Vancouver History

Introduction


Kitsilano Beach, photograph by Robert Werner

Main Street has long been considered the rough dividing line between the eastern and western part of Vancouver.  Westside Vancouver neighbourhoods include Fairview, Marpole, Kitsilano, West Point Grey, Dunbar, Kerrisdale and Shaughnessy. The University of British Columbia, the Musqueam Reserve and Pacific Spirit Park are not administratively part of the Ciy of Vancouver, but occupy the same peninsula adjacent to the westside of Vancouver.
