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

Check it out....great place to sit and watch the sun set, walk the duck ponds or take a stroll umongst the driftwood on the beach. If you are a plane watcher you will see lots of them too.

I jogged to the end of the jetty and back which was a chore but well worth it. The jetty is level and flat so it's no problem if you have to time. The other side of the park has beach and wetlands. The drive to the park is fun itself as the road hugs the airport's north edge.

This is an interesting and somewaht unique place. The long walkway out into the Strait of Georgia is a sewer pipe! Go there at high tide or it could be smelly, not from the sewage, but from the smell of the stinky "beach". It is a dog's heaven, watch your step accordingly. Depending on the wind direction, park users may... More
