Westside Neighbourhood - Kerrisdale 凯利斯德区

kerrisdale

 

The beauty of Kerrisdale is another affluent and residential neighbourhood of south-western Vancouver, with tree-lined streets and specially designed street furniture to further add to its charm. Professionals, doctors, business people, and professors along with their families are long-time residents of the neighbourhood in single-family homes or low- and high-rise apartments. You’ll notice that many of these heritage houses have retained a slight European charm to them. Less than 20 minutes away from both downtown and the University, Kerrisdale is the perfect neighbourhood to raise a family in a quiet and safe haven with its own shopping district and close access to the city center. Its school catchment of Vancouver’s top-notch schools, various parks and exclusive golf courses also adds to its residential appeal.

 

All of your shopping and dining needs can be met within Kerrisdale Village, the main commercial area with over 200 retailers along 41st Avenue and West Boulevard. Here is where you will experience laid-back village vibes, old and new local boutiques, as well as your fix for charming teahouses, family-owned bakeries, eateries and organic markets. I haven’t stopped over in Kerrisdale unless I’ve made a visit to one of my favourite department stores, Hills of Kerrisdale. It may be a small department store, but it’s a classic one selling northwest high-end fashion since 1914. As for grub, you can’t beat a classic handmade margherita pizza from the Bufala pizzeria or fish ‘n chips from the Fish Cafe!
