The Bell-Irving Hatchery and fish fence are important parts of Kanaka Creek Regional Park. They support enhancement activities for chum and coho salmon as well as cutthroat trout populations in Kanaka Creek.
The name for the park comes from the term “kanakas” given to Hawaiian labourers who settled in the lower portion of the creek in the late 1800s.
Dogs must be on-leash throughout the park. Check local signs for details. Please show courtesy to other park visitors by removing your dog’s droppings.
