Iona Beach Regional Park

Located where the Fraser River meets the sea, this regional park is known for its long beach. It is home to a rare community of sand dune plants and sits amid the Pacific Flyway - making it a mecca for thousands of migrating birds.
Iona Beach Regional Park has a number of places to go walking - both for short strolls and long walks, including:
- Iona Jetty stretches for 4 km and features a trail on top that is open to walkers and leashed dogs as well as a lower trail that is open to walkers, cyclists, and dogs on- or off-leash. Wind shelters can be found at the 1.3 km and 2.5 km marks.
- Pathways circle the north and south ponds and can be great places to do some birdwatching.
- The beach stretches from the Iona Jetty to the North Jetty. Walk as much or as little of the 3.4 km to take in big views of the ocean, distant islands, and mountains.
