Lower Lonsdale is not only the oldest community in North Vancouver but it is also the place with the best condominium living and accessibility to downtown Vancouver using the Seabus.
Running in parallel with Moodyville to the East which has an outstanding beer district and thriving mixed use industrial residential spaces, and to the West being Waterfront Park which is an ideal place to go for a stroll or bike riding with friends and family. The Chiba Japanse Garden is also here.
If you are looking for the best location with the most hip and trendy things to do and see in the Lonsdale corridor then you will want to live or work in Lower Lonsdale (LoLo as ‘some’ of the locals call it.)
At the base of Lonsdale Avenue in front of the Polygon Gallery and Waterfront is likely one of the best spots in Greater Vancouver for Instagram photos and grabbing a cold local craft beer on a patio after work or on the weekends.
The local transit options are outstanding with walking access to the Seabus and going over to downtown Vancouver, and at the Lonsdale Quay there is a bus exchange with routes leading all over Metro Vancouver.
The most recent attraction in Lower Lonsdale is at The Shipyards Commons District where a newly opened water park and community space has become the place to be for families on the weekends. There is plenty of seating space and free wifi here in front of the Burrard Dry Dock which makes for a great place for working from your laptop or watching the sunset.
