Downtown Kamloops: Scenic Sunday, September 19, 2010

Thank you to my newest follower, Kiprotich from Kenya.

This is a continuation of a series of photos I've been taking of the City of Kamloops while I am here on a month long stay. I snapped all of these on September 6, 2010 when I first arrived. It was very quiet downtown as it is an annual statutory holiday and very little is open downtown. You can see more photos of this city if you click here, here and here.

View towards the north wherein lies the city and beyond that, the rivers and mountains.

Sacred Heart Catholic Church. Such a pretty little brick building.

I love the balustrade.

Canadian and Provincial flags flying on hospital grounds.

A view of the city from the 6th floor.


Main street of the downtown core.

Lamp posts and fare meters for parking.
Another view of the main street.

Yet another view of the main street. Though virtually everything was closed there were actually quite a few walking downtown. Mostly young people. My guess is they were college students as the library is close by.

The Plaza Hotel  is in the background with the green roof top. This is an historic hotel and it is furnished in Victorian style.


Some lovely planters line the streets.  You can see it was rather windy.


I love the vibrant red of these petunias.
Thanks for stopping by!  You can look for more Scenic Sunday blogs here.

  1. This city is right in the mountains, isn't it? How beautiful! I love the pretty brickwork on the street, I would love to take a walk through there.

  2. Hi Ginny, yes the city used to be in the valley but the valley is very narrow so it has spread all over the mountains. I believe the brickwork was only added within the decade and along with the flowers it makes for a lovely setting. Glad you enjoyed it!
