Where is it?
When you think of Greater Vancouver, think mountains and forests. We live in the suburbs of Vancouver in a city called Coquitlam. We are on the side of a mountain with stunning views from our front windows. The neighborhood is all single family homes with a tot lot nearby. We are in a stately Coquitlam mountainside neighborhood near Riverview forest and next to it Mundy Park. Coquitlam is a suburb of Greater Vancouver and we are close to skytrain for access to downtown Vancouver in 35 minutes. Or go up to Squamish for rock climbing in 1 hour or Whistler Village and Ski Resort in 2 hours.
Vancouverites are pretty outdoorsy centered and into Pacific Rim cultures, first nations cultures and a laid back west coast energy. The town of Hope which is 2 hours from us is the entrance into the mountains.
So, we walk a lot in our neighborhood forests, hike in the Burke Mountain area (20 minutes away) and walk a tiny portion of the mighty Fraser River. (10 minutes away).
We do our daily shopping for food at the full service Save-On Foods to which we walk to through our urban forest or drive. We have a lot of culturally diverse restaurants on Austin Avenue which include Turkish, Korean, Vietnamese, Russian, Italian, Japanese, Greek, Thai and others too numerous to list. And of course several Persian bakeries that we frequent for eclairs and so forth.
