This is Kitsilano


This is


Just over the Burrard Bridge from the downtown peninsula, Kitsilano is one of the city’s most desirable older neighbourhoods. Known to the locals simply as “Kits,” it’s home to Kitsilano Beach, the city’s largest outdoor pool, and Vanier Park attractions including Vancouver Museum and the Vancouver Maritime Museum.

Shoppers should make sure to hit West 4th Avenue for browsable shops and popular eateries, as well as West Broadway’s popular retail strip.

A former 1960s hippy hangout transformed into a neighborhood of pricey heritage homes, “Kits” has a comfy, laid-back feel and a selection of stores and restaurants aimed at well-off urban professionals.

Today, Kitsilano still has plenty of culture, but its apartments and houses are now occupied by young urban professionals and families who enjoy a modern version of that relaxed atmosphere – this is the birthplace of global yoga brand, lululemon athletica. The neighbourhood brings together a collection of attractions, beach and parks, residential streets, and a couple of main commercial districts.

Kits is bordered by the waterfront to the north and West 16th Ave to the south; Burrard Street to the east and Alma Street to the west. Most of the commercial activity is along West 4th Avenue and West Broadway, but you’ll also find shops and restaurants in the areas close to the beach. ‍
Historically only reached by boat via False Creek, across a trestle bridge, and through a meandering forest trail, Kits Beach was originally known as Greer’s Beach.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
