I'm a very amateur birdwatcher but my sister and her husband who took me are much more expert at this. We had a huge telescope along which made this trip far more interesting for looking at birds flying over the ocean. Best thing we saw...More

Awesome way to start your morning. A short drive from most spots around Vancouver. The number of types of birds was amazing. On the edge of the city, great to be able to find a spot like this and “get out of the city”.

Wonderful place to enjoy an afternoon stroll in the park and watch the birds. Very well kept place! The drive is a bit out of the way but well worth the visit. There is a small admission fee.

This is a great place to go feed the ducks and geese with little ones. For slightly older kids, you can buy a bird spotting guide... and they can identify various species. Bird seed bags are $1.00. Great visit.

There is no way of getting there using public transit, not even if you were willing to walk quite a bit. Public transit doesn't go out there because very few people live there (it's on an island that is mostly used for... More
