    It was informative and interesting. I do believe the directional signage could be better. Loved the coupon for Ft Langley. We went there the next day.

    The entire experience was excellent from the video covering the salmon and herring trade to the detailed labels. The free tour of the canning line by Lauren brought the whole operation to life. You could vividly imagine what it would be like to be a worker there in freezing weather with your hands immersed in cold water all day long. Learned about the Japanese internment, even of third generation Canadians, and the Chinese Exclusion Act. A must visit.

    Richmond, BC is a great alternative to staying in Vancouver. Airport is actually here and easy to get to. Steveston is a quaint fishing town with many eating establishments. The park has trails and great views as well as connecting to West Dyke Trail for awesome biking and walking. Homes are beautiful and very peaceful. Stay is highly recommended

    Beautiful and peaceful place to visit, reflect and pray. Unfortunately it was raining when we went so it was a quick walk around the main area and not in the gardens. We would visit again if we are back in Vancouver.

    We sailed on the Gikumi up the Fraser. It was narrated with wonderful stories of rum runners, settlers, dance hall girls that Lulu island was named after and so much more! The view from water is so different & you feel the power of the river. Crossing over the Dease Island tunnel - listening to the story of who its named after made it so memorable. The crew were professional and personable . We even tasted fresh local blueberries. We could ask question both about the river, the history or the boat. Whether you are a local or visitor I highly recommend exploring the Fraser estuary aboard the Gikumi and a visit to Britannia Shipyards.

    While there are lots of activities available in this large multi-purpose park, this report focuses in the north end where the lake and gardens are situated.
    After being closed for some time (it feels like years) the "lakes" area has been reopened, and a pleasant peaceful place it is. I enjoyed getting a few steps in while watching the water, the geese, and the wonderful landscaping.
    If you are in the area on business or visiting someone in the nearby hospital, destress by coming here for a walk or a sit - you'll be glad you did.

    Its a great mall, just remember to bring cash! Lots of places in the food court will only accept cash. I have been here many times and that will always be the case

    What do we look for in a shopping mall? Lots of parking for those coming by car, proximity to public transit for the rest of us? Check. Large enough we can do all our shopping in one trip? Check. Wide aisles for strolling? Check. Well lit with clean washrooms? Check. Good selection of eateries? Check.
    Clearly, this mall meets all these criteria. It's been about a year since I was last here, and not surprised to see they continue to meet their own high standards.

    Arrived around noon to find the parking lots packed. Actually, not that surprising after four days of rain. Unlike the many forested parks we locals enjoy in dryer times, I have come to avoid dirt trails in most parks, as they have turned to mud! The gravel base and good drainage here is ideal for a stroll in Vancouver's rainy season, as can be attested to by the large crowd.
    Other positives: this is a straight line 4 km walk with views unlike those you will see anywhere else in Vancouver. Imagine looking EAST to the airport and watching planes take off. Look south to the ferry terminal and north to UBC - I know; different, eh? For us old fellas, there's a porta-potty at the far end, and a proper bathroom at the parking lot.
    So, even in winter, consider this good gravel base a great place to catch up on your steps.

    We stopped by for the first time just over a month ago. We enjoyed it so much we returned a couple of weeks later. On the first visit we just stayed close to the feeders and watched the small birds. For the second trip we took the long loop trail. It wasn't very interesting but it was a nice level walk.
    The feeders attracted woodpeckers, hummingbirds and many other small birds. We are trying to improve our photography skills and this is a great spot to do that. Also, the caretaker is a very friendly and knowledgeable guy who shared alot of information with us.
    The parking area is quite small. On our first visit we had to park over on Shell Road and walk back along the shoulder of the road to get to the entrance.

    This was a fantastic experience to view first hand Olympic medals and cauldrons used over the past 50 years or so to light the Olympic torch. Extremely interesting to see the Nazi propaganda that was the 1936 Berlin games. Many interactive activities for old and young to enjoy firsthand. Great films to help you better understand the Olympic sacrifices athletes must do to prepare. As an American, found it fair and also many American athletes were featured. Of course the Canadian Hockey team is front and center!
