Walking Guide
Enjoy a wide variety of walking routes throughout the City of Richmond. You will find detailed information about walks, directions, parking, washrooms and access in Richmond's Walking Guide Book.

The Guide Book was created in 2008 with a Union of BC Municipalities Community Health Promotion grant. The Guide Book details 14 Walk Richmond walking routes, 6 Urban Scavenger Hunts, and the Walking Handbook (compliments of the BC Recreation and Parks Association).

The free Walking Series is a guided group format led by the Walk Richmond Coordinator and volunteer walk leaders.

People of all ages who are generally inactive can improve their health and well-being by becoming active at a moderate-intensity on a regular basis.  Below are a few way to get you active and to keep you moving:

Richmond’s Island Heritage Adventures
Using a series of illustrated activity maps, available online or in print at appropriate sites, adventures are built around local cultural and environmental heritage sites, parks and trails. Participants are guided through hands-on activities that help them appreciate, experience and discover familiar public places in Richmond with new eyes. For more information call 604-231-6460.

Urban Packers - An Interpretive Walk Through Steveston
Put on your walking shoes, your thinking caps and your backpacks and discover some of the layers of Steveston’s history!

This exciting program consists of a set of backpacks for teachers to rent out. Each backpack contains tools for teachers to facilitate a fun, activity based walk through the village. The following themes are covered: architecture, culture/community, economy, transportation and the environment/geography.
