Welcome to New Westminster. Whether you’re looking for great eats, fantastic shopping, fun parks and activities, celebratory festivals, or some relaxing time at the spa, this website is designed to help you find it. . . and discover the best of New West.

New Westminster is vibrant year round. Sizzling summer brings festivals and events — such as the weeklong Hyack Festival — walks along the Quay and hot days spent relaxing in parks and on restaurant patios. As autumn approaches, activities move indoors, but the fun remains. Friends and families huddle around dinner at New Westminster’s finest restaurants and pubs, and the arts community takes center stage as people flock to indulge in art, music and theatre.
