  • Steveston's waterfront is just one of many activities in this compact little area. Walkers especially will enjoy strolling from Garry Point Park, about ten minutes to the west, past the Cannery and.....  more »
  • Great place meet friends for a stroll or just have very nice food and loads of places to take pictures  more »
  • An awesome place to come and spend a nice time outside the city with lots of restaurants, stores and even a great market on the dock. We biked from east Vancouver in a little more than an hour and as a reward we saw a Sea Lion! We will definitely come back again!
  • The wharf is still open to public, you can walk down to the fishing boats and buy fresh seafood if they are available, Right now only the previous frozen shrimp and salmon available. You get the small town feeling in this area and perfect to spend an outdoor lunch or coffee here, very nice to walk around those small retails and pricing is reasonable. If you wish you can walk along the Garry park and river dike trail. A very refreshing walk beside the river and you can walk right up to the north west corner of Richmond almost to the airport.
