The Shaughnessy Vibe
A prestigious neighborhood between 41st Avenue on its southern edge and 16th Avenue to the north, Shaughnessy’s eastern border is Oak Street while its western one meanders considerably. This places Shaughnessy smack-dab in the center of Vancouver, offering residents convenient car access, via major thoroughfares to the downtown area, the University of British Columbia, and Vancouver International Airport.
Stately homes and old-world elegance are what comes to mind when we think of Vancouver’s 6,000 acre Shaughnessy neighborhood. Developed by CP Rail in the early 1900s as an alternative to the West End for Vancouver’s ‘nouveaux riche’, prominent landscape architects from Eastern Canada and New York were hired to layout the areas wide, curving and tree-lined boulevards. Many of the splendid homes in Shaughnessy have been designed by Vancouver’s top architects.
Though only one school is actually in Shaughnessy – that being Shaughnessy Elementary School – the area’s wealthy residents’ insistence on private education for their children led to the development of numerous private schools just outside the area’s boundaries. Among these are Vancouver College, Little Flower Academy, York House School and the Vancouver Talmud Torah. Also, the prestigious Crofton House and St. George’s are also excellent education options.
In the early 1990s, Arthur Griffiths – owner of the Vancouver Canucks NHL team – partnered with others to create Canuck Place, the first free-standing hospice for children in North America. This Shaughnessy institution offers active and palliative care to suffering children as well as psychological and spiritual aid to the children’s families.
