Richmond, BC, Canada
Day 1 - Garry Point Park
Circle Garry Point Park for views over the Salish Sea take some great photos out at Gary Point Viewpoint, an excellent place for a run or to walk the dog. Enjoy the fresh breeze and explore the waterfront, Kuno Garden (a Japanese style memorial garden), beached logs, expansive open areas for picnicking and kite flying. There is also a Fisherman's Memorial Needle on the south side of the park. Lots of wildlife such as migratory birds, frogs and many different types of plants along the path. One of my favourite things to do is simply enjoying some fish and chips or an ice-cream on one of the park benches, a really beautiful place.
