In addition, you are 2 stops from Oakridge Centre – one of Vancouver’s best shopping centres. It is soon to be transformed into a spectacular community hub boasting more shops,  community amenities, a nine-acre public park and arts programming.

Get Outside

Though Marine Gateway is a vibrant urban neighbourhood, you can escape to more natural surroundings easily.  You are about 15 minutes away from Pacific Spirit Regional Park on the UBC peninsula. Here you’ll find an extensive trail system that winds its way through 750 hectares of new and old growth forests.  Just across the Fraser River in Richmond, you can enjoy the Sea Island Conservation Area and Iona Beach Regional Park while the city’s iconic Queen Elizabeth Park is a few stops North on the Canada line. Here you can enjoy beautifully landscaped gardens and a visit the tropical gardens inside the MacMillan Bloedel Conservatory.
