Garry Point Park
Garry Point Park is large waterfront park, located at the southwest tip of Richmond, close to historic Steveston Village.
The park provides spectacular vistas across the Salish Sea and beyond to Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Garry Point Park is considered by many to be one of the best places to watch a sunset in Richmond.
While you may have the urge to cool off in the river on a hot summer day, please be aware that there are NO lifeguards at the beach, the Fraser River is fast moving with a very strong current and the area is unsafe for swimming.
The unique rolling and open landscape Garry Point Park includes the Kuno Garden, a Japanese style memorial garden, beached logs and beach access, expansive open areas for picnicking and kite flying and power kiting, interpretive signage and the Fisherman's Memorial Needle on the south side of the park. Additional heritage aspects in the park include a heritage moorage facility with buildings and docks at historic Scotch Pond located on the north side of the park.
Two concession stands run seasonally at the main entrance of the park, along with washroom facilities and dog watering station.
