The Killarney neighbourhood, which contains the area known as Champlain Heights, runs north from the Fraser River to its north border along East 41st Avenue and Kingsway, and stretches from Boundary Road—Vancouver's eastern border with Burnaby—to a line including Elliott Street and Vivian Drive on the western border. The neighbourhood is mostly built on the slope of the rise from the Fraser River, facing southward across Richmond, and is focused around Rupert Street (which merges with Kerr Street near 49th Avenue).
The Killarney area was one of the last portions of Vancouver to be developed (though it does boast a number of examples of 1920s farmhouses) and was mostly second growth forest until after World War II.
Killarney is well populated with parks and green spaces, reflecting its forest history. The largest is Everett Crowley Park. The Fraserview Golf Course also includes a number of trails. Killarney Park is the location of Killarney Secondary School, as well as a community centre. Houses for sale in the Killarney community allow you the opportunity to make this lovely area home.
