The Neighbourhood

Kitsilano

VANCOUVER WEST

Kitsilano (“Kits” as it is affectionately called by residents) is ranked as the second most recognizable community in Canada (after Toronto’s Rosedale area).

Laidback living.
Beachside lifestyle.

Kitsilano is known for its spectacular scenery and endless stretches of beaches. One of the most coveted neighbourhoods in the country, Kitsilano is the perfect example of a beachside community.

Kitsilano (“Kits” as it is affectionately called by residents) is ranked as the second most recognizable community in Canada (after Toronto’s Rosedale area). Known for its spectacular scenery and endless stretches of beaches, Kitsilano blends the best of both worlds:

Urban, with its proximity to the downtown core and myriad clubs, restaurants, shopping and office buildings that make up the downtown experience; Kitsilano is hip suburban, with its eclectic mix of coffee joints, neighbourhood pubs, and local hangouts for good eating and excellent people watching.

With neighbourhood eateries, excellent shopping, and a panoramic mountain/beach setting right on your doorstep, is it any wonder that Kitsilano is the place – secretly anyway – everyone wants to live?

GET OUTSIDE

A big part of living in “Kits” is being active & enjoying the outdoor lifestyle.

There’s no shortage of things to do in this stunning beachside community.

Most recreation focuses on the waterfront with Kits beach, an outdoor pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, beach volleyball, the seawall for jogging/running, biking and rollerblading… the list goes on and on. The Kitsilano Community Centre is another primary centre for recreational activities. In addition, a wide variety of community programs are offered through many of the area’s schools. Cultural activities are provided by the Maritime Museum, the Vancouver Museum, the Conservatory of Music, and the Observatory.
