Elphinstone is a small, but populous area bordering the Town of Gibsons. The southernmost area in the SCRD, Elphinstone is home to an agricultural plateau where many small farms still operate, offering popular roadside produce stands in summer. The slopes of Mount Elphinstone are filled with a diverse ecosystem furrowed by scenic creeks and ravines, and are a popular destination for hikers and mountain bikers.
Elphinstone is primarily made up of residential subdivisions, with amenities including public beaches, parks, playgrounds, walking and bicycle trails. Major attractions can be found on the waterfront, such as Ocean Beach Esplanade where people can enjoy the beaches and waterfront walk, to Chaster House, a community hall which can be booked for public and private events.
