This family-friendly neighbourhood is located in the southwestern section of Vancouver. Quiet, tree-lined streets, ample parkland, and access to some of the city’s best schools make it a great option for families. Housing is gathered around the Dunbar Village area, a small commercial enclave providing residents with ample options for shopping and dining. In the spring, the neighbourhood is famous for its cherry blossom trees that only add beauty to this peaceful oasis.
