Neighbourhood Guide


Downtown, Vancouver

Yaletown is known for it’s artsy but edgy vibe, towering high rises mixed with historic architecture, posh boutique stores & international cuisine.

Historic turned hip, Yaletown sure has a posh presence.

Originally a settlement for the Canadian Pacific Railway, this coveted community has since transformed into a posh location for boutique shops, services and a wide array of restaurants & bars.

Since it’s days of being the western terminus for the Canadian Pacific Railway, Yaletown has been reimagined as a sleek & boutique community anchored by two blocks of warehouse buildings converted to swanky lofts and trendy retail spaces, wrapped in luxury high rises and green spaces that weave along the seawall.

The seawall & big parks are two big draws for outdoor enthusiasts.

As the seawall weaves through the neighbourhood it connects to three main parks including George Wainborn Park, David Lam Park and Cooper's Park.

 At any given time you’ll find lots of locals on the seawall going for a walk, jog, inline skating, bike ride or taking the dog for a stroll. You’ll enjoy pausing to take in the incredible city artwork that’s dotted along the seawall.  The parks are vast and offer plenty to do, most notably David Lam Park where there’s basketball courts, playgrounds and plenty of space for the annual outdoor theatre.


The Roundhouse Community Arts and Rec Centre is the anchor in the community.

The centre features a woodworking studio, gymnasium, dance, pottery, after school childcare and a beautiful 200-seat theatre.
