...but many other assets.
The Covid issue has prompted me to look for new places to walk and commune with nature, but at the same time staying close to home. Found this park on TripAdvisor, and dropped by after some business in the area. This is a magnificent place for bird watching, and has lots of information about the bog, and its importance to the ecosystem. But, my main interest was all of the above, plus a place to walk. Sadly, I forgot that the trails would be soggy to the point of impassibility due to the damp season. So, spent an enjoyable, albeit short, time on the elevated board walk. Suggest you wait until the summer or wear rubber boots.
I should also mention good trail maps available in the Nature House, free parking, and clean washrooms.

Yes, a nature reserve in the middle of Richmond. A large intact peat bog, well maintained trails, endemic flora and fauna, a chance to getaway from the city.
Also, a nature park bisected by a major freeway completely cutting one half off from the other, the borders of the park are all major arterial roads such that road noise is ever present no matter where you are in the park, parking is difficult and small in the Eastern half, better in the Western part, boardwalks can be extremely slippery when wet, and no garbage cans on the trails... pack in, pack out.

I walked the Eastern trails at 0630 this morning and I was the only one and it was quiet and peaceful... save for the noise of the traffic barreling down Westminster Hwy and Sidaway. 3 stars.

People who say there is nothing to do in Richmond hasn’t been to the Nature Park. What a beautiful place! I spend hours there, wandering around and sitting quietly amongst squirrels and birds.

Thought it is free but it is actually admission by donation. I would donate C$100 to be a life member! It is such an oasis in Richmond and readily accessible by car. Wish I have more time to do nature walks.

A well-paved walkway takes visitors through a tranquil path through woods and plants right off of Westminster Hwy. There are many nature-themed shows and seminars throughout the year. A pleasant and easy walk anytime you need a dose of nature. Enjoy!

The Nature Park is near the center of a bustling city with an international airport, and a freeway nearby. However, the peace an solitude one experiences walking through the many trails is very special. Walks can be as long or as short as one wishes, with good signage to assist.

It was a real treat.

If you want to have an escape into the nature but don't want to go too far, this will be a great park for you! Located in the centre of Richmond's busy residential and commercial district it offers an Oasis for town folks to wind down.

Its about 200 acres and has a 5 km walking trail. No pets permitted so leave your furry friends at home and take time to a dog park nearby!

Parking available along the street.

I don't want to confuse anyone. The picture featured here on this Park is actually the Nature park next door to Richmond Nature Park. There is a 1.5 km boardwalk and roughly 5 km of trail in Richmond Nature Observation Park. Richmond Nature Park is next door with multiple trails. I live next door. Richmond BC was designed as a grid in 1907. All the streets and roads are exactly 1 mile by 1 mile. These were all farms back then. Richmond Nature park is 1 mile by 1 mile...a square mile of a snapshot of what Richmond looked like 100 years ago. It's a swamp and a bog! No really tall trees because the ground is too soft to support large trees. The ground is like walking on a bed mattress made of Pete-moss. Fresh wild berries grow everywhere. The parks are full of wildlife too, coyotes, raccoons, muskrats, rats, rabbits, owls, crows, eagles, hawks and many more.
