New Westminster – Downtown
509 Carnarvon St, New Westminster, BC V3L 5S4, Canada
Downtown New Westminster runs along Columbia and Front streets. It was once known as the Golden Mile for its abundance of shops and restaurants that attracted visitors from all over the Lower Mainland. Even though those visitors are now more inclined to go to suburban shopping malls, the commercial strip of Downtown New Westminster still features a variety of restaurants, cafés and bars. These include Old Crow Coffee, Judge Begbies, Rain City Juicery, Re-Up BBQ and El Santo. Larger commercial developments like the Shops at New Westminster Station and Columbia Square Plaza offer staples like groceries and banking.
Downtown New Westminster is also next to the city’s historic waterfront, which has transformed from heavy industry to a linear promenade of parks, gardens, condos. They enjoy a front row seat view to the tugs, barges and even seals that float up and down the Fraser River.
