Killarney

Killarney is a working class community in the southeast corner of Vancouver, situated between E.41st Ave. (North) & the Fraser River (South) and between Vivian St. (West) & Boundary Rd. (East). This one time rural community was the last section of Vancouver to be developed (1950) and since that time has seen considerable growth, continuing to this day. Although this area continues its growth, many of the green spaces reflective of its rural beginnings still remain and provide interesting contrasts to the new residential developments. Housing in Killarney consists of single family homes and townhouses, as well as high rise apartments along the Fraser River.

Killarney is made up of two separate neighborhoods, Champlain Heights and Fraser Lands. Champlain Heights is the older of the two and has the majority of the areas houses, parks, and schools. Killarney Park in Champlain Heights is home to the local high school, community centre, and swimming pool, which is built on a reclaimed bog. Also Vancouver's first ever co-op (cooperative housing) named DeCosmos Village was built in the area in 1970. Fraser Lands, a relatively newer neighborhood built along the Fraser River is home to many high rise apartment buildings, and river side parks. Fraser Lands is going through a construction boom and new condominiums and high rises are continuously being built.
