Visitors may know the Heights by the sight of vibrant shops and services lining Hastings Street, but there’s so much more to this thriving neighbourhood than meets the eye.
The true charm of Burnaby Heights lies in the dedication of the community to keep its small-town feel, while still growing to meet the needs of the people who live, work and visit here.
With a history of over 100 years, the commercial area now flourishes with a unique range of independent businesses, along with well-loved franchises. But the residents and business owners work in tandem to preserve the welcoming local feel of the neighbourhood.
Charming and walkable, visitors can enjoy a diverse range of shops and services, or head towards the parks, trails and amenities that are tucked just behind the main street. The business owners are friendly and approachable, always ready to serve with a smile or to recommend a nearby park for a stroll between errands.
With so many choices of restaurants, shops, cafes, parks and services in the Heights, it can be tough to find a place to start exploring. That’s why the Burnaby Now has created The Heights Spotlight—to guide you through this thriving neighbourhood.
