Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our Queen's Park neighbourhood is a 5 block x 5 block area in New Westminster that is noted for its older, craftsman style character homes, quiet streets, and lots of trees and gardens. Bounded by the large Queen's Park on the east and Sixth Street on the west (a well-developed commercial street), it is a great neighbourhood for walking and is close to bicycle trails and public transit. There is very good local shopping and an assortment of restaurants and cafes. It is definitely one of the more desirable neighbourhoods in greater Vancouver.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

We live in a quiet neighbourhood but can walk to most of the stores and services we need, including 2 supermarkets, 1 health food store, 1 bakery, 3 pharmacies, 3 coffee shops, 2 liquor stores, a wide variety of restaurants (Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Greek, Malaysian, French Canadian, German, Italian, Thai, Mongolian Grill, Canadian), and a wide range of retail stores in the two nearby malls and along Sixth Street and adjoining streets. There are 2 live theatres within walking distance and you can easily walk to 2 large parks with extensive outdoor recreational and sports facilities, as well as 2 community centres. If this is not enough, Vancouver is a wonderful and diverse cosmopolitan city that is only 30-45 minutes away.
