I have been living in Metro Vancouver for over 18 years but somehow missed this gem! It is so incredibly beautiful, relaxing and offers such a great 4km long jetty (8km total walking distance). Definitely a must for all who visit Richmond and Vancouver!

A quiet 4km respite, Iona Jetty is a great walk/run either on your own or with company. It has a great view of the airport and the local mountains but can get a little chilly as by the River so remember to bring a windbreaker.

The road to Iona Beach runs parallel to the main runway at the airport, it's great to park and watch the planes arrive. Once you get to the beach, it's relaxing and beautiful if you like to relax in the beauty of nature.

I grew up across the river from Iona on the Vancouver side of the Fraser River and have been coming here for almost 50 years. Yes, that is indeed Metro Vancouver's largest sewage treatment plant beside the park - the sewage lagoons are behind the chain link fence and the causeway that runs several kilometres out into the Salish Sea...

Just a quick jaunt out of the hustle and bustle, Iona Beach Regional Park is a relaxing break. Despite being so close to the airport, especially for bird-watchers, this area is a peaceful place to relax and get back to nature. Forested area, beach nearby, and the jetty nearby that takes you a couple miles out into the water, looking... More

Lived in Richmond for years and this was my favourite place to go for walking dogs. We have seen various wildlife and quite often: coyotes (early in the morning), bald eagles (very common), hawks, cranes, and many other birds that I can't name. The swamp area by the parking lot is nice to do bird watching and photographing. Dogs need... More

I like to come here to relax on a late summer day and listen to the birds. the beach isn't that great but the location means it can be secluded

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.
