Westside Neighbourhood - Shaughnessy 桑纳斯区

shaunghessy

 

Smack in the core of Vancouver’s Westside with all the excitement and close distance to downtown is the prosperous community of Shaughnessy. It sits nestled between Kits and Fairview in the north, Arbutus and Dunbar in the west, South Granville in the south, and East Vancouver in the east. Granville Street is the main thoroughfare that runs up and down through the district, and the main gateway to its neighbouring suburbs and the airport. The area was owned and created by the Canadian Pacific Railway in the 1900s, and many grand heritage homes designed by Vancouver’s top architects in classic British and American architectural styles still remain. One heritage mansion dubbed Glen Brae has been restored into what is now Canuck Place, a beautiful and recognizable children’s hospice. Shaughnessy is also a proud location of many beautiful gardens, the most popular one at 22 hectares is VanDusen Botanical Garden, an oasis that hosts a ton of fun events, including its astonishing Festival of Lights exhibit during the Christmas season.

 

The great thing about the neighbourhood is that because it is largely a residential area, it serves as a pleasant and quiet oasis perfect for a family to reside in. Shopping districts are plentiful along Oak Street and South Granville Street, or in its neighbouring districts from Arbutus and Cambie Village to its northwest, Fairview to its north, and West 41st Avenue to its south.
