A nice little walk along the river. The view along river is great. There are benches along the route if you want to stop and enjoy the active river view while seated.

Great public space in New Westminster. Live music on Thursday evenings and selling food and beer /wine at the park. This makes for a great place to meet friends and family. Walking distance from Columbia street sky train.
