Burnaby – Parkcrest

Parkcrest is an established neighbourhood of single-family homes between Lougheed Highway and Union Street, from Springer Avenue in the west and Sperling and Kensington avenues to the east. It’s gentle slope down towards the Central Valley affords some terrific views towards the skylines of Vancouver and Burnaby’s Metrotown area.

Neighbourhood amenities

Parkcrest’s central location means it’s close to Burnaby’s booming Brentwood and Lougheed Town Centre areas with their array of shops, restaurants and services. Both malls are in the early stages of massive redevelopment that will transform them into major regional commercial and business hubs. For a more neighbourhood shopping experience,  the city’s lively Heights commercial district on Hastings Street is where independent multicultural restaurants, delis and shops abound.

Kensington Park, at Parkcrest’s north end, has a nine-hole pitch and putt golf course, outdoor pool, baseball diamonds, soccer pitches and tennis courts as well as a busy hockey rink. For more rugged recreation, the hiking and biking trails of Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area are only a short distance away. At the summit of Burnaby Mountain sits Simon Fraser University.

Nearby Barnet Marine Park is a quintessential West Coast paradise with Burnaby’s only beach, a boat launch, picnic areas, a pier where crabbers try their luck at catching dinner, walking trails and stunning views across the Burrard Inlet to the North Shore Mountains and Indian Arm.

Schools

Transit

Buses connect much of Parkcrest to the Brentwood and Lake City SkyTrain stations for quick transport into Vancouver. Hastings Street is within walking distance where major bus routes link Vancouver and Simon Fraser University.

Parkcrest real estate

Detached houses make up the majority of the residential real estate available. Some older townhouses are also available in limited supply.
