Ahhhh, another truly famous Canadian ride... Richmond is a British Columbian staple in the skatepark world.

The park's most commonly captured feature - at least in the magazines/videos - is the fun box w/ the rail on it. SLAM videos, Canadian tours, and my personal favorite, the SkateCanada videos, feature North-North American talent just killin' this place. In addition to the fun boxes and the ample rails, there's a bucket of various trannie features to conquer including a biggie spine and a bunker full of kicker ramps and banks.

The whole skate scene in BC reminds me of that one punk song: "I'm proud - to be - a Canadian!" If you're stoked on your skills and you've got some pics for us, we'd be glad to make you famous - just send in the footy!

Other cool rides are moments away in places like Whiterock, Aldergrove, Brookswood, Parkgate, Seylynn, Hastings, and many more.

Directions: From Vancouver take Marine Drive southwest to the Arthur Laing Bridge. Cross the bridge and turn off onto Russ Baker Way headed south. Stay on Russ Baker Way and cross over #2 Road Bridge. Make a right [west] on River Road. The park is almost immediately on the left. If you drive past Lynas Lane then you have gone too far.
