    Love this place. Have been enjoying it since I was a young boy. Nice pathways to walk. Always lots of kite flying. Even kite surfers. Quite the site. Although the biggest drawback has always been parking. Eapecially during events like fireworks. But well worth the walk or trip on transit to get there.

    Beautiful park along the water. Lovely big open areas right next to a fish and chip and Timothy ice cream stand. We went on a Sunday and there were a lot of people flying kites in the beautiful blue sky. Children were laughing and blowing bubbles, it was lovely. Also I am told the best fishing spot in Richmond.

    Garry Point Park is not the prettiest park you'll see. It has a pretty bare landscape but has an amazing view of the Fraser River. It is a great place for a walk, a picnic, or a bike ride. It is also a perfect place to fly a kite! This is the place to go for personal quiet time where you can just sit on a rock or a driftwood and enjoy the view. Come alone, with a group, or with your special someone...this park is beautiful!

    Nice dog(leashed)friendly park for an afternoon stroll. Lots of walking paths, big open fields. Delicious little fish and chips place right by the water. Can watch ships go in and out all day. Can get really busy on nicer weekends. Photo from ships to shore '17.

    Still a stunning view lived here most of my life. It does concern me that the new signs appears to allow swimming? I've had my own chocolate lab be swept away by the river. It would be treacherous for an Olympic Swimmer in that river it's always running below the surface!

Where to stay in Richmond

Many travelers visit Richmond on their way to or from Vancouver International Airport, so the city's accommodations cater primarily to visitors in transit. Bridgeport Road, which leads directly to the airport, offers the best selection, with comfortable but rather dull chain hotels offering a clean, comfortable place to rest before a long flight. If you're looking for something with a bit more character, head to Blundell Road to choose from a range of independent guesthouses and bed and breakfasts.
