If you’re thinking of moving to North Vancouver and you’re not sure which area or neighbourhood is right for you, in this video I’m going to reveal the best neighbourhoods to live in North Vancouver. So, let’s get into it.

Hey, everyone, I’m Craig Veroni with RE/MAX Masters Realty. I’m your local real estate agent here in Vancouver, BC. North Vancouver is an incredibly sought-after place to live. It’s where I live. I shoot a ton of videos about what it’s like to live, love, and own here in Vancouver.

North Vancouver has been my home for the past 15 years. It’s an amazing place to live and work. It is home to the City of North Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver and is divided into 35 sub-areas.

This is an update to the video I filmed in 2019 about the top 5 neighbourhoods in North Vancouver and it goes without saying that a lot has happened here in the past few years. So, let’s kick things off with a neighbourhood that is very special to me.

Deep Cove will always have a special place in my heart as this is the first place my family stayed when we came to BC. This charming seaside community will capture your heart as well. Nestled on the Burrard Inlet, this little community offers the outdoorsy person so much. Some of my favourite things here are the Deep Cove Kayak Centre, The Quarry Rock Hike, Honey’s Doughnuts, The Raven Pub, Cafe Orso, and, of course, the Arms Reach Bistro. If you love beaches, trails, and parks, Deep Cove is the place for you. This little community is home to 5 parks. Panorama Park, Deep Cove Park, Cove Cliff Park, Wickenden Park, and Myrtle Park and you can access the Baden Powell Trail here. Schools in this neighbourhood are Cove Cliff Elementary and Seycove Secondary.

Right next door to Deep Cove are the communities of Roche Point and Dollarton. These neighbourhoods have terrific single-family homes, many of which have lovely views of the Burrard Inlet. All your basic needs can be found at the Dollarton Village Shopping Mall. If you love golf, the Seymour Golf and Country Club, and the Northlands Golf Course are just around the corner and make sure to take in Roche Point Park and Cates Park. Sherwood Park Elementary is the school in this neighbourhood. And, if you want easy access to skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, or tobogganing, the Deep Cove, Roche Point, and Dollarton neighbourhoods are all within easy access to Mount Seymour.

Lynn Valley has undergone a massive change in the last few years. The Lynn Valley Centre has been completely revitalized with the addition of the Residences at Lynn Valley by Bosa Developments, Lynn valley’s 1st master-planned community. Lynn Valley has an amazing natural setting and strong community spirit. It’s the kind of community where you know many of your neighbours and at its heart is the Lynn Valley Centre. It is also home to the iconic Lynn Canyon Suspension bridge. This is the free alternative to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. The Black Bear Pub, an institution here in Lynn Valley and the Suspension bridge were both on my 30 favourite places in North Vancouver video series. A few amenities include easy access to the Karen Magnussen Community Centre and Kirkstone Park. Some of the schools in this area are Ross Road Elementary, Brockton School, Vancouver Waldorf School, and Argyle Secondary.

The Boulevard and Queensbury neighbourhoods are two more fantastic places to live. Just stroll down part of the Green Necklace along Grand Boulevard and you’ll see what I mean. You have easy access to the Upper Levels Highway and the rest of the North Shore from here. Schools in this area are Queensbury Elementary, Ridgeway Elementary, and Sutherland Secondary. And, you have all the charming shops on Queensbury Ave, between Keith Road and 6th Street. One of the biggest transformations in the area over the past few years is the Moodyville area and Moodyville Park. There are lots of condo and townhouse options that have recently been built in this neighbourhood such as Green On Queensbury, Morrison On The Park, and Neu On 3rd.

Incredible restaurants, breweries and other amenities make this a hot and sought-after spot to live and almost half a dozen locations on my 30 favourite places in North Vancouver video series were here in Lower Lonsdale. This neighbourhood just keeps getting hipper, more vibrant, and more beautiful. There are detached, condo and townhome living options with stunning views of the water and the City of Vancouver. The Shipyards, which opened in 2019 as a smashing success, is a major draw for locals as well as tourists and will be getting a 1.7 million dollar jushing very soon. The provincial Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport announced on Feb. 4th $1 million in grant funding aimed at adding amenities and making the public destination more functional and appealing during otherwise quiet times of the year. Lonsdale Quay, which sits right next to the Shipyards, is also a magnet for tourists staying in downtown Vancouver who not only want to experience the Seabus ride but to explore the Lower Lonsdale area as well.

Central Lonsdale is my hood. I live here and can tell you this is a fantastic neighbourhood to live in. It is growing and changing rapidly with incredible new buildings like Millennium. It is home to things like Victoria Park and the Cenotaph which is an important landmark and green space for North Shore residents. You can also now enjoy an alcoholic beverage with your friends and family in Victoria Park and many others in North Van. Other services and amenities in the neighbourhood include Whole Foods, Qubecore Sports and Rehab, Lionsgate Hospital, Centennial Theatre, Mahon Park and of course the Green Necklace. The green Necklace is an urban greenway forming a 7.5km scenic loop around the City centre. It links historic parks and buildings, public spaces and commercial areas.

For couples and families looking for higher-end, luxury home options and who want to live in the catchment area for the Canyon Heights Elementary and Handsworth Secondary schools, look no further than the sought-after neighbourhood of Canyon Heights. It is located just below Grouse Woods and Grouse Mountain and is home to the Capilano River Regional Park, Capilano Salmon Hatchery, and of course, the famous Capilano Suspension Bridge. Serene neighbourhoods nestled amongst the forest with access to many hiking trails make this a family-friendly and highly desirable place to live. The Handsworth Secondary School is being completely rebuilt and is projected to be completed later this year.

EDGEMONT: Edgemont Village has exploded with growth since I last filmed this neighbourhood. New additions include Thrifty Foods, Bufala Edgemont, and Cantina Norte. Edgemont Village is the most sought-after area in North Vancouver for those families looking for luxury home options and offers residents a small-town charm and quaintness. Another 3 of my 30 favourite places can be found here as well. They are Bjorn Bar bakery, La Galleria Fine Foods, and, the Delbrook Community Centre. A stunning new facility offering everything from swimming to squash. If you’d rather live in North Vancouver than West Vancouver and you want a luxury home, check out Edgemont.
