    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!
