History about Fraser Street and Kingsway
Fraser Street (Do you mean Kingsway?) has always played an important role in connecting the city together from its origins linking New Westminster, Burrard Inlet and the Fraser River. The Fraser River was an important source of food for aboriginals for generations. In 1875, Kingsway was established as a “wagon road” to connect the Fraser River to False Creek. By connecting the city, residents were able to access fresh fruits and dairy plants for their neighbors and families — building a richer community.

Fraser and Kingsway have always been a connectors for residents and businesses throughout Vancouver’s history. Join us in continuing this legacy in by meeting new residents, families and businesses in through our BFF Party at The Aviary.
