Vancouver Heights is located in the North-Western corner of Burnaby. From the property, there are fantastic views from Stanley Park and Vancouver harbour in the west to the North Shore Mountains and Indian Arm in the east. It's a 15 minute drive to a number of great spots including the heart of downtown Vancouver, the foot of Grouse, Cypress or Seymour Mountains, and the sandy beaches of Barnet Marine park. This is a great location!
The neighborhood is renowned for its fabulous delicatessens, coffee shops, and restaurants of every ethnicity. Public bus transportation is a 2 minute walk away. There is a marine park right below the property that offers miles of jogging, biking and hiking on trails that extend into Burnaby Mountain to the east, and to the waterfront and city to the west. It's easy to get to the top of Burnaby Mountain, the home of Simon Fraser University, with lots of great recreational opportunities and classes found there. The North Shore Mountains - Grouse, Seymour and Cypress - offer down-hill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing in the winter, and hiking trails, wildlife reserves, restaurants and picnic areas with stunning views...and so much more. Eileen Daily Leisure Centre has 2 pools, a steam room, exercise classes and weight training facilities and is a 2 minute drive away.
There are 2 parks within a 2 - 5 minute walk offering tennis courts, soccer fields, a children's wading pool and climbing apparatus'. The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) grounds are a 3 minute drive away and offer skating at the Pacific Coleseum in the winter months, and Playland, a family amusement park thats open from early spring to late summer. There is also a race track there, operating in the summer months, and the annual agricultural and amusement fair for 10 days at the end of August. Close by is the New Brighton beach park and outdoor swimming pool - great for a swim and afternoon picnic....There is so much to explore in this neighbourhood!
My family was in the harbor-tour business for many years. We really enjoyed the opportunity to take visitors out from all over the world on cruises of Vancouver harbour, seeing the mountain, ocean and city views from the water. Once again, we can offer visitors the same views - from this property in Vancouver Heights.
Aside from the convenience to so many great recreational and cultural venues, the specialness of this property is it's unbelievably great, ever changing, mountain and harbour view. You'll enjoy it too.
