Vancouver’s unique setting is what makes it so special. It is surrounded by mountains and the sea. You’re close to nature, but it is a diverse and thriving metropolis. The best of both the urban and rural worlds are available to residents.
Vancouver’s Downtown core is on a peninsula. It is surrounded on three sides by water so the only way to grow it is by building more. It is extremely urbanized and condensed in a small area. This makes it a great spot for office blocks and residential high-rises that create a spectacular skyline.
The whole area is surrounded by water, with easy access to the Vancouver Seawall as well as many beaches.
The Downtown area also includes the Stanley Park which is one of North America’s largest urban parks, with more than 1,000 acres of park, surrounded by the sea wall.
English Bay is located south of downtown and offers a variety of sandy beaches (English Bay Beach Second Beach, Third Beach, Sunset Beach, and Third Beach). These beaches are great for those who need a break away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Downtown is a residential area with more than 500,000 people living in a small area that is easily accessible by foot.
