In the world of real estate, the commonly recited mantra is location, location, location. With this in mind, it is no wonder that people find Dunbar to be one of Vancouver’s most desirable neighbourhoods to call home. Majestic heritage trees line the streets, and ornamental cherry trees display their bursts of colour each spring. Block after block, Dunbar houses are an architectural delight. Parks are abundant, and right on the doorstep is the Grande dame of them all, Pacific Spirit Regional Park, which is a walkers, runners, and dog walkers paradise, in fact, the park welcomes an average of 360,000 dogs per year!
Known for being a safe and quiet community, with the active assistance of the volunteer Dunbar Community Patrol, organized by the Dunbar Residents’ Association, Dunbar is a place where you feel far from the madding crowd. At the same time, it is conveniently close to the University of British Columbia, while being a hop, skip and jump away from downtown Vancouver and the Vancouver International Airport (approximately a 20-minute drive in either direction if you are counting!)
