Garry Point Park
So many of Richmond's scenic photographs are taken at Garry Point Park! This park is a major hub of entertainment, sights and enjoyment. Located within GPP is Kuno Garden, a Japanese style memorial garden. The park is also set right on the water, so shore birds, beautiful sunsets and sunrises are frequent sites at Garry Point Park. GPP is located at the Southwest corner of Richmond between Chatham and Moncton Street on 7th Avenue. http://www.richmond.ca/parks/parks/SigParks/parkinfo/park.aspx?ID=17
