Elphinstone is a small, but populated area surrounding the north, west and south of Gibsons. The southernmost area in the SCRD, Elphinstone is home to an agricultural plateau where early farm settlements are still operational. Elphinstone also includes large tracts of undeveloped land, small businesses, residential areas, parks and a pioneer cemetery.
There are several public beaches, parks, greenways, major creek corridors and ravines running throughout the area, which are linked together with walking and bicycle trails. The Ocean Beach Esplanade is a waterfront area that serves as a recreation focal point for the entire community; another major attraction along the Esplanade is Chaster House, a popular waterfront rental place for community and private events.
