What started as housing for the 2010 Olympic athletes has blossomed to one of the most coveted areas in Vancouver.
As The Birds keep watch over the community, you’ll feel how vibrant the neighbourhood is with people buzzing along the seawall, chattering on the patios and relaxing in the village square. The dynamic, yet calm energy of the community makes for a great place to live.
Olympic Village is located on the edge of False Creek and bordered by Mount Pleasant East and Mount Pleasant West.
Hinge Park is just to the west and has ample green space to loung in the summer. There’s also a beautiful community garden and a fenced in off-leash dog park so that your furry friends can let loose and have some fun. Activities in Olympic Village are not limited to just land. The Creekside Paddling Centre is right on the doorstep and is home to The Canadian International Dragon Boat Festival Society. This floating facility serves the huge demand for public padding programs in False Creek by providing instruction, boats and equipment for public use, and hosting paddling competitions – including North America’s largest Dragon Boat Festival.
The BMO Theatre Centre is the cultural hub in the community with several plays and performances throughout the year.
Transit is a breeze. With both the Skytrain station and Canada Line transit station within walking distance, getting around the city is a breeze. Locals can access downtown, the waterfront, Metrotown or Vancouver International Airport with ease.. Looking to jump across the pond? The Aquabus ferry (a super cute and colourful mini tugboats) jumps between 8 locations in False Creek and can land you in awesome locations like Granville Island Market and Marinaside in Yaletown.
That’s probably one of the greatest perks of living in Olympic Village. Everything is litterally at your doorstep. You want big box brand names for some heavy duty shopping? Sure – London Drugs & MEC. Craving a pint on the patio? Ok – Craft, Tap & Barrel and Brewhall. Grabbing a bite? The Flying Pig, Nook and Tractor. It’s just a small sample size of what’s on tap in the village. Simply awesome for a micro community.
