Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
With a delightful selection of provincial parks and regional parks, both Pitt Meadows and neighbouring Maple Ridge are well worth exploring for outdoors lovers.
Whether it's a day of fishing and bird watching or a weekend of camping and picnicking, a hiking excursion or a cycling tour, these communities abound with options.
Golden Ears Provincial Park
Golden Ears Provincial Park is the largest and most popular provincial park in the Metro Vancouver area, and can be reached by car in less than an hour from downtown Vancouver. Enjoy fishing for rainbow trout, windsurfing, canoeing, or picnicking at Alouette Lake. Blessed with magnificent mountain views, Golden Ears also provides more than 400 campsites.
Filming The A-Team Remake
Nature buffs can watch for woodpeckers and chickadees and examine information boards on the Spirea Nature Trail. Love a good workout while horseback riding or hiking? Check out Alouette Mountain Trail and the Incline trail near Mike Lake. Recently, the park was used to shoot action scenes for the movie remake of The A-Team.
