Vancouver's beach-front community
“Kits” is primarily defined by its beaches, waterfront parks and breathtaking mountain/ocean views that greet you at every turn. From Burrard St to Alma St and 16th Ave to the water, there are several micro “hoods” within Kits. Whether you are a UBC student, a busy professional, a young family or an empty nester, there is a little pocket of Kits made especially for you. Its hard to think of another neighbourhood anywhere in the world as close to the centre of a major city which offers so much access to nature and outdoor living. Kits Beach, Jericho Park, Spanish Banks and Pacific Spirit Park (just up the hill in Point Grey/UBC) offer enough beaches and trails to keep you busy all year round. West 4th Avenue (most notably Burrard to Balsam) is where you’ll find endless upscale boutiques, restaurants, cafes, spas and yoga studios. On West Broadway (especially Macdonald to Dunbar) families take advantage of numerous independent shops and restaurants, including many owned the city’s vibrant Greek community. Duncan has made Kitsilano his home since 2004 and has lived in 4 different locations here. You won’t find a better guide to find the right spot for you in this wonderful part of the city.
