Stretched along the Fraser River, South Marine borders the major artery of S.W. Marine Drive and offers a mix of old properties along with the new River District community.
The rapidly expanding River District is a 130 acre master planned community located on the south eastern edge of the community, flanking the Fraser River. Residents welcome the new addition to the neighbourhood while still enjoying the original foundation to the east. You’ll find locals enjoying the outdoors, taking advantage of the pathways or simply relaxing and taking in the view.
Residents are always leisurely strolling, running or biking on this stretch of waterfront pathway, which happens to lead to a continuous 5 km pathway extending east into the souther edge of Burnaby.
Riverfront Park, the primary park in the neighbourhood, has basketball courts, a picnic area, playground, ultimate field and public washrooms.
The River District Community Centre, located on the southern tip of Kerr Street, has drop-ins (for kids and seniors), a cardio/fitness room and yoga.
There’s no schools within the boundaries of South Marine, but just north of SW Marine Drive is several school options for families. David Oppenheimer, Captain James Cook and Sir James Douglas and Champlain Heights are nearby elementary schools. David Thompson Secondary is only a short distance away in the South Vancouver neighbourhood.
The hub of retail in South Marine lies within the new River District. If convenience is near the top of your list then you’re going to love this neighbourhood. You can start your day with a work out at Orange Theory, then pick up your groceries at Save-On-Foods, and cap it off by meeting a friend for Starbucks for a cup of joe. There’s something for everyone in this award-winning community.
A quick drive east on Marine Way you’ll be greeted by one of Vancouver’s largest outdoor shopping malls at Marine Way Market & Market Crossing Shopping Plaza. There’s a huge selection of retailers and restaurants on hand.
