The house is located 2 blocks from Trout Lake and John Hendry Park, home to the popular Trout Lake Farmer's Market :
Trout Lake, as well as having a great little lifeguarded beach and concession, has a new fully equipped community center, two great playgrounds, and regular activities like live music, ethnic festivals, festival of lights, and local fire swingers / jugglers .
The heart of Commercial Drive, a street well known for it's variety of ethnic cuisine, shopping opportunities, and people watching, is 3 blocks West and a short walk north.
There is a skytrain station within a 10 minutes walk from the house that opens access to Vancouver's vast public transit system, which will take you downtown in 12 minutes, and virtually anywhere in the lower mainland that you want to go. It is an eight minute car ride to get downtown, and an 8 minute car ride to get onto Highway #1 which will take you straight to the North Shore, leading to Squamish and Whistler.
The location is great for being tucked into a quiet little neighbourhood, but only minutes to access all Vancouver and surrounding areas have to offer.
