There is an abundance of coffee shops, restaurants, banks, and business services in the immediate Uptown area.
Queens Park West is a short walk from the infamous Queens Park and Canada Games Pool.

Both are a great way to unwind on a break or after work. The New Westminster library is also only two blocks to the west on Sixth Avenue for the avid reader.
