The south Vancouver neighbourhood of Marpole is one of the city’s oldest, with mature cherry trees lining wide streets, and heritage buildings that harken to the past. At the same time, Marpole is a thriving, diverse area with the conveniences and attractions of urban living. At its heart is Marpole Village—an array of local shops, restaurants, and services that reveal a connected, ethnically-rich community. Dine on sushi and noodles, perk up with bubble tea and coffee, or pick up japanese desserts and italian sundries on your way home.
Marpole is a family-oriented neighbourhood with quality schools and recreation nearby. The area offers many reputable schools—both public and private. Public schools include Magee Secondary and Sir Winston Churchill Secondary, known for its International Baccalaureate and French Immersion programs.
The Marpole-Oakridge Community Centre and the evolving Fraser River waterfront provide recreation for residents of all ages and stages. Hit the links at Langara Golf Course or the Marine Drive Golf Club. Or cycle along the Arbutus Greenway with the whole family.
From your front door, Marpole Village is only a five minute walk. Exploring other Vancouver neighbourhoods is also effortless, by car, transit, or bike. Travelling south, a 15 minute drive takes you to Richmond, where more cultural delights and the airport await.
