Welcome to Downtown Vancouver, the heart of the lower mainland full of vibrant neighborhoods each with their own unique character. The downtown peninsula is surrounded by water on three sides – Burrard Inlet, English Bay and False Creek – and lined by the seawall, a popular running, walking and biking route. World famous Stanley Park, a 1,001 acre public park, sits at the north west end. The shopping and financial business district are centered around Burrard Street, while areas like Coal Harbour, the West End, Yaletown and Gastown offer a mix of residential condo living with restaurants and shopping at street level. The peninsula is home to nearly 100,000 people making it one of the most densely populated areas in North America. Those looking for luxury will find it in the penthouses and waterfront view buildings throughout Downtown Vancouver. It is also home to the Vancouver Canucks hockey team, BC Lions football team and Vancouver Whitecaps MLS team as well as major concerts and events throughout the year.
