Neighbourhood amenities

Near the corner of Burrard and W 4th St is a shopping district that distinctively sells outdoor goods such as snowboards, bikes, skis, canoes, kayaks, camping and outdoor apparel. The whole street is filled with great spots to eat and boasts some of Vancouver’s best restaurants including The Oakwood Canadian Bistro, Annalena and Linh Cafe. The main street offers a variety of ethnic cuisines and varying price ranges for those looking for something fancier or a little more casual. In the summer, the unique neighbourhood hosts Khatsahlano; the one day street festival is a celebration of arts and culture.

Most of the recreational activities occur around Kitsilano Beach. During the summer months, Kits Beach becomes the central hub for beach volleyball, running and hanging out. There is also an outdoor pool, Kitsilano Pool, which is Vancouver’s only salt-water pool and is Canada’s longest pool. Visitors can also find tennis courts available near the beach.

Kitsilano is home to many cultural and historic centres. Bard on the Beach is western Canada’s largest Shakespeare festival. Its mission is to perform and explore the different Shakespearean plays. Although it is a seasonal festival, it holds various classes year round and has been open for 25 years. The Maritime Museum, Museum of Vancouver and HR MacMillan Space Centre can be found all in Vanier Park. The museums and space centre are great educational tools to learn about the history of Vancouver, modern cultural and societal values and space.
