INFORMATION: There are three routes.


1. Minoru Park & Middle Arm Dyke 6k & 10k (rating 1B)
Start PointInside The Mall, Old Navy, Richmond Centre Mall, 6551 No. 3 Rd

Description: Walk goes through Minoru Park and some quiet residential neighbourhoods on our way to the Middle Arm Dyke system that protects the city of Richmond. This part of the dyke pathway is amazing, looking over to the airport, watching planes leave and arrive, very often getting to see row boats, dragon boats or sculls in the Fraser River, walking past the Richmond Oval, and the UBC Boathouse which is a fully floating facility.

2. Three Parks 6k & 10k (rating 1B)
    Start Point: Inside The Mall, Old Navy, Richmond Centre Mall, 6551 No. 3 Rd

    Description: Route goes on city streets & through three parks: the new Garden City Lands, Paulik Neighbourhood Park & Garden City Community Park & Arboretum. The 6k walk will only go to two parks.

3. Shell Road Trail 6k & 10k  (rating 1B)

    Start Point: South Arm Community Centre, 8880 Williams Rd V7A 1G6

    Description: A flat (as all Richmond walks are) relaxing walk in Central Richmond. Getting to walk in Garden City Community Park is always a treat with the lagoons and waterfowl to enjoy. The 10K route saves the best for last as we walk a few kilometres on the Shell Road Trail. This rural trail, hidden amongst some interesting neighbourhoods, is a calming walk on a tree-lined (really a tunnel of trees) trail.
