Quilchena, translates to “flat place near the water,” and has a neighbourhood history that goes back to the 1960s. CP Railway leased land to the Quilchena Golf Course but in 1965 the lease expired, the Parks Board bought the land and gave the park a facelift. The Park is right in the middle of the West side of Vancouver and is a green oasis with a view of the north shore mountains that makes it very west coast. It is the anchor of the neighbourhood in both location and spirit. Once you lift your spirits in the park, a short walk takes you to coffee or shopping on Arbutus or W.41st. Kerrisdale.

The quality of life in Quilchena is exemplary peaceful west side living. With easy access to amenities, recreation and quick access to downtown, UBC, or Kerrisdale, it is a great anchor location. There are many home styles in “micro-hoods” found in various areas. There are 1960s single-family dwellings, low-rise condos, townhouses, and low rise apartment units.
