Great walk out on spit, but allow plenty of time

The length of the spit is very deceiving...the map states that it is 4 km to the end, so 8 km round trip. We walked quite quickly and it took us about 45 minutes to reach the end... read more

I've walked here with and without dogs, when the tide was low and the weather balmy. Barefoot is best; the sand is warm and there are lots of tide pools to wade through. It's a doggy heaven too, for racing and sniffing and cavorting. Give yourself 3 hours from the parking lot, because you'll want to take a picnic break... More

Here's a park that's great to go for a quiet walk. As it is the location of the sewage treatment plant, swimming in the summer is not recommended! Drop by the new outlet mall on your way in or out.

This park offers wide open spaces for you kids, dogs, and other exotic animals to run around. There is a city sewer farm/process plant nearby so be prepared to plug your nose when the winds pick up.

You can walk or cycle the 4 km outflow pipe, bird watch , lay on the beach to sun tan, have a picnic or just relax. It is a quiet place to spend an afternoon or the day away form the city noise.

The park is located on the north side of Sea Island and provides a very good view of planes taking off from YVR (depending on the wind direction). The main attraction of the place is the long causeway or jetty which is about 4 km long sticking into Georgia Strait. It's a pleasant walk during the summer but at other... More

We take our dog for walk. It is remote, but close enough from the city. You can see jet airplane taking off and land. Strolling by the water with sunset is great place to be!

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.
