Fun Alley Lower Lonsdale Shipyards North Vancouver

About Us

Main photo is Fun Alley in the Lower Lonsdale Shipyards.

Lonsdale Avenue in North Vancouver is amongst the oldest “high streets” in the Lower Mainland and connects Upper Lonsdale, Central Lonsdale, and Lower Lonsdale all the way down to the Lonsdale Quay pier waterfront and Seabus adjacent to the Shipyards District. Bordered to the West by the neighbourhoods of Capilano River and Edgemont Village and to the East by Deep Cove and Lynn Valley.

With a varied and diverse cultural hub living up and down the corridor, Lonsdale Avenue cuts across Highway 1 from North to South and effectively breaks the North Shore into 4 quadrants. It’s truly centrally located and without a doubt has the best lifestyle of any major roadway around the world. Mountains for hiking and skiing, a robust culinary scene and hundreds of shops and mom and pop businesses throughout. Not to mention the boating and water sports in the summer.


If you live or work near Lonsdale Avenue even a few kilometres off to either side, you will want to make a regular visit to our website to find new things to do and see as well as read current events and news. We work directly with the local shop owners and community to come up with accurate and useful timely content.

The Lonsdale corridor is a great place to raise a family, own a business or invest in real estate. The high quality lifestyle mixed with the stable and growing economy and property value make it a sound place to setup roots. As well seniors looking to retire can find excellent amenities and a great community surrounding and supporting them.

In the coming weeks and months we are going to roll out a business directory, events database, local interactive maps, detailed tourism and how-to guides, an online merch store and continue publishing tons of useful content you will love, ensuring you have the best quality of life on Lonsdale Avenue, and throughout Metro Vancouver, the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, and beyond.

As a local marketing agency and digital magazine, ultimately we hope to promote Lonsdale as one of the best “high streets” in all of Canada and highlight the areas local businesses, restaurants, charities, organizations and the amazing people within the community. While also publishing witty reads that are good for the soul and bottom line, and relate to everyone, everywhere.

We strive to support the City of North Vancouver, District of North Vancouver, North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, Lower Lonsdale Business Improvement Association, the North Shore Tourism Association, and our friends in the District of West Vancouver (and sometimes up into Squamish and Whistler).
