Renfrew-Collingwood is primarily a residential area, with good access to nature. Renfrew Ravine Park, which features a natural creek in the Still Creek watershed, is a lovely place to take a walk. Residents have easy access to services and amenities, especially along the Collingwood stretch of Kingsway. Renfrew-Collingwood runs along the city's east boundary with Burnaby.

One community near Renfrew-Collingwood has a community plan underway:

Neighbourhood history and heritage

Prior to 1890, this area had a significant wildlife population, but only a handful of residents. Ducks, geese, cougars and black bears all made their homes near lakes that no longer exist; Moody Lake, where the SkyTrain line is today, and three smaller beaver-built lakes, where Grandview Highway now runs.


Initiatives in Renfrew-Collingwood

Joyce-Collingwood Station Precinct Review

The City is reviewing plans for the area around Joyce-Collingwood Station. TransLink is upgrading the station and bus exchange, so the review will help prepare for potential impacts to the road network, access, and development.


We have completed redevelopment of the parks, providing easier access to the habitat of Renfrew Ravine and Still Creek.
