140 communities of metro Vancouver: Boundary Bay

We'll visit all 140 communities that make up Metro Vancouver (in alphabetical order). Today it's the wetlands of Boundary Bay.

This is another democratic walk. Now you can have your voice heard and have a say in what kind of walk this will be. When you RSVP, vote (in the conversation area below) on what pace and what length of walk that you would like.

For those who like: parks, trails, birds, bays, visiting distant Metro Vancouver communities 

Starting Time: start meeting up at 1:15 - walk starts when C89 bus arrives

Getting there: C89 bus gets here at 1:17. Transit calls this stop "500 Block".  

Cancelled If: it won't be

Pace: Your vote! Would you like:

     Slow (no walker left behind): if sightseeing but not exercise is important to you. We can stop for picture taking or any other walking activities (berry picking is NOT a walking activity!).

     Normal (5km/hr) - normal walking pace for some sightseeing and some exercise. One washroom break and some time for picture taking too.

      Brisk (6km/hr) - for you if getting a good workout is the most important thing. Washroom break only.  

      Variable  - first third = "no walker left behind", 2nd third = normal, last third = brisk 

Distance: Your vote! 10 1/3 km or 15 km (see "The end of the walk") 

Time: 1 3/4 to 4 hours (depends on your vote)  

Elevation Gain: flat

Washroom Break: Boundary Bay Park

The end of the walk: Your vote! Boundary Bay Airport or Highway 99. The advantage of the airport is that the walk isn't so long. The disadvantage is that there is only a Community bus here (connecting Ladner to Scottsdale) so it'll take a long time to get home. At Highway 99 the walk is longer but there is an express bus here that will get you to Bridgeport Station in 19 minutes.

    Looks like Lynn and her "+1" are the only ones going (besides me) so they will have to decide on pace and length of walk.

      OK Dave see you soon

    I may join you but would drive as it's way too complicated to get to Boundary Bay Park from Burnaby Hgts by public transport. If I can give anyone else a ride along the way I'd be willing to do that. Also, I prefer no longer than a 2-hr walk

    I might have trouble determining the pace and distance tomorrow morning because I'm not sure if Dianne and Liz have got their car pooling arrangement working. And Lynn didn't vote.
    Could Dianne and/or Liz let me know what their plans are?
    Thanks.

      I haven't heard anything so, sorry, I will pass on this walk, hope to get the next one if not too far.

    I will only come if the walk ends at the airport where it starts as I live in Ladner and will be driving there

      The walk starts at Boundary Bay Park but see the note below: Liz is willing to leave a car at each end of the walk so that you can drive.

      Wow that would be great

      Taking transit from Boundary Bay Airport to Boundary Bay Park is also complicated. You'll need to turn back half way. Much better would be if 2 people have cars and you leave one at the airport - then you can walk all the way.

      September 2, 2013

    • Liz H.

      well, if anyone else on the walk has a car, I'd be willing to try your suggestion above (leave a car at each location)

      September 2, 2013

  • Dianne

    As I live in Ladner, Boundary Bay is better.

    August 31, 2013

  • Dianne

    I vote for a normal pace (5 k/hour)

    August 31, 2013

  • Dave S

    I think I would prefer the long walk to Highway 99 with a variable speed pace.
