The Hamilton area, a friendly neighbourhood of East Richmond, is a great place to raise a family. Hamilton Real Estate consists mainly of single family homes, with some townhouses and condos. The area has its own Hamilton Elementary school, community centre, fire hall and parks and shopping near by. High school students attend McNair Secondary.
The Hamilton neighbourhood is separated from the rest of Richmond by a few miles of Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) and nestled between two “arms” of the Fraser River, and the Queensborough neighbourhood of New Westminster. Highway 91 gives quick access west to the rest of Richmond, and east into New Westminster & Burnaby, as well as White Rock & Surrey to the south. There are industrial lands and a large business park south of Highway 91 along the South Arm of the Fraser River.
