A Small Neighborhood With Big Features
A rectangular area nestled between upscale Shaughnessy and middle-class Main, and bordered by 16th Avenue on the north and 41st to the south, Cambie is home to Vancouver’s iconic Queen Elizabeth Park. Situated on Vancouver’s only mountain – Little Mountain – the park’s fabulous quarry gardens are among the most popular sites for summer weddings in all of the Lower Mainland.
Nearby, Nat Bailey Stadium is home turf for the Vancouver Canadians professional baseball team.
Housing in Cambie
Cambie comprises a mixture of single-family homes, low and mid-rise rental apartments and condos, and has become a vibrant hub appealing to all ages, income levels, and ethnic groups. The Skytrain Canada Line, opened in 2009, has helped in that, of course. Many heritage houses from the early 20th century can be found in the Cambie area though quite a few have become strata and rental properties due to the many young professionals and students attracted to the area due to its proximity to Vancouver’s downtown and to Langara College, just eight blocks south.
Shopping and Recreation
With a number of chain outlets selling everything one could possibly need, as well as a many small neighborhood shops, Cambie residents never have to leave their neighborhood to shop. However, near Cambie’s southern border is Oakridge Centre, one of Vancouver’s top shopping malls. In the vicinity of King Edward and Oak Streets, in Cambie’s northern section, are a couple smaller shopping centers as well.
The Cambie neighborhood is also blessed with many great dining options, from Seasons In The Park, atop Little Mountain, to the Dragon Ball Teahouse, the Landmark HotPot House, and Henry’s Bistro.
In addition to Queen Elizabeth Park, Cambie is blessed with beautiful Douglas Park and Riley Park. Douglas Park’s Community Centre is one of Vancouver’s most popular neighborhood recreational facilities. Together, these parks offer Cambie residents the opportunity to play soccer, baseball, field hockey and football. Walking, jogging or dog-walking are also enjoyable pastimes in the area. Cambie is also home to the world-famous Van Dusen Botanical Gardens.
A number of prime medical facilities and services, including BC Children’s Hospital, BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre and the headquarters of Canadian Blood Services are found within the Cambie neighborhood as well.
