Travel Tips for Richmond

Picking blackberries in August

by Carmanah

Wild blackberries grow in abundance in rural parts of Richmond, especially along the dyke trails that follow along the Fraser River. In August the berries ripen and are available for picking. It's not abnormal to see people picking bucket loads of blackberries along the side of roads or along the trails. As long as the blackberries aren't growing on private property, anybody is allowed to pick them. Just be aware that the blackberries grow into gigantic bushes and they're covered in very large thorns. If you plan to pick blackberries, wear long sleeves!

The city where I was born and raised

by Carmanah


Richmond, British Columbia, Canada
Location: 49° 10' North, 123° 08' West
Population: 174,461 (2006 Census)
Incorporated: 1879


I seem to surprise people when I tell them that I was born in Richmond.

"People are actually from Richmond?!" is the typical response.

True, Richmond tends to be seen as a place of recent immigration, but little else. Most people around Vancouver associate the city as a bland and boring suburb of concrete stripmalls and elaborate Hong Kong shopping plazas. And since the 1980's, Richmond's population has become over 60% Asian, predominantly from affluent Hong Kong immigrants. As a result, a locals find Richmond synonymous with being Chinese. So I have become a bit of an exception to the modern Richmond stereotype.

Not only was I born and raised here, but so were my parents, which means all my grandparents lived here. Even a good chunk of my great grandparents lived in Richmond, so Richmond and me go waaaaay back.
