Kensington-Cedar Cottage

Kensington

Kensington-Cedar Cottage has a wide social and demographic mix, with an impressive range of ethnic groups who contribute richly to Vancouver's cultural diversity. This area also has a thriving colony of artists, many in residential live/work studios. Kensington-Cedar Cottage lies in the centre of east Vancouver, with scenic views from the top of the city's east-west ridge, and running down to beautiful Trout Lake, an urban lake and park.

The northern part of Kensington-Cedar Cottage is included in the community plan underway for:

Neighourhood history and heritage

Kensington-Cedar Cottage combines two historic neighbourhoods: Cedar Cottage, located north of Kingsway to Broadway, between Clark and Knight Streets and Nanaimo Street; and Kensington, located south of Kingsway to 41st Avenue, between Fraser and Nanaimo Streets.
