New Westminster – Sapperton:

Sapperton, Brunette, and The Heights all make up the north-eastern portion of New Westminster, and are home to the Brewery District, a modern development slated to become the newest city center. This historical site, previously home to the Sapperton Brewery that survived prohibition, later becoming Labatts Brewery, and is still home to the historic Royal Columbian Hospital. Sapperton is now a thriving district of shops, restaurants, and businesses. This area also caters to many cafes, pubs, and bars that await your discovery along East Columbia St.; the original main drag of this area.

Hume Park is your outdoor getaway in Sapperton. Situated on the northern edge of the neighborhood along the Brunette River, there is something for the entire family, including a spray park, picnic area, off-leash dog park, and sports fields. Hume Park is also an entry point for the Central Valley Greenway, a 25km walking trail that connects New Westminster, Burnaby, and Vancouver.

Neighborhoods consisting of single family detached homes surround the brewery district and Hume park, making for the perfect place to secure your starter home or plant roots for years to come. For university students and young professionals seeking a more urban lifestyle, new apartment style condos right in the heart of the Brewerydistrict keep you in the midst of the action, close to local businesses, as well as the Skytrain. A pedestrian skyway access to Sapperton Skytrain station will connect you to downtown Vancouver in only 30 minutes, and allows you to easily explore the rest of the lower mainland. The Braid station is next along the line, and services those living in the northern Sapperton neighborhoods.
