An amazing community where families come together

Glenrosa Resident's Association

The Glenrosa Resident’s Association originally began as the Glenrosa Homeowner’s Association in 1976. The original object of the society was to promote and organize the interests, functions, and activities set out for the owners of residential dwellings. Fast forward to 1996 when the members of the organization went ahead and not only changed the name to the Glenrosa Resident’s Association, but also allowed ALL resident's of Glenrosa to be involved, and ensured incorporation as a society on April 8th, 1997.

The purpose is to represent an improvement to the livability, safety, and security of our neighbourhoods as part of a changing and growing City and District Municipality in partnership with Council and staff. The Association is a legally incorporated non-profit society of Glenrosa residents, formed to ensure that the quality of life in the Glenrosa area is maintained and enhanced. The Glenrosa community is the largest community in the City of West Kelowna, with approximately 6600 residents, over 3000 homes over a geographical area of 8 sq. kilometers. Glenrosa includes farmland, agricultural, rural, and urban settings. Become a member today to help keep the future a priority in the beautiful place we call home.
