New Westminster – The Heights

The Heights is a residential neighbourhood of established single-family homes along the south slope of the Westminster hills along the Burnaby border at 10th Avenue. The area’s elevation means many homes have spectacular eastern views up the Fraser River to Mt. Baker.


Neighbourhood amenities

The Heights is a quiet family-oriented neighbourhood that offers easy access to commercial shops and services along East Columbia in Sapperton as well as the Burnaby border.

East Columbia offers an array of neighbourhood shops like Banana Lab and Cap’s The Original Bike Shop, eateries like Thai New West and Fratelli Bakery.

It’s also perfectly situated between two of New Westminster’s largest parks, Hume Park and Queen’s Park. It’s just across 10th Avenue from Burnaby’s Cariboo Park which offers tennis courts, sports fields and a playground.

The Heights is well-situated to Royal Columbian Hospital, one of New Westminster’s largest employers. More health care employment is expected to be attracted to the area in future years as the hospital is expanded.

The neighbourhood is close to two SkyTrain stations. It’s also easily accessible to major thoroughfares like Highway One and 10th Avenue that take commuters to Vancouver, Burnaby and beyond.




Residents of the Heights can get to major SkyTrain stations like 22nd and Lougheed Station by two regular bus routes. Braid and Sapperton stations are also nearby.
