The Olympic Village is undoubtedly one of the most exciting and vibrant neighbourhoods in the City of Vancouver. Parked along the the seawall it provides it’s residents with beautiful views, quick access to Downtown and a variety of options for Food & Entertainment.
The Olympic Village was completed in 2010 and over the past decade has continued to improve in terms of desirability and community. What began as a cluster of buildings to serve as housing for Olympic athletes has now grown into a little City with a mix of boutique buildings to larger towers spanning from Quebec to Crowe Street.
Here are the top 5 reasons why you should live at The Olympic Village:
1. False Creek – There are so many options for play including dragonboating, paddle boarding, sailing and kayaking. If you just feel like exploring grab an Aquabus and adventure from The Village to Yaletown and then over to Granville Island and feast on some delicious treats.
2. The Seawall – The Seawall is always buzzing with a ton of people relaxing, biking, running and walking. The seawall loops around the City so you can head West towards Kits Beach or East and make your way to the West End and Stanley Park. Spend the day biking the City and finishing up at Craft Beer Market for a drink!
3. Food + Entertainment – The Olympic Village and Mount Pleasant are buzzing with some of the best restaurants & craft breweries in town. Head over to East 3rd and grab a pint at R&B Brewing or stop by Nook on West 2nd Avenue for some of the best pizza in town! The options for amazing food and drink are endless.
