You'll love the village center, which offers a variety of shops, services, and restaurants. It's a great place to spend your weekends, running errands or grabbing a bite with friends and family.
One of the biggest draws to Edgemont is the natural beauty surrounding it. Grouse Mountain, known for its beautiful hiking trails and ski resort during winter, is a short drive away. And the Capilano River offers fantastic salmon fishing and great spots for picnics and swimming during the summer.

Edgemont Village is a great place to call home if you're looking for a combination of outdoor activities, community engagement and a charming, tight-knit neighborhood.
The residential neighbourhoods surrounding the village were mostly built in the 1940's through 1960's and contain many examples of mid-century 'west coast modernism' inspired by the Capilano River rainforest and the coastal mountains.
The Village feels like most mountain resort towns as it sits beneath Grouse Mountain. Edgemont Village is just minutes away from the Capilano Suspension Bridge and a perfect stop for lunch or dinner on your way to Grouse Mountain or the Salmon Hatchery. There are shops that specialize in the work of BC artisans, many fanciful cafes and plenty of great places for gift shopping. Storekeepers know the names of their customers, parents and children stroll the sidewalks and benches are spread throughout the village to have a rest and soak it all in.
From the butcher to the baker and everything in between the village is a one-stop shop for all the local residents. One of the newest and nicest children’s playgrounds in the area is Murdo Fraser Park which also features tennis courts, a duck pond and a trail that leads up to Edgemont Village.
