  • Plan to spend 2 to 3 hours in and about Britannia Shipyards, there's so much to see and marvel about. My experience is that all the staff are very pleasant and informative.  more »

  • Awesome historic site with a few buildings to go into and look around. You can check out the old cannery, the bunk houses, the women's houses, a few other large buildings and the indoor boat launching system they used during the period. A really cool and beautiful walk. Make a day of it and head to steveston or Garry Point!
  • Excellent location, lots of historical information, come on a sunny day and enjoy the early 1900's buildings as you walk along fraser river boardwalk. There are no stores, or food here, but do not worry you are close to Steveston village which has all that good stuff
  • This is a great little piece of history. It's a lovely walk along a seaside boardwalk that connects the south bike trail to the village of Steveston and onto the north bike trail. There is a public washroom facility near the tourist information centre inside one of the historic buildings. I haven't been inside any of the buildings. I mostly do this walk for the several Pokestops along the way. There are always ducks sitting by the water, and sometimes blue herons. On nice days you will see people fishing on the piers closer to downtown Steveston. I would definitely bring a family here for half an hour to a couple hours.
  • Born and raised in Richmond and now live out east. Whenever i come back to visit its a must for me. Love taking walks along here. Fresh air, peaceful, friendly dog walkers and of course the beautiful view during all seasons.
  • Great family friendly spot to visit on a nice day.
