We like this park because it hasn't been overdeveloped, and is pretty much natural. The walkways are very well established, even people with walkers would be comfortable. The washrooms seem quite new and clean.
The dyke bike path is awesome, well surfaced, and wide. If I had a gripe it would be that there aren't enough benches to give a nice place to stop, relax, and enjoy the environment.
The parking lot is well established but doesn't really provide space for all the adventurers in the growing population.
Overall I'd give it a 10 out of ten for experience, and an 8.5 out of ten all around!

Mud Bay Park is ascenic walk and a chance to see shorebirds and waterfowl. The Nture Trail is nearly 3 kilometres long and takes about 1.5 hours to walk. The park's most spectacular feature is its view of Boundary Bay, which transforms drastically at different times of day. At high tide, seals and loons can be seen in the waves. At low tide, the table is set for a shorebird's favourite feast when mudflats and eelgrass meadows are exposed to the air.
Continue along the Dyke Trail to follow 20 kilometres of shoreline all the way to Boundary Bay Regional Park in Delta. Boundary Bay Park is a perfect place for beginning riders. There are many ways to enjoy the easy dyke trails.
Busy with bikes on the weekend so if your walking you need to keep an eye put for them.

Running parallel to the water, this wide gravel path can be accessed at several location (check the website) and you can walk for miles in both directions. The trail is completely flat, so very easy to walk or bike.
Because the trail is so long, it is a good idea to decide on the length of time you want to spend biking or walking, go in one direction for half that amount of time, then turn around to return to where you started. You could easily walk for several hours and bike for miles, so we do it by time, rather than distance.

not a good place to go, that why you don't see any locals there, plus from what I have heard not really a safe place to go

I have ridden this trail from Mud Bay Park in Delta to Tsawwassen solo and with family and friends. It's a nice long ride with an array of birds - be careful not to run over the rabbits and snakes that you may encounter along the way. The Beach Grove Cafe in Tsawwassen, being a turn around point provides a great menu and good food. The ONLY downside is that there is no washroom between the 2 starting points.

Pups and I went for a nice walk at Mud Bay Park! A beautiful sunny ☀️ day with a bit of wind!! Had a great walk and feeling energized! No people there when we were there so pups were able to slowly sniff every blade of grass!

One of those places with an equal list of positives and negatives.

On the negative side: Not an easy place to find. I'm a local, and I needed a map the whole way. If you are an out-of-towner, I suggest you have an up-to-date GPS. Not easy to access. Not on a bus route, so auto or bike to get there. No wonder the parking lot was full of pickups and other large vehicles capable of handling two or more bikes. Freeway noise. I was there to walk and meditate; the latter became difficult as the adjacent 99 freeway roar continued throughout the short loop that led to the waterfront. Even earplugs didn't help. If you want a quiet peaceful stroll, go somewhere else.

On the positive side: Flat, with good gravel trails. Easy on the ankles, and didn't appear to be a deterrent to the many cyclists. Good signage and parking and one toilet. Beyond the bird watching and interesting water views, trails connect with longer trails to west and north.

great place to walk or cycle, lots of wildlife can be spotted and great views of the surrounding area, highway noise would be the only negative thing

Not the easiest place to get to--and that makes it special because very rarely would I say this park is busy. The trails and scenery are great and worth the time.

With that said--2 cautions. It is called Mud Bay for a reason. The tidal flats are mud and if you are going to go when the tide is out there will be a smell of...marsh mud. It's not overwhelming (but then, that could just be me having grown up going there so I might be desensitized to the...scents) but it is notable. The second caution--it's not exactly a busy place and the trails lead away from the parking lot so don't lock valuables in the car. If you are going to relocate valuables within the vehicle (ex. front seat to the trunk) don't do it in the parking lot. Do it on a side street before you get to the park. I'm not trying to scare you off of visiting--but hiding something in your trunk while in the parking lot isn't really hiding it. I'd make the same suggestion whether you are going to the mall or someplace like Stanley Park. It's just good practice--relocate items before you arrive.

One of those places where you can loose yourself in peaceful solitude. Lots of free parking and walking trails and from the parking lot you can ride your bike right on into the back of
Tsawwassen. assen
