The City of New Westminster is situated in the center of the Greater Vancouver Regional District, otherwise referred to as the Lower Mainland. The City, roughly 15 square kilometers in area, is attractively located on a hillside overlooking the Fraser River, 20 kilometers east of Vancouver.
The City Center slopes down from Royal Avenue to the Waterfront, offering excellent views up-river to the Golden Ears Mountains, southeast to Mount Baker and down river towards Richmond and Delta and the Straight of Georgia. The Downtown section of New Westminster with its sloping streets, waterfront views and heritage buildings is reminiscent of San Francisco.
New Westminster has become the Lower Mainland’s fastest growing community for good reason. It places you conveniently at the centre of the Lower Mainland, and you can be downtown in just minutes by car or SkyTrain.
