Kanaka Creek Regional Park is a long corridor of protected land that stretches almost 7 miles (11 km) inland from the Fraser River. To explore the park by canoe or kayak, head for the car-top boat launch in a section of the park located near Kanaka and the Fraser’s confluence.
The Bell-Irving Hatchery and fish fence are important parts of Kanaka Creek Regional Park. They support enhancement activities for chum and coho salmon as well as cutthroat trout populations in Kanaka Creek.
The name for the park comes from the term “kanakas” given to Hawaiian labourers who settled in the lower portion of the creek in the late 1800s.
