Why We Like Kitsilano
Best Pooch Dog Walkers In Kitsilano
Situated between the ever-popular Granville Island and Point Grey, Kitsilano stretches along the south shore of English Bay and is renowned for being one of the city’s hubs for excellent food. The neighborhood boasts a wide range of restaurants and retail stores, particularly along West 4th Avenue and West Broadway.
If you look north from Burrard Bridge, you will see Vanier Park, a vast waterfront greenspace that is home to some of Vancouver’s top family-friendly attractions. These include the Museum of Vancouver, H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, and the Vancouver Maritime Museum. It is also the site of the Bard on the Beach Shakespeare festival, which runs from June to September every year. Follow the waterfront, and you’ll come across Kitsilano Beach, a bustling summer spot that features beach volleyball tournaments, picnics, and lots of beautiful people soaking up the sun. The famous Kitsilano Pool, a massive outdoor saltwater public pool located right by the beach, is a must-visit. In the summer months, the neighborhood is also host to various community festivals such as Greek Days on West Broadway and the Khatsalano Festival centered around West 4th Avenue.
