“Great place to for a walk by the River but not much in the way of amenities.”
#6 in Victoria-Fraserview
2500 East Kent Street
Strangely, the green waterfront pathway next to the railway along the Fraser River in the southeast corner of the city is divided into two separate parks. And while Riverside Park gets gazebos and elaborate playgrounds and lots of other amenities, Gladstone-Riverside gets…a tiny play structure for 3-6 year olds. And that’s about it.
But! There’s still plenty of nice views of the Fraser River, including a couple of wooden decks you can walk out on, giving a particular watery postcard image most don’t experience in Vancouver. The flat path is mostly boring, but being next to the railway, ocean and houses makes for some neat visuals.
Just go in knowing it’s more of a simple walking trail and less of a full park, and you’ll have a good time.
