Mud Bay Park

Parking Washrooms Trails Natural Area Wildlife Viewing

Mud Bay Park offers a scenic walk and a chance to see shorebirds and waterfowl in Canada's most valued Important Bird Area: Boundary Bay. The nature trail is nearly 3 kilometres long and takes about 1.5 hours to walk. Please note that the shoreline trails are closed to dogs, bikes, and horses from October 15 to April 15 to minimize impacts to sensitive shorebird habitat.

Park Features

The park's most spectacular feature is its view of Boundary Bay, which transforms drastically at different times of day. At high tide, seals and loons can be seen in the waves. At low tide, the table is set for a shorebird's favourite feast when mudflats and eelgrass meadows are exposed to the air. Each year, hundreds of thousands of birds flock here for the great food and great company - some of them may even be heading to or from South America!

Make a day out of your visit to Mud Bay Park and explore further! Continue along the Dyke Trail to follow 20 kilometres of shoreline all the way to Boundary Bay Regional Park in Delta.
