Seymour - North Vancouver

Info: The Seymour/Riverside area is located to the West of the Second Narrows bridge allowing for quick commutes to Vancouver while offering some of the most unique real estate in North Vancouver – river front homes. Many of the homes in this neighbourhood border the Seymour River, making for a serene and private retreat. There are some condos, mostly wood frame and the Southern part of this neighbourhood is very industrial and where the North Shore Transfer Station and Recycling Drop off Depot call home. There is also a large Superstore grocery store that services the area. Maplewood Farm is the big attraction here! Home to horses, cows, sheep and more. This family friendly attraction is run by the District of North Vancouver.
