32 Vedder River Rotary Trail

Reviewed By Jeffrey M - Chilliwack, Canada

Great way to get back with nature as you walk along the trail with the river on one side and the bush on the other. Try and stay to one side as there are runners, bikes and strollers rolling along. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. you can walk for miles.

Has a near by climbing observation bird lookout. Has a building with stuffed birds, animals and information desk and info papers. There are also easy paths near a swamp and you will definitely see Blue Heron's and their nests. Very interesting place for young children who can walk or ride their bikes. Safe and educated area. Happytravels.

Bridal Veil Falls Waterfall

Reviewed By lastingmemory - British Columbia, Canada

Easy walk, short 30 min, good tread, like running shoes, little up hill, dirt path. Nice around noon to 3pm as sun shines through water falls (might see rainbow). Terrible parking thou, side of road, on a down hill slant, ditch on one side. Parks BC should improve this area. Outdoor toilets. Near a service station, restaurant and water slides, golf course. Not good for strollers or wheelchairs, must be able to walk okay. Happytravels.

Cultus Lake Water Park

Cultus Lake Water Park is BC's largest Water Park. Located approximately 90 minutes from Vancouver, in the popular and beautiful recreational destination, Cultus Lake. We are a family oriented park and provide our guests with rides for all ages. For those thrill seekers out there, we have some of the most extreme waterslides such as the Valley of Fear, Bazooka Bowls, Speedslide and the Freefall. With all of our great attractions and continued expansion, you need to come out and see for yourself why Cultus Lake Water Park is BC's #1 Water Park. Food is available for purchase, and there are plenty of picnic benches and grassy areas for those of you who are not wanting to waterslide. We also have a selection of hot tubs and spray parks / kiddie areas.

If you like water parks forget the other ones and go to this place. Has something for all ages. Brilliant design. Lots of warm up pools and tons of grass and table space. Don't be afraid to pack food as they allow you to bring it in. If that's not your thing, there are lots of options for you to look at as far as food goes. They also have lots of rental items including BBQ, lockers and umbrellas.
Must go to place for water park lovers.

Cultus Lake

Reviewed By rickt44

Cultas Lake has so much to offer. For the nature lovers there are countless trails. Camping galore private and government. Attractions are many including waterslides, adventure parks with rides. You can rent boats,jet skis, paddleboards and the like. No reason not to keep busy here. There are lots of day use areas as well were family and friends can gather for lunch and a swim or play games on the grassy areas or the beach. Like what you see here there are cabins to rent as well. Really like it here and possibly buy a cabin or weekend retreat. We brought family from Toronto and Calgary here this summer after a family wedding and had so much fun. We now live at the end of the lake and walk our dog daily at Maple Bay. Beautiful.

Dickens Sweets and British Museum

Reviewed By Quinn_Thomson - Chilliwack, Canada

The Dickens Sweets and British Museum is exactly what it sounds like, a British dessert and museum. Although the prices are fairly high, the delicious food more than makes up for it in taste. Good place to go every now and then.

Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park

Reviewed By travelnotebook - Canada

We hiked on the long weekend. There were a lot of hikers on this popular steep trail. The reward at the top is a beautiful striking green tranquil lake. We were dismayed though by the litter of beer cans and trash thoughtlessly thrown around by mindless hikers in such a magnificent, precious Wilderness setting.
