The Bedford Channel of the Fraser River is known for rowing and paddling activities. The foreshore trail system including the Fort to Fort Trail connecting Brae Island Park all the way to Derby Reach Park is super popular with runners, hikers and cyclists. But the Channel also has been discovered by nature lovers simply for its beautiful landscape. This scenic landscape has inspired a number of artists, like Amanda Jones form Richmond and Lyle Longstaff from Langley. Amanda and Lyle show their paintings at the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery which is dedicated to promoting the beauty and heritage we have right here in our own backyard.
