Had a couple hours before my flight so thought I'd check it out. It was raining once I was a couple km from the park so visibility wasn't ideal but not too many people so for me, this was peaceful. Definitely better than sitting in the airport with everyone waiting to board.

It was a very hot day, make sure you bring sunscreen and water! It's around a 4km walk out on the jetty to the tip. But definitely worth it! Beautiful views.

It's a few minutes away from Richmond and Vancouver. It's peaceful and is a perfect place to bird watch. If you like biking it's about 5.5km from the Arthur Laing Bridge and it's easy riding. You will also find a pipeline for the water treatment plant that can bring you about 4km out. The concrete pipe is wide enough for... More

Iona Beach Park is subject to curfew. Simply put, the beach is open to you from sunrise to sunset.There are bylaws in place and fines for being in the Park outside these hours.This is an open expanse of beach on the Straights of Georgia facing the seaward side and the north shore hills on the other side. Magnificent on a... More

This is a great place to take the family bowser (at the off leash area). Your dog can romp and roam in riverside bush and sand and swim in the Fraser. But familiarize yourself with on leash vs off leash areas. There are plenty of dog control officers ready to slap you with a fine. One more thing, if your... More

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
