Vancouver West – Shaughnessy
4515 GRANVILLE ST, VANCOUVER, BC V6J 4E1, CANADA
Shaughnessy is one of Vancouver’s most prestigious neighbourhoods and is where some of the wealthiest Vancouverites call home. The Crown Jewel of Vancouver extends from W 41st Ave to W 16th Ave and runs between Arbutus St and Oak St. Named for Thomas Shaughnessy, former president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the neighbourhood features spectacularly designed estates, many with historical designations.
While mostly residential, Shaughnessy is bordered by Arbutus Village mall, Granville Street’s designer boutiques and Kerrisdale’s markets and cafés. Oak and King Edward St also features an outlet mall with a supermarket, various restaurants, cafes and Dragon Ball Tea House—a neighbourhood favourite.
There are plenty of community centres and larger parks in the surrounding neighbourhoods, with easy access for Shaughnessy residents, as well as Angus Park, donated to the city by the CPR, and the Kerrisdale Running Track. It is also home to VanDusen Botanical Garden and the Bloedel Conservatory, which hosts the annual Festival of Lights.
Canuck Place, a hospice for children with life-threatening illnesses, can be found housed in one of Vancouver’s most elaborate mansions.
