It had been a while since we had been to Steveston. On a beautiful, sunny winter day, Pete and I decided to go for a nice walk to stretch our legs and to work off some excess Christmas calories. Steveston was the perfect choice for our walk.
We took our dog and walked a nice loop around Garry Point Park. It was quite cold and windy, but it allowed us to watch some brave folks try to paraglide. The scenery in Steveston is just fantastic – fishing boats, the water, the heritage buildings – it is quaint and relaxing.
After our stroll around the park, we wandered the short distance to the village itself. We passed the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, which is an interesting museum about what life
was like for the people who lived and worked at the cannery so many years ago. Admission is cheap ($7-ish) and is worth a walk through if you have the time and the interest.
We continued along the boardwalk and passed even more fishing boats (they can be a great place to buy fresh fish when it is in season). There are plenty of restaurants in the Village core but this was a walking and not an eating date, so we kept on going. We did stop and grab a coffee at one of the many coffee shops(seriously…there are a lot of coffee shops…the people here must never sleep) and kept on strolling. You can walk or bike forever on the boardwalk.
The actual path goes for miles along the Fraser River and it is completely flat so it is very easy walking or bike riding. The views are wonderful. We found Steveston Village to be a a great place to spend some time. We will be back soon.
