Powell River is made up of four distinct community areas: Westview, the Townsite, Cranberry Lake and Wildwood. By including the whole Regional District we can add the unique communities of Lund and Texada Island to provide a wide range of lifestyle choices.
Westview - The most populous area of Powell River is Westview, which is also geographically central and is the commercial, light industrial and institutional centre of the municipality. Shopping areas are well established in the downtown section of Marine Avenue and in two shopping centres in the Joyce Avenue-Alberni Street area. Westview also contains the majority of the residential development in Powell River, and the largest proportion of future development potential. New single-family development is considered ideal for the southern end of Westview because of the large supply of vacant land. There is also a full service hospital and recreation center.
Townsite - North of Westview approximately two kilometres is the Powell River Townsite. This area offers most of the heritage resources in Powell River with a concentration of homes built before 1930 and some dating from before World War I. Of special significance is the official designation of the area as a National Heritage District by the federal government. Ongoing work and lobbying by the residents of the Townsite and the Townsite Heritage Society have resulted in significant improvements to many heritage properties in the area.
Powell River and the Sunshine Coast is year round sea to mountain recreation area. The region services include an 18 hole championship golf course, lawn bowling green, curling rink, a 16 lane Bowling alley, tennis courts, an all weather 400 meter track, as well as many baseball, fast ball, softball and soccer fields.
Miles of hiking trails lead to beautiful lookouts, waterfalls, or peaceful lakes which can be viewed along the 180 km Sunshine Coast Trail and numerous recreational areas can be reached by logging roads, owned by the logging companies. Boating and sports fishing are ardently pursued as all season sports. Marinas and Government docks are available to residents and visitors.
Powell River is known as the “HOT SPOT” for winter diving in North America. The “Mermaid” at Mermaid Cove in Saltery Bay Provincial Park is an extra special attraction. The area also has some of the largest Wolf eel and Octopus in the world. Canoeing may also be enjoyed on the quiet lakes of Powell River or you can take in the Powell Forest Canoe Route Circuit. Ocean canoeing and kayaking is very popular in Jervis Inlet, the Copeland Islands Marine Park, the Malaspina Inlet with Okeover Arm, and Desolation Sound. For all the nature lovers and sightseers, Powell River has many parks, viewpoints and beaches to explore, and the hiking club will help you take advantage of the many beautiful trails. Bird watching is also unprecedented.
