Great Place to spend the Day.. Walking along the Squamish Wetlands. Lot to see; Birds,Trees & Mountains. Perfect place for an Artist... Sketch, Draw or Paint your View. Speaking of which... FANTASTIC VIEW of Stawamus Chief Mountain.

Love the way the tall grass whips around, such a beautiful spot. Fun to see the Canadian Geese and their babies. They have taken one side for geese parents and their babies, no one else allowed! Love the old logs, views, beautiful spot.

If you want a quiet picnic spot or a place to watch the kite surfers... this is it. Did not check out the trails but they looked well marked.

We arrived to watch a fisherman pulling in his nets and holding the most fabulous huge salmon and to our delight seals bobbing for salmon treats.
