About New Westminster – Queen’s Park:
Queen’s Park is the emerald gem of New Westminster. Encompassed within 75 acres are walking trails, picnic sites, an immaculate rose garden, and a playground, spraypark, and petting zoo for the kids, all of which are surrounded by towering trees and lush greenery. The park is also home to several recreational facilities, including an arena (Home of the Salmonbellies Lacross team), soccer fields, baseball diamonds, and much more. Fraserview (located just North-East from Queen’s Park) is home to additional community parks, including the Glenbrook Ravine park and walking trails.
Queen’s Park is one of the most architecturally distinct neighbourhoods in the Lower Mainland. Many of the houses here are restored from original homes dating back to the 1900s – from smaller character homes to large stately mansions , make Queen’s Park among the most sought-after residential neighbourhoods in Metro Vancouver.
Fraserview is a tranquil neighborhood in eastern New Westminster that provides you with the luxury of living close to a major city center while still enjoying the intimacy of a small town feel. Within Fraserview, Victoria Hill is a master-planned community of condos, townhouses, and single family homes that overlook the Fraser River. This unique community has a heritage-style atmosphere blended with modern, high quality homes.
Six blocks west of Queen’s Park, fabulous shopping, dining, businesses, and nightlife awaits along 6th Street & 6th Avenue. Right at the intersection of 6th & 6th is the indoor Royal City Shopping Center, offering department stores, premium shops, restaurants, as well as medical and professional services. Fraserview and Queen’s Park are both close to Downtown New Westminster ; the cultural & historical core of the city , as well as the Quay along the Fraser River waterfront, a favourite summertime destination.
