Tobiano is a master-planned community set above the scenic shores of Kamloops Lake. Embracing the wild montane landscape of the Thompson Valley, Tobiano offers unsurpassed residential living on an award-winning Thomas McBroom-designed golf course, with clubhouse and marina, along with plans for a neighbourhood commercial crossroads, equestrian centre and pedestrian-scaled village.

Extending over 1,000 acres of waterfront, Tobiano enjoys another 17,000 acres of ranch and back country recreation comprising a community backyard second to none. Homes at Tobiano are designed as distinct neighbourhoods connected by landscaped walkways and riding paths – all celebrating an active lifestyle set overlooking Kamloops Lake.

Placemark continues to build on this legacy with designs that celebrate all that Thompson living has to offer.
