Sunset

Sunset is an ethnically diverse, working-class area filled with single family homes, low-rise apartments, and small retail shops. The area is an Indo-Canadian hub in Vancouver. Both Main Street and Fraser Street are vibrant shopping areas lined with many independently owned stores and restaurants. Sunset is in south-central Vancouver, east of Langara Golf Course, and slopes from the Mountain View cemetery down to the Fraser River.

One community near Sunset has a community plan underway:
