Guided walks set to stroll to Steveston

The city’s 2014 winter/spring walking series makes its way to Steveston later this month.

On Saturday, Jan. 18 at 10 a.m., a free, fun and safe-guided walk takes place along the Railway Greenway trail.

People of all ages are invited to explore this new multi-use pathway that meanders through several neighbourhoods and connects the Fraser River Middle Arm and Steveston waterfront. The meeting place is at the Branscombe House, 4900 Steveston Hwy., at Railway Avenue.

Another walk is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 15 at 10 a.m. in Garry Point Park. This walk loops around Garry Point and continues along the West Dyke, while participants take in views of the Gulf Islands and coastal mountains.

Walks take place rain or shine and are about an hour in length.

Walks include a warm-up, cool-down and stretch. No registration is required.

Participants are asked to arrive 10 minutes before the start of the walk.
