Fairview Slopes

fairview

Fairview Slopes | Place | It’s not Kitsilano, Mount Pleasant, South Granville, or Cambie Village. Fairview Slopes is that residential purgatory in between them all. If it weren’t for the fantastic view of downtown (from which it draws its name), it could be called the Hospital District because of Vancouver General Hospital and the many health-related offices and institutions nearby.
