ARBUTUS VANCOUVER WEST, BC

In its natural state, Arbutus Ridge consisted of uplands surrounding a low-lying marsh known as Asthma Flats. The original inhabitants fished the local streams, although there is no record of settlement. In 1888, the Province turned over 2,100 hectares (5,189 acres) of land in the area to the CPR. Included in this holding was a large portion of what is now the Arbutus Ridge community. Over the years Arbutus Ridge has been part of three municipalities: South Vancouver until 1908; then Point Grey and finally Vancouver in 1929. The crossroads of East/West Boulevard and Wilson Avenue (now 41st Avenue) were the hub of local political activity in those early years.

The community's uplands area (known to residents as Mackenzie Heights) was first to see residential settlement. These uplands, which filled with gracious middle-class homes between 1912 and the 1930s, became identified with the adjacent communities of Dunbar and Kerrisdale. The B.C. Electric's interurban railway line, which connected Steveston with Vancouver in 1905, passed through the Kerrisdale area (with stops at 37th/ East Boulevard and 41st/East Boulevard) acted as a trigger for early development. The railway was replaced with trolley buses in July 1952.

During the 1940s and 1950s sand was brought in from False Creek and the low areas filled in with houses, schools and shops. in the late 1960s a major development occurred within the community when Arbutus Village, a housing and shopping complex was constructed. (source: Vancouver)

ARBUTUS:

Arbutus Ridge is a quiet affluent neighborhood located between 16th Avenue (North) & 41st Avenue (South) and between Mackenzie Street (West) & East Boulevard (East). Arbutus Ridge is populated mainly by professionals, business people, doctors, and professors from the nearby University of British Columbia, so the average age of the residents is a bit higher than the more trendy areas such as Yaletown, Commercial Drive, and Kitsilano.

The main reason attributed to the growth of Arbutus Ridge was the implementation in 1905 of a streetcar line that ran from Vancouver to Steveston, which was run by the B.C. Electric Railway. Before this line was introduced the area was mainly unreachable and therefore unlivable. This area is home to one of Vancouver's oldest churches, built in 1913, St. Mary's Kerrisdale, is an Anglican church which has been given Heritage Status by the City of Vancouver.

Arbutus Ridge is a mature community with tree-lined streets, restored heritage houses, quiet neighbourhood parks, and striking views of the North Shore mountains. Arbutus Ridge is in the middle of Vancouver's west side, and so has good access to Downtown, the University of British Columbia, Pacific Spirit Regional Park, Kitsilano, and Jericho Beach, as well as to local shopping.

One of the catalysts for growth in the neighbourhood was the existence of the Vancouver-Steveston Interurban route of the British Columbia ElectricRead More...
