Evergreen is Rossland's New Family Neighbourhood. The perfect balance... hidden at the end of Rossland's main street, between the friendly neighbourhood of Pinewood and Happy Valley's beautiful rural acreages. (You won't find dark, empty vacation houses here.) Evergreen is one-of-a-kind: a neighbourhood IN the community, surrounded by forest. A beautiful walk to shopping and school allows you to take advantage of our outdoor lifestyle.
Filling up with families!! Between the 4 Evergreen families there are 9 kids from 3 years & up. Right next door in Pinewood, there are also many more kids. The streets are busy with kids walking to school every morning! There are already plans to build a tree fort in the Evergreen forest... :)
Rossland is a special place... The area's incredible amenities have attracted an eclectic mix of like-minded people from around the world, who live to play and raise their families in the mountains. Rossland is still a community the way people remember... helpful & friendly neighbours, spirited community events and frequent backyard gatherings of friends are the norm.

Rossland reviewed in "Canada's Best Outdoor Towns" in nice little synopsis on the town from Explore Magazine. Read Article
Steeped with a history rich in gold and silver mining, this picturesque alpine city lies in the beautiful Monashee Mountain range of BC. Rossland is accessible for tourists, located 10 minutes north of the Canada/USA border, a 2.5 hour drive north of Spokane, WA's international airport and just 10 minutes from the Trail Airport's regional flights. However, Rossland's relative isolation, with an 8 hour drive from both Vancouver and Calgary, keeps the town's permanent population of ~3,500 from growing too fast.
Come and experience Rossland for yourself!
