- Established residential area
- Primarily single family, larger lots
- Hospital, Leisure and Recreation facilities
Residents of the Downtown Westside describe their neighbourhood as ” convenient to absolutely everything”. Still just a short drive or for some even a relatively short walk to the downtown shopping areas, this choice residential area was developed primarily in the 60′s and 70′s.
Home choices include some real classic full basement rancher, bi-level and custom built split level homes, mostly on larger lots and many with mature trees and landscaping.
At its centre is Chilliwack’s main amenities complex and residents here enjoy easy walking access to the Prospera Centre, The Landing Leisure Centre, Townsend Park, Exhibition Stadium and the soon to be completed new Arts and Cultural Centre.
On the eastern side is the Chilliwack Hospital and adjacent to it a newly developed area offering upscale condos and townhomes. To the west, Rainbow Estates, a popular modular home park for senior residents and two older but nicely updated townhouse complexes offering affordable family housing options.
Commutors travelling west from this neighbourhood can avoid in town traffic by taking Wolfe Rd and Chilliack Mtn Rd to the Lickman Rd interchange.
