Trails & Cycling
Richmond's Recreational Trails and Cycling
Built on two main islands with a group of smaller islands at the mouth of one of the world's great rivers, Richmond offers a unique ecological setting for enjoyment and exploration. Rich and natural agricultural and industrial environments have evolved in Richmond where the Fraser River meets the Pacific Ocean.
Recreational trails are a key part of Richmond's parks and open space network linking places and spaces and encouraging people to be physically active and less dependent on cars.
