Just outside the Nook's door is the Central Valley Greenway, a 24km pedestrian walkway and cycling path that leads from science world, and the downtown sea wall, all the way to New Westminister. And only 3 blocks away from the Nook is John Hendry Park, where you can take a walk around a natural lake, lie on the beach, or if you prefer indoor activity, take advantage of the amazing fitness facilities at the brand new Trout Lake Community Center. During the summer months, sample some of the local organic produce of the Trout Lake Farmers Market, then head over to 'The Drive'

One could spend a lifetime getting to know the best spots on and off 'The Drive,' with its abundance of unique cafes, restaurants, boutiques, and parks. And, because The Nook is only 2 blocks away, you'll always be close to your cottage retreat, to recharge, and do it all over again.

Also 2 blocks away from The Nook's quiet corner is the Commercial Skytrain Station, a hub, where you can catch a high speed train and be in bustling downtown Vancouver, or New Westminister if you like, in minutes. Vancouver, and its greater metro area, have so much to offer that the list we take up this whole page.
