Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, Canada
Welcome to the best kept secret in the Lower Mainland! Pitt Meadows is a family oriented town located just 35 minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver. The history dates back to the early 1900s with many of the original structures still standing; such as the Pitt Meadows Museum, Hoffman & Son, Pitt Meadows Community Church, and the McMyn/Masson Residence which now houses Akasaka, a popular Japanese restaurant. Real estate is booming in the small community and there is a beautiful reason why. While the main strip of Harris Road does provide a great deal of beauty, the real scenic spots begin when you head north of Lougheed and south of Hammond. Surrounded by water and mountains, Pitt Meadows truly lives up to the slogan, “The Natural Place.” Whether you go for a long walk on one of the many dykes, or you find yourself kayaking up the Allouette River – you’ll without a doubt be able to find complete relaxation. A relatively new development at the south end of the city has provided residents with an entirely new way of living. Osprey Village is an outdoor shopping district along the shores of the Fraser River. A vast amount of residential dwellings designed in a Georgian-style of architecture surround the quaint village which features a booming coffee shop, doggie daycare, flower shop, and delicious ice cream parlour to name a few. We’ve spent several days photographing this one-of-a-kind farming community to showcase how lovely it really is. Scroll down to see what we’ve uncovered.
