Walk Box Location
From any direction, find your way to New Westminster and Columbia Street, west of the Patullo Bridge. Travel along Columbia Street to 6th. Street and turn towards the Fraser River to Front Street. On Front Street turn right and continue to the parking lot at the Inn at Westminster Quay. Pay parking in effect seven days a week.
The walk takes you along the business section of Columbia Street and then climbs up to Royal Avenue. The route then goes east along Royal Avenue to enter a trail into Queens Park and to follow the trail and road through the park to exit on 1st. Street at 6th. Avenue. It then criss-crosses an old residential area where many heritage homes can be viewed. The route then takes you eastward to cross Stewardson Way and an overpass leading to the Boardwalk along the Fraser River and your return to the start point. The Paddlewheeler Pub, adjacent to the start point, is our usual pit stop after the walk.

The PTs maintained by the Surrey Trekkers utilize trails in major parks throughout our area. All of these walks do involve some street walking which show the diversity of housing in the area.
In the parks, waterfowl, spawning salmon, wild rabbits, squirrels and coyotes are a common site. Enjoy a coffee or other snack at Esquire’s after your walk or do a little shopping at Tilley’s for their famous line of sports clothing. They appreciate your patronage.
