With City Hall located in the area and downtown just a few blocks away, Cambie Village is at the very heart of life in Vancouver. The area has changed with the construction of the new Canada Line Rapid Transit Line and the addition of major housing and retail sites at the south end of the Cambie Street Bridge.
At the same time, the area has a real community feel offering numerous neighbourhood restaurants, amenities and entertainment outlets. Its proximity to Vancouver General Hospital also makes it a hub for health-care services and practitioners.
There are 3 public elementary schools in the Cambie Village area; Edith Cavell Elementary, at 500 W. 20th Avenue, Emily Carr at King Edward & Oak St and Simon Fraser Elementary at 100 West 15th Ave. The nearest high schools are Sir Charles Tupper Secondary, at 419 E. 24th Avenue and Eric Hamber at Oak & 33rd Avenue. Several private schools and French language immersion schools are also nearby.
Cambie Village is located just north of one of the city’s largest parks, Queen Elizabeth Park and Nat Bailey Stadium. There are several other parks in close proximity, including Douglas Park and Heather Park. Douglas Park and Hillcrest Community Centre service the Cambie Village area.
With the recent addition of the Canada Line Rapid Transit, Cambie Village has become a key stop on the way from downtown Vancouver to the airport and Richmond Centre. Several bus routes also serve Cambie Village, and the Cambie Street Bridge provides direct access to downtown Vancouver which thousands of commuters pass through each day.
