Lots of walking trails, driftwood and overlooking the Georgia Strait. Good view of ships and barges passing.

Iona is my spot to be whenever I want some "me" time. What I love about Iona is that it is so peaceful and quiet out here, no matter the time and season. Funnily enough, it is located right next to the YVR airport, which is kind of contradictory or ironic to what I am describing. Even with that, it... More

This park was just a nice surprise! It has the most amazing sunsets and views! This place is great for a date but also nice to walk alone and would be fun for a family! It also has public bathrooms and a water fountain which is nice.

I come to this park about 100 times a year it is beautiful ! You can walk out on the Jetty it's a lovely 8km walk if you walk to the end and back out on the water. There are so many birds to see, I have seen Snow Owls, Eagles, Sandpipers, Hawks. You even see seals in the water... More

Well, I did not know what to expect going here and was a little turned off on the drive out as the smell from the sewage treatment plant was not pleasant to say the least, I kind of wondered why they would build a park such as this. It did occur to me though that the wind would normally be... More

A real nice surprise. Visited for a walk after supper and was impressed with the park . The walk along the pier takes you 4 km out into the bay and affords great views across the Strait towards the islands or back towards UBC and Howe Sound. Great place to watch the airliners approach and land at YVR. Make sure... More

This is an interesting place as the outfall for the sewage treatment plant is actually a great walk out into Georgia Strait. This park is near the airport and important bird staging and migration area. The road out to Iona is not heavily used and is popular with cyclists. It can be a bit windy but still a nice place...

Not sure why people would walk in this area. The path is at the end of the airport runway and close to the water treatment station. Didnt like it.

If you want a nice level walk by the ocean with a million dollar view, this is the place. A total distance of 8 km round trip. I enjoy jets, which is an added bonus because of the proximity to YVR.

If you are visiting Vancouver hopefully you have rented a car because Iona beach is not accessible by public transportation. The beach itself is not huge but most of the time there is barely anyone there so you can enjoy a nice and quiet time with ocean view in front of ya. There is also a very long walk-way that... More
