Living in Kitsilano

Kitsilano is an eclectic neighbourhood of character homes and walk-up apartments where the city’s Greek community blends with old hippies and young students. The mix is vibrant, energetic and one of the reasons why, at the age of 40 and newly single, I chose to move here to recharge my life.

Although I had spent my youth in South Granville, Kerrisdale and Marine Drive, a bohemian life on the edge of English Bay and at the entrance to False Creek appealed to me. I moved to a small rented apartment on the slopes above the neighbourhood’s famous, namesake beach and began walking and cycling along the shore, past the maritime museum and through Vanier Park, and discovering the area’s many cafés.

While the pace of life becomes more frenetic in summer, the shoreline is part of the charm. Beach bums and picnickers crowd in (and watch out for those late July evenings when the beaches become clogged with sightseers keen to catch the annual fireworks displays), confirming the area’s fame as a destination. The revival of Greek Day on Broadway (the last Sunday in June of each year) and the success of the arts and culture Khatsalano festival a couple of weeks later add to the fun.

But what makes Kitsilano a place to raise a family are the close ties among neighbours in the single-family zones. Sure, the detached houses are expensive (something being seen across the city), but for those who can afford to live here, the texture of the community fabric is warm and comforting. People care for their community, and one another. The tide of development that has brought change to other neighbourhoods has, so far, invigorated and polished this one.

Even though I live in Point Grey now, I enjoy returning to the shops along West 4th (the café at Whole Foods is a popular spot) and Calhoun’s on Broadway is a long-standing favourite (and a popular hangout for students). Aphrodite’s pie shop on West 4th at Dunbar is one of the newer establishments in this well-established neighbourhood, and the perfect place after a walk along the foreshore at low tide or a ride down Point Grey Road, now – for better or worse – a thoroughfare for bikes.

With development of a greenway through the Arbutus Corridor and the constant evolution of the Sunday farmer’s market by the community centre – the busiest in the province – Kitsilano continues to draw me, and it’s a place I look forward to helping you know better.
