Living in West Vancouver means exploring nature and the vast surrounding beauty.
Pack a picnic and take a daytrip to Lighthouse Park, or work up a sweat on one of the many Cypress Mountain hiking trails. The views from this part of Metro Vancouver are unparalleled; vistas of the Strait of Georgia and the open ocean are a calming and refreshing escape from busy day-to-day city life. Swimming and cliff jumping are popular in the summer, and the par 3 golf course is a year-round destination.
West Vancouver is mainly a residential district, where many residents are retired, work from home, or take the short commute over the bridge to downtown Vancouver.
Within walking distance you will find a selection of beloved recreation and leisure facilities, such as the West Vancouver Community Centre, Aquatic Centre, Seniors’ Activity Centre and the Gleneagles Community Centre. Our West Vancouver apartments for rent offer natural beauty, convenience and unlimited recreational opportunities.
