Covering the slopes beneath Grouse Mountain, and defined by thick stands of mature evergreens in the ravines containing the Capilano River, and Mackay and Mosquito Creeks, Upper Capilano commands the northwest corner of the District.
This area is known for its quiet windy roads and easy access to our network of forest trails, and it is home to several renowned tourist attractions, as well as the area’s commercial and community heart in Edgemont Village.
The Upper Capilano area is bounded to the south by the TransCanada Highway and to the east by the Delbrook/Upper Lonsdale community, and it includes the Grousewoods, Cleveland, Canyon Heights, Handsworth, Highlands and Edgemont neighbourhoods.
