Ambleside Town Centre Plan

Ambleside, as West Vancouver’s town centre, provides something for all District residents, whether it’s where they live or work or where they shop, socialize, or access municipal services.

We're launching the Ambleside Town Centre Planning process to create a new plan for the future of West Vancouver's town centre.

Ambleside is your town centre and we'll be working with you through every phase of the project by providing you with a range of opportunities to get involved and provide input. Start by taking a survey, or by taking staff on a walking tour.

This first phase is all about opportunities: what do you envision for the future of Ambleside?

Citizen-led Walking tours

No one knows a community better than those that live, work and play there and as part of Phase 1 of the Ambleside Town Centre Plan we want you to show us your Ambleside by taking staff on a walking tour.

Do you have a favourite place or building? A place you like to walk? Something you think we need to know about Ambleside? We want you to show to us!

Starting on November 14, staff are available for walking tours on:

  • Tuesday mornings from 9–11 a.m.,
  • Thursday mornings from 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
  • Friday afternoons from 1–3 p.m. 

Book a walking tour by contacting us:




Can't make it out to a walking tour, but still have something to tell or show us?

Send your photos and comments by email, or phone us. 

Learn more about Ambleside (Community Profile)

Part of planning for the future is knowing about Ambleside today: its places and the people who live, work and access services in the town centre. 

We've prepared an Ambleside Community Profile to encourage and support an informed public dialogue as we plan for the future.
