Southlands Neighbourhood Information


Blog by Emily Sandhack | October 15th, 2018


Southlands is a semi rural neighbourhood in Vancouver with seemingly as many horses as people. There are around 300 horses in a little bit more than 100 homes in the area. The neighbourhood is located south of South West Marine Drive and east of the UBC. It is a unique, country-like area within the large city of Vancouver.

Southlands is also a great location for filming because of its unique nature and proximity to the Greater Vancouver area. The area is often associated with Dunbar, which is just north of it.

There’s lots of space for horse riding next to the Fraser River making it a very sought after neighbourhood for those looking for equine properties. Runners and bikers also love to stroll along its scenic pathways.

Also in the neighbourhood is the Southlands Elementary School, right next to Pacific Spirit Regional Park. The school is located on a large plot of land where soccer games often take place during the weekends.
