An emerging neighbourhood with a distinctive style.
What Our Neighbourhood Looks Like
Bounded by three high volume traffic routes, this neighbourhood is able to maintain a pleasantly mature feeling complete with tree-lined streets, grassy boulevards and a variety of housing styles and sizes.
The neighbourhood is served by the commercial centre at the intersection of Hillside Avenue and Quadra Street known as Quadra Village. Quadra Village provides a mix of retail, service and small office facilities. This centre reveals its multi-cultural nature of the community with Caribbean, Dutch, Indian, Greek and Filipino food stores.
The Quadra Village Community Centre also provides a focal point for many of the neighbourhood's different cultures and the greater community. The community also has other features including designated heritage homes and the Roxy Theatre; one the City's best-known independent movie houses.
Hillside-Quadra residents enjoy 43 acres of parkland, including Summit Park which protects a rare Garry oak environment. View park amenities.
