About the Park
One of the most tranquil and inspiring spots in the area, Fraser River Park achieves a pleasing balance between natural and designed settings. Large rolling lawns are perfect for picnicking or flying a kite, and beautiful views of the Fraser River are available from the boardwalks that cross restored tidal marshes and snake between stands of poplar and alder trees. Crab apple and Nootka rose lining the pathways are reminders of these plants that farmers of the area once planted along the Fraser River dykes to protect their land from flooding.

History
This park was named by the Park Board in 1985 and officially opened in 1986. The original interpretive kiosk was donated by the North Fraser Harbour Commission as a City of Vancouver Centennial gift to the Park Board. The kiosk and panels that describe the nature, ecology, industry and history of the area were updated and refurbished in 2010.
