Uniquely blessed, the Dunbar neighbourhood is set on the rise of a hill, with extensive Pacific Spirit Park to the west, the Fraser River shoreline to the south, and numerous sandy beaches to the north. Its high street is a vibrant community of independent shops, bakeries, and cafés. The residential avenues are lined with stately trees–many dating back to 1917. Some of Vancouver’s oldest and most respected private and public schools are here, as well as the UBC. With miles of pristine forest trails, many equestrian stables, and several golf courses and tennis courts, residents enjoy an active lifestyle.
