The Cambie neighbourhood spans East-West from Oak Street to Ontario St (the diving line between West and East Vancouver), and North-South from 41st Avenue to 16th Avenue. It contains the stunning Queen Elizabeth Park, Hillcrest Park (home to Nat Bailey Stadium - home of the Vancouver Canadians baseball team) and Douglas Park. With excellent schools and superb park facilities, plus the addition of the Canada Line skytrain route, the Cambie neighbourhood is very populer with young families.
Without a doubt, the parks are what make the neighbourhood here. Queen Elizabeth Park is one the attractions of Vancouver, with its breath-taking city views, the Bloedel Floral Conservatory, the Arboretum, Quarry Gardens, the Dancing Fountain, fine dining, executive golf course, tennis courts and more. Nearby Hillcrest Park houses Nat Bailey Stadium, home to the Vancouver Canadians baseball team, as well as the nearby Olympic Curling Rink. The smaller, but frequently used, Douglas Park houses the community centre as well as a variety of sports fields.
The nearby VanDusen Gardens is also work a look. This spectacular garden in the heart of Vancouver has matured into a botanical garden of international stature since opening to the public in 1975. The mild Vancouver climate allows the cultivation of an outstanding plant collection which is a delight any time of the year. There are over 7,500 different kinds of plants assembled from six continents.
