About New Westminster – Queensborough:
Queensborough, located at the eastern tip of Lulu island on the Fraser River, has been the focus for much of New Westminster’s residential development in recent years. Newly-constructed condos, townhouses, and single family homes make for great starter homes or the perfect place to set down roots for many years to come. The addition of schools such as Queen Elizabeth Elementary and Queensborough Middle School, as well as the Queensborough Recreational Centre, Port Royal Park with a community garden and waterfront walking trail continue to increase the area’s appeal as a complete and nurturing community.
The small-town atmosphere is bolstered by the shops along Ewen Avenue, for a more extensive shopping experience, residents in this area can capitalize on their proximity to Queensborough Landing, an open-air shopping center featuring outlets, box stores, and restaurants. Nearby Starlight Casino allows locals to indulge in pubs, fine dining, and live entertainment all in one place and not far from home.
Heading north on highway 91A allows you to discover the rest of New Westminster, while a south-east heading takes you into Surrey. Going west leads into Richmond and turns into the East-West Connector, for an easy commute into Vancouver. Transit is also easily accessible, with the 22nd Street Skytrain station just north of the Fraser River.
