Maple Ridge and neighbouring Pitt Meadows are loaded with fun water activities for the whole family.
Whether it's boating, canoeing, kayaking, wakeboarding, or tubing, or fishing for salmon, trout or sturgeon there's a local lake, river, or water park that caters to the water sport in question. Alouette Lake and Pitt Lake are two popular lakes for water activities.
A great starting point for water activities is Alouette Lake, the mountain-encircled jewel in Golden Ears Provincial Park. A popular camping destination less than an hour east of Vancouver, Alouette Lake offers canoe, kayak, and pedal boat rentals during the high season (May to September). A four-lane cement surface boat launch awaits at the south end of the lake.
As an alternative, try wind-surfing or water-skiing. Fishing for rainbow trout, Dolly Varden, and cutthroat is also available at this 1,644ha/4,060ac lake.
