What's It Like To Live In Steveston?

Welcome to Steveston Living, where we spotlight the Steveston lifestyle and real estate. If you live near the water, the screech of seagulls, or the low bellow of the fog horn on foggy days are common

sounds. Or the sight of a fishing boat, as it slowly powers up river, these are the sights and sounds for those living near the waterfront and elsewhere in Steveston. Add to this the fresh smell of a light sea breeze and Steveston pretty well stimulates all the senses.

Steveston, being on the southwest corner of Lulu Island, is at the end of most roads in the area and thus traffic is not as crazy as elsewhere in Richmond. The village seems to have a calming effect on drivers, as they slowly drive up and down our streets, even yielding to pedestrians. A little bit of yesteryear, just minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Richmond, BC and just a little bit more to cosmopolitan Vancouver.

Steveston has the longest history—120 years—and the strongest identity of all Richmond neighborhoods. Starting off as a farming and fishing community in 1887, then through the

fishing boom of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, to today's gentrification, Steveston still holds on to its uniqueness. Unique in the entire Lower Mainland, as Steveston is still very much a West Coast fishing village on the edge of the bustling, multicultural city of Richmond.

Almost since inception, Steveston was a multicultural village with new immigrants flocking to town for the plentiful jobs in the fisheries. The Europeans, Chinese and Japanese all making their marks on Steveston. The Japanese, in particular, have left their mark to this day, and are still one of the most prevalent ethnic communities within Steveston, hence the Steveston Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, Steveston Martial Arts Centre, Britannia Heritage Shipyards, which includes the Cannery Dwelling, Native Building, Japanese Duplex, Murakami Boat Works, Murakami House, Richmond Boat Works, Seine Loft Building #9 and Ship Yard Building #18. Also, you will find Kuno Garden—a Japanese style memorial garden at Garry Point Park—a Japanese Fishermen's statue at the east end of the Imperial Landing Trail and Railway Avenue and many Japanese street names.

Today, Steveston is experiencing yet another rush... not for jobs this time, but for land, or more appropriately, homes and condos with a view and close to the village. With the demise of our last working fish processing plant, BC Packers, waterfront land that had not been open to the public for over a century was now available. Developers are quickly building more and more townhouses, condominiums and small homes, and professionals with young families, empty nesters and retired alike are finding Steveston the ideal, if not somewhat expensive, community to set down roots.

With amenities, like the new riverfront Imperial Landing Trail, and older dyke trails further east and west, is it any wonder that people love living here. Couples and families on their bikes or on foot, love these amenities, as do their dogs. There's the Steveston Community Centre, the Steveston Community Park featuring a great playground and waterpark for the kids. Then there's Bike Terrain Park for BMX and mountain bikers east of the village at the foot of No. 2 Road at Dyke Road. There's parks to enjoy sports and Garry Point Park, a premier location for kite flying, or just having a picnic or barbecue. There's even beaches, picnic tables, benches to relax and admire the view, as well as a 2.5 km limestone path around the park meeting up with Richmond's

extensive dyke trail system. There's also plenty of shopping and dining opportunities, with some of the finest gift shops, art galleries, restaurants and cafes in Richmond. If you're into fresh seafood, then Steveston's the place, whether you buy directly from the fishers to cook yourself, or chose to enjoy at one of Steveston's many seafood-serving restaurants. For fish and chip lovers, well, get ready to die and go to heaven... The fish and chips here are fantastic.

Steveston housing ranges from social housing to well maintained single-family homes, and large condominium complexes to condos above village shops. Their's strong growth here in condominium complexes, large and small, as well as townhouses or small houses on equally puny lots.

All-in-all, Steveston's a great place to live.
