My husband works in Richmond and had noticed the long pipeline walking path out at Iona Beach park. We didn't realize how long of a walk it is - 6 km round trip - and took our daughter just over halfway before turning back. On a nice day it's a great walk where you can take photos of all of... 更多
My wife & I walked the jetty for a second time a couple of months ago. It's an interesting 2 hour walk which is approx 8.6 kms in distance return. It's basically a level, straight walk on the jetty with views of life on the water on both sides including local bird life The Vancouver (YVR) airport is a short... 更多
We were in Vancouver last Christmas visiting family and they took us to Iona Beach to walk on the jetty/spit pipe. I was a little put off at first because it is in fact a sewer pipe, but we liked the walk so much we went back and did it again before we left. The entire 4km ish walk is... 更多
Park is very near the International Airport. Due to flight mix-ups we had six hours to wait for next flight. We had access to a car so went to the beach. Watched kids and adults explore the delta and watched the tide come in. Sat in the sun on huge pieces of drift wood along the beach.
This is my favorite beach, I call it Freedom Beach, I can walk for hours at low tide and get myself grounded, all alone most of the time, the beach area is a driftwood paradise or graveyard if you wish to call it that. You can find a very secluded area and practice your NUDE bathing, It is a Wildlife... 更多
Had not walked the jetty for years. Don't let the fact it is sewer outfall throw you. At the beginning of the walk people picnic in the park. Group of us did the walk out and back on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Was a bit windy walking out, but warm and no wind walking back. Many people walking or bike... 更多
This park is near the Vancouver Airport. It is also near the sewage treatment plant for Vancouver. some days there may be an odour. Its a bit hard to access if you rely on public transit.. Its a great place to spend an afternoon. it has limited services- basically fresh water and toilets. Its an ideal place for bird watching.... 更多
Compared to other nature parks around Metro Vancouver, Iona Beach Regional Park offers nothing really spectacular. It's flat and easy to walk and it can get windy as it is by the ocean. The park is very good for birding though. Many species of birds can be observed there. During our visit we saw Tree swallows, which are very cute,... 更多
Walked the jetty all the way to the end, great view of the sunset and the surrounding area. Easy walk, to the end of the jetty it is just over 3.KM. Nice place to relax and enjoy the water.
A great place to get away from the City, take the dog for a run. You can walk out about 2 miles along the trail next to the sewage outfall pipes into the Gulf of Georgia
