Vancouver Neighbourhood Guides

Point Grey

Bordered to the west by Pacific Spirit Regional Park, to the north by English Bay, and to the East by Kitsilano, Point Grey is one of Canada’s most desirable neighbourhoods. With UBC further west, these beautiful University Endowment lands are surrounded by nature. They are high on the cliffs that overlook the Salish Sea.

Point Grey is home to the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, The Jericho Sailing Club, The Jericho Tennis Club, Jericho Beach, and Spanish Banks. All these beautiful features and amenities tie together this prestigious waterfront neighbourhood, while pride of ownership and community are reflected throughout this historic Vancouver area. With an abundance of parks, Point Grey boasts three times the average park space per person of any location in the lower mainland.

Point Grey's Appeal

Point Grey is the perfect destination for nature lovers; its waterfront is home to Jericho and Spanish Banks’ spectacular beaches. Here you can watch the Laser Dinghies race about the bay while sunbathers, bikers, and beach volleyball players soak in the sun. You will see many freighters anchored in the harbour as they wait to unload their cargo, and pleasure crafts troll up and down the shore looking for salmon that come in the millions to spawn in our local rivers and streams.

Point Grey Village on West 10th is home to the quaint shopping area of this historic neighbourhood. Here you will find a mixture of shops, restaurants, professional services, and coffee houses, all nestled in along the same street.

Parks

With parks abound and an endless trail network that traverses through them, one is never far from nature while living in this area. Whether you are out to go bird watching or off for a jog, the numerous parks offer the perfect escape from the daily grind.

Schools

With some of the best public schools in the province, your children will have many options on where to be educated. University Hill, Southlands, Queen Elizabeth, Jules Quesnel, and Queen Mary are all elementary schools that land in the catchment zones. While University Hill Secondary and Lord Byng Secondary are the local high schools.

Numerous Clubs

Several clubs offer various forms of recreation while also providing opportunities to network and socialize. The Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, Jericho Sailing Club, Jericho Tennis Club, and the Rotary Women’s Association are just to name a few.

Dining

Point Grey, although limited in restaurants in the neighbourhood itself, is located directly between UBC and Kitsilano, which means that you do not need to travel far to experience many of Vancouver’s excellent dining options.

Golf

The University Golf Club is a public course opened in 1929 in Pacific Spirit Regional Park. This stunning golf course has an abundance of trees, providing a challenging fairway and ample shade in the summertime.

The Point Grey Housing Market

The majority of homes in Point Grey are single-family detached homes, a rarity in urban settings, and with that comes prices in the upper ranges. There has been a push for density in this area, and the main corridors of Point Grey are being lined with strata properties with commercial units at ground level and residential units above. While the enclaves and smaller streets remain quiet and family friendly.

Your Life In Point Grey

Your Life After Work / School

After work, you can make your way to Sunset Beach for a quiet evening stroll with your significant other; from the sandy shores, you watch as the sun dips below the North Shore, and the sky glows orange with the freighters silhouetted against the backdrop of the city.

Your Life On Weekends

Your weekends will be spent at the beach soaking in the sun or playing volleyball or tennis, while younger children will be racing in English Bay on Lasers, watched closely by their instructors. With countless hiking and biking trails, you can walk or bike off your lunch through Pacific Spirit Park.

Entertainment

During the summer, volleyball and sailing are all popular recreational activities. If you have a boat at the Yacht Club, there is no better way to spend a day than on the water, whether it is cruising, fishing, or sailing, Vancouver is the gateway to some of the top yachting and diving destinations world wide.

Hiking

With the endless trails that meander their way through the numerous parks, you will not need to go far to be in nature. You can spend your day’s bird watching, hiking, biking, and jogging this unique network of trails and parks.

What You'll Love

You will love the tranquility of these communities. Surrounded by an abundance of nature, you may forget that you live within one of Canada’s densest cities. Quiet tree-lined streets, breathtaking views, and sandy beaches are extraordinary qualities that make this such a desirable neighbourhood.

What You May Not Like

The large single-family homes provide an idyllic urban setting away from the city’s hustle and bustle. If you are looking to be in the “thick of it,” this will not be the community for you. Point Grey is removed from the city center, meaning no night clubs and the bars here are generally quieter gastropubs. There are many restaurants, but generally, to find the best in the city, one needs to venture beyond these two communities’ borders.
