Locals Know:

Eric Moolin from CL Simplex knows where to find great views of the Fraser River

Something I usually show visitors is Brunette-Fraser Regional Greenway. It’s a great place to run, or just relax and watch the River. Most people just go to the Quay, but Brunette-Fraser is a great way to enjoy the River as well!

​Sapperton Landing, where the Brunette River meets the mighty Fraser, is rich in history. It has been the site of a First Nation village, a Royal Engineers’ camp; the first colonial legislature of British Columbia and the BC Penitentiary. The only remaining building to reflect the site’s history is the BC Penitentiary Wharf Warehouse (ca. 1930s) where food, wood, coal, supplies and prisoners passed through.
