There is a pool, weight room and pool table & lounge for use by the residents.

The area located to the South of Pemberton Heights features some 33 foot lots and larger lots with ranchers and some character homes. Prices in the Pemberton area are some of the most affordable in North Vancouver and a good place for first time home buyers looking to call the North Shore home.

This is also an area where many visitors will stay in North Vancouver. There are 5 motels located within steps of each other, the Travelodge, Grouse Inn, North Vancouver Hotel, Comfort Inn & Suites and Best Western Capilano Inn.


The Bowser Trail

The Bowser Trail is a short walking trail in North Vancouver that winds through Lower Capilano. It’s surrounded by the busiest streets in the area. At one end it starts/ends behind Save-On Foods, at the other it joins Capilano Regional Park near the Capilano River. It’s a local entrance to the unbelieveable trail running the North Shore of Vancouver has to offer and a short link-up for a few of the urban trail routes in the area.


Earls Tin Palace

Earls Tin Palace is technically located just outside of the Pemberton area in West Vancouver, but most locals refer to its location as North Vancouver as it lies on the Eastern side of the Lions Gate Bridge.

A local favourite with delicious food, great drinks, and a fun atmosphere whether you are out with the family or friends watching the game in the lounge. Their patio is packed on Summer evenings.

This is one of Earl’s “test kitchens” so if you are looking for something new from Earls, this is the place you will get to try it!
