LITTLE MOUNTAIN VANCOUVER WEST, BC

Vancouver-Little Mountain was a provincial electoral district in the Canadian province of British Columbia. It first appeared on the hustings in the general election of 1966 as a two-member seat. It returned two members from 1966 to 1986 and one member thereafter. (source: wikipedia)

In the 1920s, one of the rock quarries was converted into the city's water reservoir. In 1940, Little Mountain became Queen Elizabeth Park and the water reservoir was covered to serve as the park's parking lot. Another of the open pit rock quarries was transformed into a beautiful sunken garden, now a tourist attraction and a favourite site for summer wedding photographs.

This neighbourhood has roots in Vancouver's baseball history. The Vancouver Capilanos baseball team opened Capilano Stadium (now Nat Bailey Stadium) at the foot of Little Mountain in 1952. Vancouver was a member of the Northwestern League starting in 1907 and has had various professional teams over the years.

LITTLE MOUNTAIN:

Riley Park–Little Mountain is a neighbourhood in Vancouver, British Columbia. It is home to the Vancouver Olympic/Paralympic Centre and to Nat Bailey Stadium—home of the Vancouver Canadians baseball team. Riley Park (formerly Little Mountain) is the area of Vancouver that runs from 16th to 41st avenues and from Fraser to Cambie streets. (source: littlemountaincohousing.ca) Little Mountain is part of an extinct volcano. (source: vancovuer.ca)

It is home to an active and engaged community of neighbours who work tirelessly to improve their own little swath of Vancouver. By the early 1900s, a scattered community began to thrive on upper Main Street. Its residents were primarily Little Mountain quarry workers, who mined volcanic rock for use surfacing the area's first roads. (source: vancouver.ca)
