Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our home is centrally located in one of Vancouver's best residential neighbourhoods. We are a half block (2 minute walk) from a 20 minute bus to downtown (or a 10 minute drive, or pleasant 30 minute bike ride -- all of which we regularly utilize). We are an 8 minute drive to Vancouver's stunning beaches, or an 10 minute drive to Granville Island Public Market -- all easily accessible by bus, bike or walk. We are a 30 minute urban walk (or minutes by car) to 5 unique neighbourhood villages, each with their own special shops and restaurants. In addition to being close to some of Vancouver's best pedestrian/cycling greenways, our home is close to the beautiful University of British Columbia including its hiking trails through the forested Pacific Spirit Park, as well as the architecturally gorgeous Museum of Anthropology.
