Established in the early 1900s, Kerrisdale is a predominantly residential neighbourhood with many long-time residents. Its streets are lined with sweeping, grand old trees. Kerrisdale Village is the main commercial area with a butcher, bakeries, boutiques, cafés, tea houses, and eclectic restaurants. With 5656 Balaclava located on a frequent service transit route, it is convenient to access Kerrisdale businesses and community amenities, such as the Kerrisdale Seniors Centre, Kerrisdale Community Centre, arena, pool, and public library. When its redevelopment is completed in 2024, nearby Oakridge Centre will also be a popular destination with 1 million sq ft of shopping and dining, a new seniors centre, 10 acres of new urban parks, and a 3,000-seat music venue. Golfers can choose between Point Grey Golf & Country Club and McCleery Golf Course. For gardening enthusiasts, VanDusen Garden and UBC Botanical Garden are welcome contemplative retreats. Once you live in Kerrisdale, you never want to leave.
