Parks & Recreation
Like many cities in the Pacific Northwest, Vancouver is a very green city and is home to dozens of urban and suburban parks. In downtown Vancouver, the recently revitalized Esther Short park holds activities year round including the Vancouver Farmers Market. To the east, the 312 acre Lacamas lake park is said to be a fisherman's paradise.
The style of real estate in Vancouver ranges from modern urban chic to rural Northwest Craftsman and Bungalow, with plenty of condos, townhomes, and the occassional waterront estate mixed in.
