Marpole is a community located on the southern edge of Vancouver, right before the township of Richmond


Marpole is a community located on the southern edge of Vancouver, right before the township of Richmond. Although it is mainly a residential neighbourhood, it offers many conveniences such as its close proximity to the airport, being located just northeast of YVR.

With around 30,000 residents living in the neighbourhood, it is a flourishing community that borders Angus Drive to the west, Ontario Street to the east, 57th Avenue to the north, and has the Fraser River running along its southern borders.

Over the past 10 years, Marpole has seen an uprising of condos and other compact and increasingly affordable dwelling places to it’s neighbouring communities, offering alternative real estate outside of the city in a more suburban setting.


Real estate and the communities within Westside Vancouver is know to be incredibly safe, and provides premium real estate buying options fitted with incredible views, accessible local dining gems, public, private and university educational institutions, and excellent shopping choices – all in close proximity to Downtown Vancouver, a quick gateway to Seattle, or a weekend retreat to Whistler.


Running along the corridors of Oak Street Bridge leading to Hwy 99, one can easily arrive at the US border for a day of shopping and exploring, or head for the beach in White Rock to dine or shell-shop, or fly off to some exotic destination via the Vancouver International Airport easily accessible from any Marpole home.

Many enjoy this neighbourhood for it’s convenient commute into the city, but also for it’s obscure city-edge living set ever so slightly away.


Born in Wales, Richard Marpole made his way over to the great city of Vancouver in 1920. He was the General Superintendent of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and directed the CPR interests of the Mission robbery investigation. Quite the scandal in its day!

At the time of his death, Richard was still hot on the pursuit of this robbery scandal via his private railway car in Kamloops. Although specifics to his death are hard to find, an interesting history to Marpole is given – way of Mr. Richard Marpole himself.

So whether you call Vancouver home and are looking for a local community fix, or are contemplating buying in Vancouver and wish to wander the districts that make up our fabulous city…ensure Marpole is one of your stops along the way. It’s a genuine gem, and well worth the stop!
