With this park located immediately beside Vancouver’s International Airport, not drone this time. Instead we broke out the gimbal to capture the layout. This older park offers some fun and unusual setups, ranging from the row of quarters and bank walls, over to the snake run like setup of transitions and pyramids. If you ever find yourself at YVR on a layover with a few hours to kill, this park is close enough to be an option.
Located on River Rd on Richmond’s northern shore of the Fraser river, this park has parking immediately beside the park accessible from River Rd. To access this park from the airport, take Grant McConnachie Way to one of the three Miller Rd. junctions, take Miller Rd. to Russ Baker Way across the Fraser River turning right on to West Minster Hwy, take a right on Lynas Ln and left on to River Rd, the park will be on your left facing the airport.
