Located in the center of the Lonsdale Avenue corridor, Central Lonsdale is a culinary gem and local cultural hub. With laundry mats, cafes, shops, restaurants, and plenty of other ‘mom and pop’ style shops that makes the area feel both welcoming and community focused.
Central Lonsdale is easily accessible by turning south bound off of Highway 1 onto Lonsdale Avenue. You will find many old growth trees, parks, and art installations along the roadways.
This is an ideal area to live as you can access either North or South Lonsdale while living right in the middle of all of the action. Allowing access to the Seabus for going downtown to work and also Translink bus system that goes all across the Lower Mainland from West Vancouver out into the Fraser valley.
Recently in Central Lonsdale there has been a number of new business openings and one of the crosswalks was painted into a rainbow to support open dialogue about LGBT rights in the community of North Vancouver.
The best way to define Central Lonsdale in terms of comparisons to the rest of Greater Vancouver would be it’s like a mix of Kingsway area of Vancouver with the friendliness of Davie Street and the quirkiness of Granville Street.
