Parkside Neighborhood Real Estate
Encompassing more than 200 acres, the east Vancouver Parkside neighborhood is one of the largest residential areas in the metro area. Parkside is primarily residential, but does have a small, well appointed commercial district at the southwest corner of the neighborhood in addition to a church, several local parks and a quiet, rural atmosphere.
Many of the older homes in the Parkside neighborhood have been updated to reflect the changing nature of this desirable area. New construction typically follows strict energy efficient building standards and has been planned to complement Parkside’s traditional feel. The percentage of mature tree canopy cover in this area is well above the city’s national average, contributing to the overall beauty and livability of this attractive neighborhood.
Students attend Burton Elementary, Cascade Junior High, Evergreen High or Heritage High School, and enjoy immediate access to the considerable amenities of Diamond Park. At just over 5 acres, Diamond Park features new play equipment, picnic areas, benches and expanses of open lawn for neighborhood gatherings and outdoor entertainment. The largely wooded Orchards Park West overlaps a portion of the neighborhood and is currently being developed to include a children’s playground, walking paths and picnic areas.
