When it comes to looking for a place to start family life, sometimes it is a good idea to introduce your clients to areas outside of the downtown core.
But just because your clients are leaving the city, it doesn’t mean that they have to give up the city lifestyle they had before. With the expanded transit routes between the downtown core and better entertainment arriving in the suburbs, check out these four Metro Vancouver cities to introduce your clients to:
If your client loves the city and is a little reluctant to leave it behind, perhaps they should consider Surrey! Surrey currently has the second largest population in the province behind Vancouver. By 2030, it is expected that that population will surpass that of Vancouver’s, making it the largest city by population in the province. With thriving city centers that are complete with recreation centers, libraries, and a good mix of green space and entertainment, Surrey is a great place for families at all stages of life.
Found across the bridge from Surrey, New Westminster is an old city with plenty of character. Affectionately named the Royal City, New Westminster is the oldest city in Western Canada and is slowly becoming a revitalized city by the Fraser River. You can find plenty of restaurants along Columbia Street, enjoy a day with the kids at Westminster Pier Park and have easy access to downtown via SkyTrain.
Coquitlam has become a rapidly growing city that also is home to plenty of green space and great recreational facilities for families with young children to spend the day at. If your client is a family who is into culture, music and art, there are also a number of festivals throughout the year for children of all ages to enjoy.
Sandwiched between mountains and water, North Vancouver is a beautiful city that is a breath of fresh air while still keeping close ties to Vancouver proper. Hit the slopes with your family in the winter and go hiking in the summer. Perfect for families who are looking for a place that is a little quieter to raise their family.
