Westwold is an unincorporated settlement in the Interior of British Columbia.[1] A small farming and logging community, it is located between Kamloops and Vernon on Highway 97. The original name for the settlement was "Grande Prairie".[2] Glacial tills near the townsite of Westwold have provided fossils from the Sangamon interglacial period 130,000 years ago.[3]
