Cape Horn, which includes the areas known as Dartmoor and Coleman, features a mix of housing, industrial and commercial activity. The area has been a residential neighbourhood since the 1950s when it first offered housing for a rapidly growing region. According to the 2001 Census, 82% of all occupied dwellings were constructed before 1990. More recent redevelopment, particularly along Brunette Avenue, has included additions to the area’s multiple family housing units. Park areas in Cape Horn provide recreation opportunities for residents – playgrounds, basketball and tennis courts, and trails for meandering.
Some light industrial activity exists in Cape Horn, primarily on Schoolhouse Street. A variety of retail and commercial services are available on Austin Avenue, along the Lougheed Highway, and in other areas of neighbouring Maillardville. Access to large retail outlets south of the Lougheed and TransCanada Highways is most convenient for Cape Horn residents. The Town Centre is just 10 to 15 minutes away.
