Around Ellesmere Avenue and North Burnaby
Ellesmere Avenue is situated right off of the bustling Hastings Street, one of the key corridors of the Metro Vancouver region. Heading west on Hastings will take you right into the thick of Downtown Vancouver, while east will take you down the Barnet HIghway to Port Moody. But there is so much more around Ellesmere Avenue that you won’t even need to worry about leaving the area. North Burnaby is one of the older areas of the city, as historically is home to a large Italian-Canadian population. With this is mind, there are many options for pasta, bakeries, and delis. Anton’s Pasta Bar is by far the most famous one, but be sure not to miss La Villetta, or Stan’s Pizza Joint.
The North Burnaby/Burnaby Heights area is very family oriented. 371 Ellesmere is one block away from Capitol Hill Elementary School (French-Immersion programs offered), and is also within close proximity to Burnaby North Secondary. The land that BNSS sits on comprises Kensington Park, which offers an indoor ice rink, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, an outdoor 25-yard pool (seasonal), and an 18-hole pitch and putt course to work on your short game. Also close to the apartment complex is Kensington Plaza, and Simon Fraser University.
