Love the great outdoors but not the cold that comes with being outside at this time of year? It is possible to go birdwatching from your car in Richmond.
In Richmond's Terra Nova area, River Road continues up onto the dyke where a parking area allows you to watch birds or people or the river from the comfort of your car. Head west on River Road as far as you can go, then drive up the lane to the parking area. You won't be disappointed....this is also a great place to watch the sun set on sunny days or planes (YVR is on the other side of the river).
Dramatic views in every direction (even on cloudy days.
If you get out of your car, you will be on the dyke.
