Marpole

Marpole is a mostly residential community on the southern tip of Vancouver, it rests between the Fraser River (South) & 57th Ave. (North) and between Angus Dr. (West) & Ontario St. (East). It is the major transportation route that connects Vancouver to the southern suburbs and Vancouver International Airport via the Oak St. Bridge and the Arthur Lange Bridge respectively. A large industrial area is located along the banks of the Fraser River as well as a small shopping district to be found along Granville St.

Being a high volume traffic area has kept the housing and rental prices lower than the cities average, and therefore has a high percentage of seniors and students taking advantage of the low rental prices. There are also a number of senior citizen homes in the area. Buses run in every direction, linking Marpole with every community and suburb in the Greater Vancouver Area, which is convenient for the aforementioned students and seniors.

Marpole is believed to be dated back to 3500 B.C. Archeologists discovered two early village sites along the Fraser River, finding tools, weapons, and other artifacts in what experts believe was one of the largest village sites discovered in North America. More recently and pertaining to Vancouver's history, White Spot, Vancouver's most recognizable hamburger restaurants opened its first location in Marpole, in 1928. Also Vancouver's oldest community centre, the Marpole-Oakridge Community Centre was opened in 1949 and still offers a full recreational facility for the residents of Marpole.
