Richmond, BC

Island City, by Nature

Although indications of the original economy of Richmond, agriculture and fishing, are still there, the small rural BC community is now a large bustling city and home to the Vancouver International Airport and countless hotels, motels & tourist services. Here and there you can get a glimpse of an earlier, slower life in the village of Steveston, the productive farms, large parks and extensive dike system.

Just twenty minutes south of Vancouver, British Columbia, the city of Richmond is comprised of a series of islands in the mouth of the Fraser River that include Sea Island, most of Lulu Island, and fifteen smaller islands. Cycle along the waterfront trails. Spy on the birds at home in the natural wetlands or pick fresh berries from the farms. Take a glimpse at the second larges Buddhist Temple in North America and visit the historic fishing village of Steveston. For a relaxing break take a stroll through the gardens and ponds surrounding the heritage Minoru Chapel in Minoru Park. Shoppers will delight in the range of goods offered by Richmond merchants, from purely western items to those that cater to an Asian market.
