Pitt River Regional Greenway
The first phase of the Pitt River Regional Greenway is now open, stretching 10.2 km west from the waterfront parkland at Harris Landing (at the foot of Harris Road in Pitt Meadows) to Ferry Slip Road. The greenway follows the Fraser and Pitt River dykes, offering excellent opportunities for walking, cycling and bird watching. Enjoy beautiful views of mountains, rivers and working farmland. Watch for wildlife including seal, muskrat, osprey, hawks and ducks.
The trails at Harris Landing are semi-firm fine gravel trails that are at least 1.5 m wide. There is a steep slope (10%) from the parking lot down to the pass accessing the trails. The main trail at Harris landing is 900 m long. The Dyke Trail surface has loose gravel in some sections and is at least 3 m wide. The section from Harris Landing to the industrial area is 3 km long and the section from the industrial area to the Ferry Slip Landing is 5.8 km. The washrooms at Harris Landing are wheelchair accessible.
Additional sections of the trail will be completed over the next 10 years, following the dykes wherever possible. Once complete, the greenway will stretch some 30 kilometres to Grant Narrows Regional Park, linking to a network of municipal trails, the Trans Canada Trail, and Allouette River dyke trails. Planned bridge and airport construction may affect access at times, so please watch for detours and obey all signs.
