This weekend I posted a photo on Twitter of a lake in Surrey (Green Timbers) and after several people asked me where it was located, I decided it was time to highlight some of Metro Vancouver’s lakes in a post.
These urban watering holes provide recreation options for the whole family. There aren’t many suited for swimming but the natural settings and marshland are great for bird-watching, fishing, biking, hiking or an afternoon stroll.
10. Rice Lake Trails, hiking. No swimming.
I omitted a few lakes (like Coquitlam Lake watershed) as they are not open to the public. In case I missed any though, please feel free to leave a suggestion in the comments.
