Here is a sampling of the questions we commonly get, hope you
I am an Event Planner in Richmond and have a client who is wondering if the Cannery can be rented for special events. The client wishes to hold a gala dinner for 100 people in June 2007. Please advise if the site can be rented and what the cost is and if outside catering can be brought in.
Many Thanks Nicky
Yes they do, I am forwarding you to the Marketing Coordinator at the Cannery,
Rob Hart, email@example.com who will help you,
Our family is thinking about coming for the weekend and wonder if you can recommend any hotels or B&Bs...we have 2 young children so I'm thinking the Steveston hotel might be pretty noisy.....thanks for your help!
This should be of help. They all are in Richmond, some close to Steveston.
I wonder if you can help me? Do you have any knowledge of where I might be able to find a family lawyer who is fluent in both English and Japanese? I am looking for someone in the greater Vancouver area.
thank you for any ideas.
I will forward your request to one of the many lawyers I know in Steveston. The community has a very large Japanese heritage and population. He will get back to you.
Do you know of a store in Steveston called Seed to Fashio - I could not find it in the phone book or on the web site but have heard of it! I hope to bring some friends to Steveston in February and would like to have an address.

Thanks so much!

PS ... also ... we just moved from Cloverdale to Richmond (Steveston area). Is there any way we could find out ALL about Richmond , and especially Steveston.
Yes indeed, Steveston is the place to live. I have made it my home for over 25 years. I have added you to our distribution list. I have included the last issue for reference until the next issue in September. Welcome to town,
Hi Sue ...
I am soooooo sorry for the late reply! I guess it all goes with "moving".
We came from 2 acres in Cloverdale, which sold within 2 weeks. Yikes ... we packed like crazy ... and brought all sorts of "stuff" with us. (We are still going through it all!!) Anyways ... I just wanted to thank you so much for adding me to your list!! I am really enjoying reading it! And, yes indeed ... I am really enjoying living in Steveston so far!
Thanks for the welcome!
I just found your steveston website and on the FAQ page found lots of people asking specific questions about Steveston but I can't find anywhere on the site the email address to which to send questions. Can you please provide this email address? I am going to be visiting Vancouver in October and plan on visiting Steveston and have a few questions for them.
Not everyone has email, if you have specific question for certain businesses, please sent along to me and I will forward either email or fax.
My question is dealing with October 10, Thanksgiving. I was wondering if the Canning Museum would be open that day.
I would also like to know if Steveston has any kind of tourism brochure or information they can send me to help plan.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
Yes, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site is open October 10. They have in their racks The Steveston Villager, that should help you. There is also a lot of information on the website, www.steveston.bc.ca that will help you in planning.
This is a Japanese Canadian newspaper. We are trying to find out the full name of the person in the photo attached. She introduced herself to be the daughter of an elderly immigrant Mr. Murao. They welcomed us the member of COPANI conference on July 8th and took us on tour. If there is anyone who knows her full name, please urgently let us know.
Yusuke, Nikkei Voice
I will forward this to the cannery, perhaps they can help you.
Thanks a lot! She might be a member of Japanese Budhist Church in Steveston. They should have regular service on Sundays.
Yusuke, Nikkei Voice
I will forward to the Church.
Thanks a lot! We finally found the person's name. Nikkei Voice apppreciate all of your help.
Good Night, Yusuke
We will be returning to the coast next year - July or August and the last week of March. We are interested in salmon fishing. Could you send us information regarding hiring a guide, with a boat, so that my husband could catch a salmon. He has a lot of equipment, as he used to fish on the Fraser when we lived in Chilliwack.
Are there any fishig resorts in your area?
I supppose that the most important question is when is the best time to catch a salmon (not pink).?
Thanks, and waiting to hear from you.

Hello Myl & Ken,
I will forward your email to Steveston Seabreeze Adventures. They are located in Steveston and their website is available on our website www.steveston.bc.ca , on the right hand side under Kwiklinx, third down if you need more information on sport fishing. They should also be able to answer your other questions as well.
Hello Steveston !
Living in Mission and getting visitors from Germany for 3 weeks I would like to know when the shrimp sale is directly from the boats.
On what day of the week and at what time is the sale.
We want to come with our visitors to Steveston to get fresh shrimps and also want to go for dinner in a nice fish restaurant.
Please, - I am waiting for your response and information on that.
Thank you so much in advance, we will be there soon.
Weekends are best, and restaurants for seafood, try the Steveston Seafood House!
We appreciated receiving a copy of the Steveston Villager recently. We noted the listing of B&B's on page 13 with interest, as we have some family members coming from Manitoba for a visit in September. Location is important in making a choice of a place for them to stay, but I couldn't find even one of those listed in the tekephone directory, to pinpoint location. One alternative of course is to start phoning all of them to check on location and accommodation, but before I launch myself in that direction, is it possible that you could provide a location for the B&B's listed? This would be much appreciated.
Take a look on this page, it lists the B&B's websites. http://www.steveston.bc.ca/newsletter020605.html.
I will be visiting your lovely village in October this year, could you please supply me with any hotels or B&B's in the area.
Adelaide , South Australia
There is a Steveston Hotel KWIKLINX via The Buck and Ear Pub Logo, and the B&B's are listed on the home page “Steveston Community E-Newsletter” page under THE LULU ISLAND B&B ASSOCIATION. Hope you enjoy your stay with us. Please let those businesses know you found them on the Steveston Community Website . There is also B&B's listed in the Business Directory under ACCOMODATIONS.
Hi there; I visited Steveston recently & noticed a new restaurant (right by Blenz Coffee) but cannot for the life of me remember the name of it...I'm sure it starts with a "C". I'm hoping you know!
Here's the info :

Thank you for taking the time to read our e-mail. We are contacting you regarding the history of Steveston Village. In your website there is no mention of the history of the land. We know a lot of people that are very interested in the history of the land. We were trying to find the history of the land on the corner of Trites and Andrews but our search was unsuccessful. We genuinely hope you ponder the thought of adding the history of the land to your website.
We are students at MacNeill Secondary and are currently doing a project regarding the history of the land of Steveston. We were wondering if you have any information that you could send us regarding the subject. Thank you.
Thank you for taking the time to read and, hopefully, respond to our e-mail. Please respond A.S.A.P M & C
M & C,
I will refer you to these sources on the Steveston Website: http://www.steveston.bc.ca/heritage.html. The Steveston Museum and Post Office would probably be your best bet.
My name is Barb Roberts and I am planning the senior's bus trips for the City of Abbotsford. I would like to come out and spend a day at Steveston Village. This won't be until August, but could you suggest an itinerary for us so we could catch some great Steveston sites? There will be a bus of about 45 seniors. In the past we have visited the cannery, so we can do that again or if you can suggest other sites that would be great!
Thanks! I'm open to suggestions!
I have forwarded your request to the Heritage Groups in Steveston and they should be able to help you with schedules and tour information. Hope your Seniors enjoy their visit.
I am coming over in August and have heard about this cruise but cannot find anything on the net about it. Could you please tell me if it still goes and send me any info you have on it .
Thank you so much
Hi Sue Riley,
Please let them know you found them through the Steveston Village Community Website.
Could you tell me if there is a RV Park in Steveston or close by? Thank you.
I think this may help you locate a site. They should have the answers to your question.
RICHMOND RV PARK
After 18 years, the Richmond RV Park will be closing its location at 6200 River Road, Richmond, B.C. (official closing date is December 31, 2004). We have leased our lands from the City of Richmond on a "short-term" basis, two years at a time, and now these lands will be used to build the Speed Skate Oval for the 2010 Olympics. The City of Richmond has assured us of the importance to maintain an RV park in Richmond and said they would help us find land to relocate. At present, this is ongoing, so we cannot tell you if, when or where we will be moving. You can keep track of our progress via our web site: www.richmondrvpark.com . We don't expect there will be much new to report before the end of January We have enjoyed operating this campground for the past 18 years. If you have to work for a living, there couldn't be a better business than an RV park. The majority of travelers are on holidays and you get to meet a great group of people. We think RVers are some of the friendliest people in the world. We have been fortunate to develop many lasting friendship through our business. We sincerely thank everyone for their patronage and support over these 18 years. Kirk, Brett, John & Sharon Nasadyk RICHMOND RV PARK & CAMPGROUND
We are planning a trip to Richmond in 2005 to see the tall ships but can't find any web sites with any info on it. Can you help me? When is is to occur ? About how many ships are going to be there. We have always gone to the Vancouver Indy, but now that thats gone, we want to see the ships.
Sorry, our City decided not to hold them in 2005. They will be in Vancouver and Victoria. I suggest you check with Tourism Vancouver for more information.
Could you please forward t his request to someone who could reply to us about staying in Steveston at Christmas. We would fly into Vancouver Int'l. correct? Do we need a car to get to Steveston or is there another mode of transportation from the airport. Please recommend some b & b's. Also would appreciate a list of activities over the holidays (e.g. Dec. 23-Dec. 30, 2004 approx).
I am forwarding this to some of our B&B's and they will be in touch. I believe some of the B&B will shuttle. The list of activities are on the website, Calendar of Events, and is updated monthly.
I am hoping you can help me out. I was in Steveston this summer, and there is a fabulous world music store tucked away in a little corner, on I would say somewhere along 2nd or 3rd avenue. But I can't remember the name of it, and I trying to pass along the message of what a great store it it. It is owned by a Latin American woman. Do you know what store I am talking abou, and what the name of it is? A contact number would be great too.
Here we go! Please let them know you found them though the Steveston Community Website.

My name is Graham and I live in Kamloops. On a recent visit to Steveston I bought some things from a small down town store that specialized in all things English in the food line. I think it was located on a corner if I remember correctly. Anyway I would like their address (e-mail) or whatever you can give me as I want to get in touch to buy some more things.
Here is the only information I have. The phone is also a fax. Please let them know where you found them, the Steveston Community Website.

Thanks for stopping
by the website. I am forwarding your request to the Steveston Community Society
who actually organizes Salmon Festival. They will be able to help you.
I am an MBA
student at Royalroads University working on my MBA. My current assignment relates
to the Oak Bay BIA and how to be successful. I'm wondering if you can share
any ideas on what has worked and not worked in terms of your experience with
Steveston. Your insight would be very helpful.
Thanks so much!
I have worked on a BIA in 1986 for Steveston Revitalization, and tried to put
two subsequent BIA's but they failed. If you can be specific on your questions
I will try and answer them for you of what I can remember. You have asked a
lot of good questions, I will try to give you a short synopsis:
What are the
keys to success in drawing people to a business area through a business association
of some form? What key roles should an association play?
I am not sure I understand the question. The key to a business association is
power to influence, in our case Richmond Council. It allowed us the power to
defeat the city's intent to introduce meter parking. It gave us leverage to
have Steveston decorated by the city at Christmas and to participate in the
Banner Beatification program. An association allow business to belong to something
that help promote the town as a whole, and reduces individual advertising costs
by co-op ads.
What are the
benefits for joining the BIA from your perspective?
It helps to
build a stronger business community and opens up the advertising and promotion
of the area to media's such as TV and Radio. A BIA would put in place a full
or part time coordinator to complete these initiatives.
Any negatives as
There are as many negative as positive effect of a successful BIA.. The assessment
was based on a per sq. foot. and hence the problem. Our two BIA failed, as they
did not have the support of the required number of landlords owning the majority
of the available space, a lot who were absentee. The BIA would have increased
property taxes, which would have filtered down to the tenants. Most of the businesses
were small and felt they could not afford an increase in their rents. The landlord
loses when he has an empty space and increased taxes to pay. The larger business,
looses, such as a lumber yard, when they have no tenants to offset the increase.
Do you operate
under a terms of reference or charter? Any other keys to success?
Business Association operated as a not for profit registered association.
The key is to
have the business community spearhead the project. Gathering all the knowledge,
answers to the questions that can be expected. We had Coordinators from other
successful BIA programs; such as Mount Pleasant, New West Quay and Gastown speak
to our Executive.
business Association, through money seeded by the City and visionary businesses
to hire a company to do the initial contacting of the business and make the
presentations. It was, I feel, a mistake to bring in outside organizers to a
community this small there was a lot of criticism and scepticism and some mistrust.
Steveston is a very small community, sometimes too small. There was, as usually,
a faction of businesses in town that thought this was too slick a presentation
and no newcomer was going to shove this 'thing' (BIA) down their throats. The
town was canvassed as Gastown would have been, but I believe it needed the old
timers who people trusted to do the canvassing. It takes a great deal of effort
on volunteers to make it work. We have a different class of business owner now,
the time may come again, that we will try another BIA, we'll see. I am close
to retirement and don't have the energy it took 10 years ago. Steveston can't
even get organized to create a new Steveston Business Association started again.
No one wants to give his or her time or dollars or even get involved. There
have been rumblings, but no takers.
Hello. My name
is Yosef and I am starting up a vending operation. My menu is flexible, but
I have the capacity the vision and the resources to do an all-organic soup,
cappuccino and smoothy cart. I live in East Van, so I would easily be able to
pull my trailer out to Steveston everyday or just on the weekends.
I would love
to hear from you if you have any information that might help me.
I don't think
that Steveston would be the right venue for you cart. The City of Richmond has
bylaws regarding vending carts on its streets and parks. They are strictly enforced
not only buy by-law enforcement officers but in Steveston, the businesses themselves.
Every business in Steveston, in particular restaurants and food services (of
which we have over 75 establishments) would not appreciate you taking their
business from them. They work hard 12 months a year, paying taxes and licences
to carry on business in our community. We are a tightly knit business community
and suggest you look elsewhere for your vending cart business. The Steveston
Community Society may be able to help you on their ground during Salmon Festival.
As for your
band, you will have to contact the individual property managers in order to
get their permission to perform.
They are amenable to live entertainment during the summer months.
I'm a Richmond
ex-pat living in the UK, and I've recently heard that the apartments at Garry
Point are now some sort of resort, possibly for holiday rentals. I can't find
anything on your web site or elsewhere about it, but thought you might be able
to provide me with some info? Looking to visit family in June but need to find
somewhere to stay (with kitchen).
I don't think
that you could call Steveston a resort village just yet. I don't know of any
apartments at Garry Point for rent. Depending on how long you are going to stay,
you might consider one of our Bed and Breakfasts, if interested I could put
you in touch with some. For a longer stay, like a few months, maybe some of
the Realtors on the Steveston Website might be able to steer you to some. I
will post this on the web, and if anyone who knows different, they can get in
touch with me, firstname.lastname@example.org
and I, in turn will be in touch with you.
- Good job!
to point out an error in one of the answers to a question asked by a customer.
She wanted to know when the fish sales float was open for business. The answer
stated was weekends, as most of the fleet fishes during the week and fish is
available primarily on weekends. Please correct that to 7 DAYS A WEEK. Granted,
more boats arrive on Sat & Sun. but there are boats with freezer that sell
some of the very finest, highest quality fish available at the docks. It's common
practice, for an example, for a "fresh boat" to fish on a Monday salmon
opening and they will keep their product on ice until that following Sat. to
sell. Whereas a FAS (frozen at sea) boat will sell the number one, export grade
product, which is an extremely high quality product, EVERYDAY of the week.
discourage customers from visiting Steveston during the week days. I'm sure
the local business owners would
Thanks for the
heads up. The last thing I would want to do is discourage customers during the
week if there are boats selling fish. My information originally came from one
of the businesses on the waterfront many years ago. I will post this to the
website the next update. Thanks for the kind words on the site. Appreciate the
feedback! I will also post this in the E-Newsletter which is sent out monthly
(next one in February 04) to businesses and residents in Steveston.
I'm curious as to the actual road boundaries for the "area of Steveston"
not just the Village of Steveston. Can you point me in the right direction?
Thank you in advance for your help.
It is usually
assumed that the boundaries are from Williams Rd. South and Gilbert West. If
you check with Elections Canada or Elections BC their boundaries are different.
I am not sure
I have the right link, what I need is a guide of Steveston. I would like to
visit or possibly relocate. I would like info on jobs, housing and I would really
appreciate any information you could send me.
I would recommend
you check our business directory and contact the Real Estate agents listed for
advice or referral.
Some time ago,
I heard an interview on CBC radio about a gal who has reconstructed her Japanese
grandmother's garden. I wrote her name phonetically "Linda Ohala" and
I thought she had written a book called "Obatjan's Garden". I remember
her saying that Obatjan was the Japanese word for grandmother. Could you give
me more information on this? If there is a book, I am interested in purchasing
Thank you. Anola
Below is the
answer to your question from our Steveston historian, Edith Turner:
You are right
- as usual, Sue. It certainly sounds like a reference to the Murakami family
history at Britannia except it should be "Linda Ohama" and "Obaachan's
Garden". Linda produced an excellent video by the same name - Britannia
used to sell it in the rebuilt Murakami house on site. Get Anola to talk to
Anne at Britannia at 604-718-8038 to see if it's still available or, now that
she'll have the right name, she could simply check a library or the Internet.
I don't have an e-mail address for Britannia but there probably is one. Marilyn
Clayton was working at Britannia at the time and was instrumental in getting
the garden reconstructed. I remember that once it was finished, the whole Murakami
clan, including Linda Ohama and her aged grandmother came for a huge reunion
lunch and official opening of the garden. I did a walk for them. The grandmother,
Mrs. Murakami, died in December 2002, aged 104!
A few summers
ago, I used to work at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery. On our day off, one of my
co-workers and myself had high
tea just a few streets away from there. She was a Steveston native, and she
told me of a couple of places where one could
have high tea. Unfortunately, I don&'tt remember the name of the place
we went to, or any other place where high tea is
Can you help
me with this? Thanks!!!
There are two
places in Steveston for high tea, The British Home on the corner of Moncton
and No. 1 Road and The Cottage Tea
Room on 2nd Ave. between Moncton and Bayview, enjoy. Please let them know you
found them by the Steveston website,
thank you for
your quick response. I apppreciate.
I just had a
look at the mentioned web-page. The school is placed in the middle of Richmond.
I wonder if there is any closer
school to Steveston. What really is important is the quality of school/teachers
and the other children.
I guess Kaya
(5 years old) will start preschool and Lene (3 years old) kindergarden. Can
you give me some further
information? I am caring so much about this matter and know how important it
will be for our children.
Maybe you will
find some time again to reply.
Thanks in advance,
There are 12
schools in the Steveston Catchment area, from elementary to secondary schools.
Steveston has very high calibre
schools for all grades. Kindergarten starts at 5-6 and preschool 3-5yrs,
Hope this helps
I visited Richmond,
B.C. in April 2003 and spent a most enjoyable spring day in Steveston. My wife
and I stopped into every
store in the village, made some purchases, had lunch and dinner, then returned
to our hotel.
I am looking
for the name of one store that had novelties and candies, etc. from England.
A friend of ours is going to
Vancouver soon and would like to go to Steveston and purchase some English candy,
etc. at this store.
Would you have
the name of this store and/or any other that would have what she would be looking
I think the
name of the store you are looking for is British Home and it is on the corner
of No. 1 Road and Moncton.
Here are the
particulars, let them know you found them through the Steveston website.
and Ray Carter
saw a copy of the "Steveston Community Calendar" (Summer 2003, Vol.
13, No. 2). The arial photo of Steveston on
the front/back cover of the magazine has a very nice picture of Steveston -
including the Imperial Landing area that we have
recently moved to.
Is it possible
to acquire a electronic copy (jpg, tiff, etc.) of the above mentioned arial
photo for personal use?
Welcome to Steveston

As a former
BC'er (Vancouver 1990-1996) your website brings back fond
memories of the coast and the quaintness of Steveston.
am living in Calgary and writing a novel that uses Steveston as
setting for several chapters. I wanted to know where I could get pamphlets
or any written material on the history of Steveston - specifically
shipbuiling and fishing. In particular, I want to know where fishing boats
were made and how (there is a fishing boat used as a writer's studio in
Banff at the Arts Centre from Steveston built circa 1980). Does the
Britannia Heritage Shipyard offer any classes to the public on how ships
were made? Any additional info available through the Steveston Museum would
be helpful too. My last question - Are there any organizations that offer
instruction in salmon fishing, or would a 'tourist' just have to go out on a
chartered fishing trip to see how it's done?
Thank you for
your help. I look forward to hearing from you.
There are several ways to glean the information you are looking for. You
can contact Britannia email@example.com and yes they have
classes on boat building. You can contact firstname.lastname@example.org at the Gulf of
Georgia Cannery NHS for fishing information and email@example.com for
the Steveston Museum. There are several good reference books that should be
available at your library, Salmonopolis, The Steveston Story, Corklines and
Canning Lines, Sutebusution: a Japanese Village on the West Coast, Richmond
Child of the Fraser. Love to know about your book when it is finished.
Just thought I'd
let you know that the e-mail request you got from the Calgary writer for information
about that boat in
Banff got passed along to me from Graham - such an effective network we have
here in Steveston. Ralph knew the boat and the
owner so, after talking to him last night (and inviting him to come for lunch
on Sunday), we passed along his phone number to
the writer. She can contact him directly. None of this would have happened though
without your web site - ain't technology
Unfortunately we haven't visited Steveston recently but when last we did,
there was a very good Japanese store in the area.
Is it still in Steveston and if so, what is it's name please?
Thanks, in advance.
I think the
store you are looking for is Nikaido Gifts. I have forwarded
this email to them.
is Shirley, long time no talk! What have you doing lately? You know, I like
to bring my friend to
steveston and walk around, but many stores close on Sunday, that's so annoying..........I
mean, we are both busy on weekdays
and stores close at night..........I think stores should open on Sunday too!
If the store owners want to take a rest for one
day, they can close stores early, but still, is more convenient for people to
come to steveston on Sunday because many people
still have to work on Saturday.........
can you suggest this idea to the stores owners? Thanks very much!!
I will post
this to the site, maybe some businesses will reconsider.
Can you tell me more about the Fish Boat Festival?
When is it happening (Time schedule)?

best place to ask?
Right here is the right place to ask!

nice web site you have.
I was wondering I have some visitor from another province coming here and I
want to take them you your area and wanted to go to the docks to pick up fish
from the boat by the water and don't know what time would be the best to do
that. Could you help me and my guest on the issue?
Thank you for your help.
Hope you enjoy your visit. I have been told the early bird catches the worm
and is best for the weekend. The boats are out fishing during the week and sell
their catch on the weekends at Fisherman's Wharf, at the end of 2nd avenue.
Dear sirs, First
I would like to say how much I love Steveston and we visit there whenever we
can. It has been a while though lately because of one thing and another. My
question is this. There used to be a British goods store that sold british foods
and newspapers and it was across the road from a wonderful seafood restaurant.
I think it was Moncton street. I wondered if you could be so kind as to give
me the names of the store and the restaurant.

you've enjoyed your visits. See you soon!
for all your help Monday. I want to ask you if you had been to the new cafe
beside the McDonalds...I think it used
to be One Stop or something like that. They sell soups, Panini etc and we went
there for lunch. It was fabulous, they are
very nice people and the food was better than homemade! Just thought I'd let
you know in case you plan to mention them in
'New businesses'. Not that I'm a food critic but I'm happy to see some new,
fresh, lunch options available here.
the shop is called Beans and Beyond and I've heard nothing but raves!
how often the steveston booklet(or business directory) is published? is it monthly,
or seasonally? I would like to know when I should come to pick up a new edition.
Also, is there a newsletter that I can subscribe to for Steveston? How often is it sent out? I'm happy to see some new stores
opening in steveston!!
Villager is published seasonally (Summer and Fall issues) and the E-Newsletter

Hello -- I hope
you can help me -- I will be coming to the westcoast within the week, each time
I come I have meant to visit Steveston because I have
heard that there is a restaurant in the village that has the best fish and chips
around --- but I do not know the name of it --- can you help me with the name
and address of this place. thanks
I could be a
bit bias. There are a few really great fish and chip shops.During the sunny
days there is Pajo's which is a floating take out at thefoot of third avenue
and at Garry Point Park with great outdoor ambience. There is also Sockeye City
Dinner on the Boardwalk at Steveston Landing at the foot of 2nd Avenue more
up scale with indoor and outdoor seating. The Steveston Hotel also has great
fish and chips in their coffee shop. There is also Dave's Fish and Chips on
Moncton St. closer to 3rd avenue and of course there is Jake's at Bayview Quay
also on the Boardwalk at the foot of 2nd Avenue,with indoor and outdoor seating.
Great views form almost all. Hope this helps.

Would you have a guide to send me by snail mail on

I am planning to visit Steveston, Richmond this Summer in early July and I want
to charter a fishing boat for 14 persons for 1/2 day fishing adventure.

license, the company which can provide such fishing tour???? Can you recommend
a reliable company that can provide such services?????
Dear I, Steveston
Seabreeze Adventures is a reliable tour operator based in Steveston.
in knowing when salmon (particularly sockeye or Chinook) are for sale at the
docks in Steveston.
Dear John, Your
best bet is to check with the Steveston Harbour Authority, 272-5539 They should
be able to help you. There are not very many openings for salmon and they hand
the moorage at Fishermans Wharf.
been in Steveston for going on some forty odd years and its about time I did
something about it, also am a fish and chip nut and we hear great things about
PaJo's . But my question to you is where do I park my RV, don't see any mention
of a campground in your add, is there one not to far away?
Pajo's has two
locations in Steveston. One at Garry Point Park and the other at the foot of
third Avenue. Depending on which month you come will depend on whether they
are open yet or not. Pajo's has a website, which is linked I think to Tourism
Richmond. As far as parking while visiting, there is a very large lot for RV's
on Chatham Street, starting at 4th Avenue.
have any overnight campgrounds, but there is one in Richmond on River Road,
sort of across the river from the Airport. Depending on how you come it is marked
and failing that Tourism Richmond has a website that may be of help.
My family and
I just returned from Steveston/Richmond. We spent a week visting relatives that
I had never met before, seeing the tall ships and its events and shopping and
eating at many of your wonderful shops. When my cousin took us to the Japanese/Steveston
Cultural Centre, we notice the park's entrance with bricks. We were wondering
if you could tell us who to contact/e-mail regarding a purchase of a brick.
Thank you for
any help you can give us.
