Sun Rivers is a unique community set on leased land belonging to the Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc, that has been developed and designed around the award winning golf course. Located on the south facing hillside above the South Thompson River, the neighbourhood has been divided into individual community associations with their own architectural theme. This area is the newest in Kamloops and is still under construction with many new lots and newly built homes coming available. The land on which Sun Rivers has been built is under a 99-year lease agreement from the federal government.
The word Kamloops is the English translation of the Shuswap word Tk’emlúps, meaning ‘where the rivers meet,’ and for centuries has been the home of the Tk’emlupsemc, ‘people of the confluence.’
At one time the Secwepemc people occupied one large Traditional territory covering approximately 145,000 square kilometers. In 1811, after European contact, the colonial government divided the Secwepemc people into 17 distinct groups with specific parcels of land designated to each. The Kamloops Reserve land base was established in 1862 under the direction of Governor James Douglas.
