Westsyde is possibly one of the most understated communities within the city of Kamloops. For people that do not already live out in the area, Westsyde often gets bypassed because prospective buyers fear the perceived distance from downtown and the infamous never-ending Westsyde Road. While it may seem like a long road, the community itself makes it well worth it, plus it really is only (approximately) 15 minutes from the downtown core of Kamloops.
Westsyde offers many great features to individuals, couples, and families of all shapes and sizes. The local Save-On Foods provides “Westsyders” with the conveniences of a commercial grocery while also providing a tight-knit community feel with friendly and familiar staff that add to the feeling of communal inclusion. For the socialite, the Westsyder Pub is a landmark of the neighbourhood with the familiar continuation of friendly staff. The pub offers various speciality nights, pool tables and a general good time that will be sure to not disappoint. Other local restaurants include Hermes Pizza and Nishino Sushi both offering a great selection of food and flavours.
For the active soul, Westsyde presents a variety of sporting activities and access to various trails and hikes sure to suit your needs. The community features a newly renovated city-operated pool and gym offering various daily classes for children and adults.
Relatively new to the Westsyde community, is the Westsyde Grappling Club operating out of Westsyde Secondary School on a massive matted space. The new grappling club offers an inviting atmosphere with classes in Judo and Jiujitsu for kids ages 6+ and adults of any skill level. Also new to the community is Westsyde Yoga held at the high school as well. Both activities are a great way to meet new people in your area as well as learn or expand your knowledge of a growing sport.
