The First Nations people the Stekatkolxne'ut had their village located on the area to western bank of the Okanagan Lake for thousands of years. This unique lofted view was perfect for scoping the valley and lake in preparation for daily hunting or fishing excursions.
During the 1800's passing fur traders would use this great vantage point as a stop over. They named the area MacDonald's Plain, which was the last name to one of their officers at the Hudson Bay Trading Company. However this name did not remain. By 1908 the area was popularly referred to as "west bank" to the Okanagan Lake and it was preserved as such.
