Cambie has recently been the lucky recipient of the underground Canada Line Sky Train, and it is now spilling over into a revitalized area, with a nice little facelift. There are 3 stations along Cambie St. at King Edward, 33rd ave, and 41st ave.
From 2005-2009, Cambie has been a construction zone, with many of its commercial and retail contingents losing their shirts. That is all changing now though.
It is a quaint neighbourhood of charming homes, small shops and many of the city’s healthcare facilities including BC Children’s Hospital and BC Women’s Hospital.
Its boundries are from W.16th ave to W.41st ave (North and South boundries) and from Ontario St. to Oak St. (East and West boundries). It’s a total of nearly 225 square blocks. While the size of Cambie might be large, it’s population is not. It is mainly single family homes and currently one of the most popular “move up” places for growing families that want to stay close to the city.
There are 3 elementary schools within its boundries, Edith Cavell Elementary, General Wolfe, and Emily Carr Elementary. Eric Hamber Secondary School is the High School within the Cambie boundaries. There are 5 wonderful parks in Cambie as well: Douglas Park, Heather Park, Braemer Park, Oak Meadows Park, and the piece de resistance in one of Vancouver’s largest parks, Queen Elizabeth Park.
Some of the main attractions of Cambie are the Bloedel Conservatory in QE Park, Nat Bailey Stadium (Vancouver Canadians Baseball), the Vancouver Curling Club, and the Douglas Park Community Centre.
