Outdoor Activities in Richmond, BC

A world of adventure, all in one city.

Richmond's parks and trails are open, with physical distancing guidelines in place.

Richmond’s extensive trail network makes the city easy and fun to explore on foot or by bike—over 80 kilometres (50 miles) of discovery await. Thanks to generally flat terrain and beautiful scenery along most of the trails, Richmond’s most popular routes give you a great opportunity to sightsee while keeping active.

Many trails connect to local parks and beaches, which are great places to keep an eye out for wildlife—namely migratory birds, many of whom travel thousands of kilometres to winter here. If you're looking to see something bigger, consider heading out on the water for a whale watching tour

Looking for more ideas? Our golf courses are open year-round, and if you like fishing, a charter from Steveston or a visit to any of Richmond’s fishing piers, platforms, and floats ought to give you your fill. And if geocaching is your thing, be sure to check out Richmond's official GeoTour program, which consists of two geocache series, along with the numerous other geocaches hidden throughout the city by other geocachers.
