Vancouver Neighbourhood Guides

Kerrisdale

Feelings of old fashioned yet modern, rustic, and yet upscale.

Kerrisdale is defined by its several sub-communities within the neighbourhood, and depending on where you live, the area can have a different “feel” from street to street. You will find large, stately homes along South West Marine Drive and Southlands, with manicured lawns and tree-lined streets. In other areas, you will find a mixture of low and high-rise condos, townhomes, and single-family homes.

No matter where you live in Kerrisdale, one of the neighbourhood’s main defining characteristics is an area called “The Village,” which is Kerrisdales central shopping hub and business district. Here you will find over 200 unique shops, including sports and fitness stores, baby and children’s fashion, bakeries, electronics, seafood, pet stores, bike stores, coffee shops, teahouses, and numerous restaurants.

Kerrisdale's Appeal

Kerrisdale is a family-friendly neighbourhood with many schools, parks, and green spaces, all adding to this area’s allure. The main shopping district provides convenient access to all your staples and amenities. With quick access to Richmond and YVR, and only 20 minutes from Downtown Vancouver, Kerrisdale is an ideal place to call home.

Kerrisdale Provides...

Golf Courses

Kerrisdale is home to two of the most beautiful golf courses in the Lower Mainland. McCleary Golf course on the Fraser River is a city-run course, while the Marine Drive Golf Club, also nestled up against the Fraser banks, is one of the oldest and most prestigious private golf clubs in the lower mainland.

Schools

Kerrisdale is an area with high residential density, and that density brings an abundance of schools. Kerrisdale Elementary, Kerrisdale Annex, McKechnie Elementary, Maple Grove Elementary, Quilchena Elementary, and McKechnie Elementary serve as primary schools to Kerrisdale residents. Point Grey and Magee offer secondary education for older children. If private school is your preferred method of education, Kerrisdale is home to the prestigious Crofton and York House, as well as Vancouver Montessori School, Glen Eden School.

Community Centres

Kerrisdale Community Centre is located near West Boulevard and West 41st Ave and has activities and programs for all ages. You will find a youth centre, seniors' centre, playground, games room, gymnasium, and fitness centre, all under one roof. Kerrisdale Community Centre is also affiliated with Kerrisdale Cyclone Taylor Arena and the Maple Grove Pool.

Parks

Kerrisdale is home to 8 parks (Arbutus Park, Elm Park, Fraser River Park, Centennial Park, Malkin Park, and Maple Park). One of the most tranquil and inspiring spots in the area, Fraser River Park achieves a pleasing balance between natural and designed settings. Large rolling lawns are perfect for picnicking or flying a kite, and beautiful views of the Fraser River are available from the boardwalks that cross restored tidal marshes and snakes between stands of poplar and alder trees. Crab apple and Nootka rose lining the pathways are reminders of these plants that farmers of the area once planted along the Fraser River dykes to protect their land from flooding.

Shopping

Kerrisdale Village has been a thriving business community since its inception in the early 20th Century. Today it offers a cornucopia of shops, eateries, and services that would rival any bustling metropolis. However, where Kerrisdale has kept up with its chic downtown neighbours, it has not lost its quaint village charm and welcoming spirit that it is so well known for.

Transportation

Major thoroughfares such as Granville Street, Marine Drive, and 49th Avenue are easily accessible routes to downtown, UBC, or the eastern suburbs. In contrast, 41st avenue provides direct access to Oakridge and Langara. Kerrisdale is very well served by public transportation, and busses frequent the area.

The Kerrisdale Housing Market

While the neighbourhood comprises many single-family detached homes, these are interspersed with a mix of low-rise and high-rise apartments, condominiums, and townhomes. If you are looking for an elegant stately home on a large lot or a one bedroom apartment, Kerrisdale offers homeownership opportunities for all.

Your Life In Kerrisdale

Your Life After Work

After work can be spent jogging along the Fraser River or walking through the quiet neighbourhoods admiring one of the 50 named heritage buildings. Unwind in one of the many coffee shops, or have dinner delivered from one of the numerous restaurants.

Your Life On Weekends

Weekends will be spent dining out, shopping, golfing, and even horseback riding. Make time for you and your significant other to spend a day at the "Village" shopping and sampling the variety of bakeries and coffee shops. Go downtown for a show or to sip a cocktail at one of Vancouver's 5-star hotel lounges.

Sports and Recreation

With two excellent golf courses, this neighbourhood should be on all avid golfers' lists of areas to consider. As well, Kerrisdale is home to several horse stables and riding paths, making this an excellent place for the equestrian. If neither of those sports interest you, you can also find indoor swimming, lawn bowling, and several gyms.

Shopping and Dining

The shopping and dining scene in Kerrisdale is second to none. The "Village," as it is so aptly named, is home to numerous stores, restaurants, and coffee shops, all easily accessible and close by.

What You'll Love

You will love the convenience of the stores, the quiet streets, and the numerous parks and golf courses. This neighbourhood provides more parks and amenities than some towns, and the southerly location makes for easy access to downtown Vancouver, Vancouver International Airport, Richmond, and the 99 and 91 hwy.
