This is considered Vancouver’s vibrant downtown, following Beach Avenue the West End is bordered by downtown on the one side, Stanley Park on the other and by water on both. The West End is home to a mixed population, old and young, Canadians, immigrants and international transient residents. Like other downtown neighbourhoods, the West End is very densely populated. It is adjacent to the downtown core business and financial districts, with traffic calmed streets producing concrete islands, sidewalk barricades, and mini-parks and many residential heritage buildings including The Manhattan, The Beaconsfield, The Beverly and The Queen Charlotte. King George Secondary school of the West End celebrated 100 years in 2014. Pooh Corner day care centre also calls the West End home, for many tikes, exploring Stanley Park everyday sounds pretty magical to me.
