One Sentence Description
About this neighbourhood

What's Fun ?
Chill out in the park, take your dog down to play with all of their canine friends, play some bocce ball, use the baseball diamond, run up and down the hills backwards, toboggan down the steep yet safe hills in winter, grab something refreshing to drink at Linux Caffe and take it to the park.
Linux Caffe rocks! Get your fix of fair trade organic coffee, panini's and vegan treats, while sitting on the patio surrounded by computer nerds! Be sure not to miss the huge blow up penguin that dances on the corner of Grace and Harbord on sunny days, a tribute to the Linux operating system.
