Father’s Day is just around the corner and we're going to share some gift ideas and activities for your dad or that special father figure in your life. 

Round Of Golf

Does Dad play golf? Then this is a no brainer especially with the weather that has been forecasted for this weekend. Did you know Richmond is a year-round golfing destination? We have public courses, private courses, driving ranges, and pitch and putt parks, you choose which suits—click here for more info.

Something for the History Buff 

History buff dads (and we know there are more than a few out there), why not take them to one of our museums or historic sites in Richmond, they will certainly be amazed. The Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site was once BC’s biggest salmon cannery and a short, scenic walk from the Cannery is Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site, which invites visitors to experience what life was like for the multicultural workers in Steveston’s fishing industry a century ago.

Dad with a sweet tooth

Gift dad some delectable sweet treats from one of our delicious bakeries right here in Richmond. Pick up some croissants from French style bakery Little Fox Bakery or maybe choose something from Wild Sweets® by Domique & Cindy Duby's luxurious chocolate range—you're not stuck for choice here in Richmond that's for sure.

Cycle and a Picnic

Go for a little cruise with dad that takes you around Richmond along the wonderful West Dyke Trail, located right next to the water. There are plenty of places to stop along the route, so why not pack a picnic to refuel and take in those amazing scenic views—you might also be lucky to see some wildlife.

Pick 'n' Mix from one of our Brewery's here in Richmond

This is perfect for those beer loving dads out there. Treat your dad to a combination of his favourite type of beers from a few of our local craft breweries — Monkey 9 Brewing Co., Britannia Brewing Co.’s  or Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks.
