The community is bordered by Burrard Inlet to the north, West 16th Avenue to the south, Burrard Street to the east, and Alma Street to the west. For years, this popular neighbourhood was recognized as one of Vancouver’s hippest communities in the 1960s. Some compared it to San Francisco’s famed Haight-Ashbury. Both communities were the site of counterculture within the city. Today, Kitsilano is where many working professionals and young families have chosen to settle and enjoy a relaxed lifestyle close to some of Vancouver’s best attractions.
