These homes sit on lots often a little smaller than a quarter acre, have beautiful views and nice yards. Due to their location the City of Kamloops does not allow owners to dig any foundations due to the type of ground they sit on. This is why there are predominantly modular homes in this region.

These homes benefit from some city services but all depends on their location along the route.
Homes that you find along Meadowland Crescent North and South are also larger residential parcels or small acreages. The nice thing about this area is the school and public transportation is within a couple minutes walk.
