Brentwood Park is a quiet and attractive neighbourhood nestled in North Burnaby. It is a primarily residential area of single-family detached homes with some high- and low-rise apartment buildings near Springer Avenue. Some recent additions are new condominium developments near the area's SkyTrain stations, which provide lower-priced real estate options for young professionals and small families. Only 20 minutes from Vancouver and 10 minutes from Simon Fraser University, the neighbourhood has excellent transit links. A unique geographical characteristic of Brentwood Park is its winding, tree-lined streets with the park that shares its name at its centre. Brentwood Park is ideal for short walks and features great views of Burnaby Mountain and the North Shore mountains.
