Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
Whether it's picnicking, strolling, or viewing wildlife, there are parks that suit all interests in Richmond.
This diverse, sea-level municipality, encompassing 17 islands just south of Vancouver, has glorious views of the North Shore Mountains from nearly all of its 10 parks.
Garry Point Park
Located in southwest Richmond in the historic fishing village of Steveston, Garry Point Park is a great, scenic spot for kite-flying due to the prevailing winds at the mouth of the Fraser River. It opened as a park in 1989, and was previously a native fishing camp in the 1700's and the site of salmon canneries in the 20th century.
Today, Garry Point Park is the start of the Steveston Waterfront Greenway, which stretches 4.8km/3mi east through the village waterfront, historic and heritage sites like the Britannia Shipyard, and parkland. Run, bike, or bring the dog out for a walk. The Fisherman's Needle monument, erected in 1990, commemorates local fishermen who died at sea.
