Print Friendly, PDF & Email

NAME:

Vancouver Ave was probably named after the explorer Captain George Vancouver.

Vancouver Ave was also known as Vancouver St. “In response to a query, the Deputy Town Clerk of Mount Albert advised the Chief Surveyor (23/12/1980) that the correct name was Vancouver Street” (Auckland Libraries, n.d.). However, Vancouver Ave is what is currently used on maps.

DESCRIPTION:

Vancouver Ave runs between Sandringham Rd and Huntingtree Ave.

Columbia Rd runs off the south west side.

On the south west side of the street, numbers run from 1 to 3. On the north east side numbers run from 2 to 26.
