Westside Neighbourhood - Dunbar 邓巴区

dunbar

 

In an area nestled in between everything that a family could possibly need, Dunbar is considered a desirable suburban neighbourhood. Its safe and quiet community sits smack in the middle next to the massive forested Pacific Spirit Regional Park to its west, beaches to its north, and farmlands to its south – quite an interesting geographical make-up. The area is mostly dominated by single family dwellings and streets lined with trees and cherry blossoms. Plenty of parks for all kinds of sports and recreational activities can be found within the neighbourhood of Dunbar, including Balaclava Park for its running track, and Chaldecott Water Park for its family friendly water park and massive soccer field. Head down to the southern sister community of Southlands for access to some of the city’s best public and private golf courses.

 

Urban life takes place along Dunbar Street where you’ll find over 300 shops, eateries, cafes, bakeries, marketplaces, and services to meet your needs. Not to mention a dedicated Dunbar Village Business Association that’ll revive the neighbourhood with fun events for every holiday. My favourite cafés and restaurants in the area best known to give life to the community include Kokopelli Café, Butter Bakery & Café and Jethro’s Fine Grub.
