Strathcona Neighbourhood


      Strathcona is Vancouvers First and Oldest neighbourhood. It is a very unique community with a rich history and has the most ethnically and socially mixed diversity in the city. A broad range of housing types, income, race and culture is what makes this area special. From the original rowhomes to restored Victorian and Edwardian heritage homes the housing is as diverse as its residents. Strathcona has vast amounts of green parkland, neighborhood cafes and delis, corner grocery stores and a magic and charm of its own and a nostalgia of earlier times. It has a spirit that cant be found anywhere else in Vancouver which has, together with its history and sense of community offered its residents a deeper meaning and sense of pride.
