    We were pleased to visit the Britannia Shipyards…the buildings are open Tuesday thru Sunday 12-4 pm, September 6th-December 31st. Lots to see and learn from the docents. A special thank you to Annie and Larry who talked to us about the rich history of the Murakami family who lived there.

    Talked my husband into spending two nights in Steveston and thoroughly enjoyed this site. It is such a pleasant relatively flat walk along the water and one can choose to visit the various buildings or just read the signage, which is excellent. The buildings had volunteers available to get information from and I noted one tour group being led around. While not directly part of the historic site, I especially enjoyed walking through the Japanese family's home (forgive me for not remembering their name) but it was very humbling and extremely well done. The little bunkhouse where the workers quarters were was also fascinating, especially listening to the audio stories. Public facilities readily available. Bicycles discouraged on many sections of Boardwalk and for good reason.

    We visited in November when there are fewer activities available. The staff on site were still very enthusiastic and friendly (despite the chilly weather). There is a ton of information to sift through about the shipping and the canning industry as well as different ethnic groups who worked in both industries.
    You can spend hours here or even just breeze through and enjoy the historic buildings and lovely Fraser River scenery.

    Was here 7-8 years ago, I was in awed over lots of Asian stores and restaurants in a mall. US don’t have anything like it. Now the mall just not as exciting, maybe Covid, stores empty , especially 3rd level.

    Been about two years since I stopped in for some shopping. Appreciate the consistency. Always clean; space frames ensure always bright; just enough traffic to give a feeling of vibrancy without feeling crowded. Some 200 outlets means great selection.

    Established in 1907, Minoru Park has been described as the “green heart of Richmond’s City Centre.” Given its designation as a multi-purpose space – with a more traditional “leisure side” and an “active side” – I’d say its description as a “green heart” for Richmond is quite apt. On the one hand, you have the lovely Minoru lakes; paved and gravel walking paths; beautiful gardens and historic Minoru Chapel. On the other hand, you have the Clement Track; basketball court, multiple tennis courts, baseball diamond, 2 bowling greens and a cricket pitch; and, Minoru Arenas, Cultural Centre and Aquatic Centre. In short, one could easily argue that Minoru Park is a park for all seasons.

    Curiously, despite Minoru’s status as a major park in the Greater Vancouver Area, this was my first time actively exploring part of it. My partner and I decided to visit Minoru because, well, we were pulled in by the promise of delightful cherry blossoms – and we weren’t disappointed. There were some pretty epic blooms to be had near the Clement Track. As we photographed the delicate pink blossoms, I couldn’t help but notice this interesting sculpture off in the distance – David Harder’s “Together.” And, given my enjoyment of public art, you just know I had to go in for a closer look; so, I took the “scenic route” and walked the track until coming upon the sculpture. When you get up close to “Together,” you witness its true beauty: Made up of over 300 silhouettes of citizens FROM Richmond + the local ecology, the piece takes a unique look at concepts of “community” and “togetherness.” In a very real sense, “Together” is a physical representation of this time and this place – and that makes it epic.

    While our time at Minoru Park was relatively short, we enjoyed it. The cherry blossoms were a joy, and seeing people out and about reminded us that maybe – just maybe – a version of normalcy isn’t too far away.

    Great place to kill if you have time before your flight. they offer free lockers for luggage which is amazing and welcomed! don't expect US Outlet pricing though, better than retail but still on the high side IMHO

    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.

    This little building is also the post office to many in the community of Steveston. It is part of the Steveston Historical Society & there’s lots to look at....there’s a lovely park beside the building & also a museum in the back. It’s a great little building on Moncton Street.

    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.

    Nice place to stay but is away from everything, which is may be an inconvenience to some.
    Only one Valet most of the time which can be frustrating. House keeping every three days, I think due to COVID?

    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!

    ... little kids at heart. If my 18, 20, and 21 year old kids enjoyed it with the covered slide, zip line, super tall climbing towers, and more, I can only imagine how real kids would react. Public washrooms available as well. A neat hidden gem.
