William Rowling, who was a surveyor in the British Army, was given a land grant for most of southern Killarney in order to develop the area, and once World War II had ended, development increased as people began to settle in Vancouver, and the need for housing rapidly grew.
Although Killarney does not have the same heritage as some of the earlier developed communities within Vancouver, a small selection of 1920s farmhouses still stand today, along with towering trees and abundant nature. As, previous to the war, a lot of farmland could be found here, providing food for the locals who were beginning to arrive in 1868.
In the 1990’s development began to burst onto the scene of Fraserlands – a community next to Killarney, and today offers plenty of townhomes and condos. With construction still underway, new developments continue to emerge with an aim to offer a sustainable community set apart from the city of Vancouver.
Made up mostly of single-family homes, Killarney is part of the Champlain Heights community, which runs north along the Fraser River onto East 41st Avenue and Kingsway, extending from Boundary Road, with Vivian Drive on the west.
Everett Crowley Park can be found within the walls of Killarney, along Kerr Street and Marine Drive. It was once home to a waterfall, but has since been used as landfill. Regardless, it is a beautiful and spacious park to enjoy.
