From the middle of nowhere to the centre of everything — North Van’s Marine Drive still connects Lower Lonsdale and West Vancouver, but now it’s also an ideal destination.
At seven35, you’re nestled deep in the natural surroundings of the North Shore yet still surrounded by a variety of shops, restaurants and services. Planning a summer BBQ on your rooftop lanai? Thrifty Foods and Price Smart are just across the street and you can pick up some fresh fruit and veggies at Kin’s Market.
If you are in the mood to dine out, catch the hockey game at Hurricane Grill or sample some local brews at Taylor’s Crossing Restaurant and Brewpub. Ethical Kitchen has a variety of local meats and dairy products to eat onsite or take home to your ultra gourmet kitchen.
If you are decorating your home with your own personal touch, check out the modern home furnishings at nood, one-of-a kind pieces at Santa Barbara Mexican Furniture and great outdoor furnishings at Ginger Jar. Also, don’t forget the home comforts of Bed Bath & Beyond.
This being the North Shore, seven35 is also surrounded by the best in West Coast nature. Right next door, Mosquito Creek Park has a children’s play area at the south end with a trail following the creek north to the Baden Powell Trail. The trail is off-leash, so you can take man’s (or woman’s!) best friend along for a hike.
If you want to stop for a different kind of R&R, the trail passes by the William Griffin rec centre and the quaint Edgemont Village. Mosquito Creek Park also links up with Heywood Park, along Mackay Creek a few blocks west, Mahon Park to the east and King’s Mill Walk on Burrard Inlet to the south.
A part of the future North Shore Spirit Trail, King’s Mill Walk has nearly 1.5 kilometres of waterfront paths meandering through landscaped grounds (look way up to see the fanciful birdhouses perched on high posts).
Welcome to North Van. Welcome home.
