Was doing some adventuring in area and popped into this free exploration. Several buildings to examine from outside and read about the history. It is only open on Thursday- Saturday so we were restricted to outside and looking through windows. Still a very nice walk -30 minutes to take it in. Park in immediate vicinity so it is a worthwhile drive to spend a couple hours.

Fantastic gem to show visitors or hang out as a family and learn the history of the area and the salmon canning industry. Great free spot to let kids run around while sneaking in some learning!

The beautiful walkways in this area are user friendly. Some areas you will have to walk your bikes, which is good for all. Read the plaques, educational for all.

Hi Vekel, Glad you enjoyed your visit to Britannia. We are so fortunate to have the boardwalk run through our site and into Steveston. It's the perfect place for a walk or bike ride! Hope you will visit again soon!

We spent a lovely autumn afternoon visiting Steveston where there are interpretive and historical sites that preserve the fascinating history of salmon canning in British Columbia! Situated above wetlands the buildings on stilts once housed an international crew of salmon cannery workers in the 20th century. It is a brilliantly presented piece of important history for families to enjoy and learn about, sponsored by the City of Richmond.
