Neighbourhood amenities

Stanley Park is the West End’s most notable attraction and one of Vancouver’s best parks. In fact, Stanley Park has even been voted the best park in the world by Trip Advisor. It features a beautiful seawall that is great for biking, running or rollerblading as well as multiple beaches that are not accessible by car. Locals flock to the beaches to play volleyball or just spend the day tanning in the sun. Most of the forest in the park is second and third growth with an extensive network of trails throughout. Lagoon Lake is a great place to watch swans and different types of birds as well. In addition, Stanley Park is home to the Vancouver Aquarium and Teahouse Restaurant.

English Bay is only minutes away and is one of Vancouver’s most popular beaches for its easy access and great beach community. English Bay is home to Vancouver’s Celebration of Lights, an international fireworks competition, which draws hundreds of thousands of people every summer. In the winter, brave souls ring in the new year by plunging into the frigid water for the Polar Bear Swim, one of the oldest and largest in the world.

The West End’s main shopping and entertainment districts are located along Robson, Davie and Denman St. Robson St has become the main shopping district in Vancouver and features a plethora of retail stores.
