Boundary Bay Regional Park is the perfect place close to the Tsawwassen ferry terminal to get some fresh air and stretch your legs for the whole family (dog too)! Get out, take a stroll, or enjoy an array of activities surrounded by mountains, ocean, and wetlands in this Delta, British Columbia park.

The choice of activities here almost seems endless, so pack up a picnic and enjoy a great day at this park. Beyond the many activity options (see below), it is a truly fascinating place for wildlife viewing of birds. The park is part of the chain of wetlands on the Pacific Flyway migration route, North America's most popular migration route for birds. How popular? About 1.5 million birds consisting of 225 species from 10 countries use the park every year.

In addition to avian activity, the array of options include:

  • A large oceanside playground.
  • Lots of flat grassy field space for whichever activities you enjoy. Includes a small baseball diamond with fence.
  • Two tennis courts (no backboard).
  • Plenty of picnic tables and benches all around the park.
  • Covered picnic area with hot coal bins for BBQs.
  • An important wetland area for migratory birds; there are protected ponds and marsh area for wildlife viewing.
  • Birds of prey, such as eagles, are a regular occurrence soaring up above, herons dance on the shoreline or patiently waiting for their next catch, and hundreds of other types of birds to see.
  • Live park interpreters may be available in peak-season months to learn about the region.
  • Long beach creates plenty of space for every one and is very expansive when the tide is out with stunning tidal flats.
  • A blue beach mat is laid out in the summer months for ADA accessibility.
  • From mid-April to mid-October, a concession stand is open.
  • Designated trails for horseback riding and bike riding with wonderful ocean views.
  • Photographic dream on a calm sunny day with all of the birds and mirror-like tide pools.
  • All trails have a minor slopes at most and are otherwise flat, wide, groomed gravel.
  • A choice of a few different trail routes through marsh areas can provide some calmness even on the busiest of days here.
