Hastings-Sunrise is best known for the Pacific National Exhibition and horse racing at Hastings Park. The area is mainly residential, with strip malls, shops, and services along Hastings Street and other major streets. It is an ethnically diverse and working-class area that also attracts young professionals. On its north slope, there are impressive views of Burrard Inlet and the North Shore mountains. To the east, it borders Burnaby, at Boundary Road.
In 1900 Hastings was a resort destination that drew vacationers not only to the beachfronts, but also to the Hastings Park racetrack. Local residents wanted more ‘wholesome’ activities, and in 1910 the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) was the result. By the 1920s, much of the waterfront was occupied by railyards, wheat pools, and the Port of Vancouver, which continues to be a major employer for the area. There is still public waterfront access at New Brighton Park, near the original Hastings resort site, north of Hastings Park and the PNE.
