    Barnston Island is a 1500-acre agricultural island in the Fraser River. There is a free ferry that takes you to the island at the east foot of 104th Avenue in Surrey. When I went in 2016, the parking was free.

    There are many choices for recreation here. You can bike or walk around the island, or just go to one of the ends and back again. You can take cars on the Island, but there are no parking lots (so what’s the point unless you live there ?).

    Distance around island: 10 km
    Distance to west point and back: 3.5 km
    Distance to east point and back: 8.3 km
    Time: varies
    Low point: near sea level
    High point: near sea level
    Elevation gain: minimal
    Location for Parking: 49° 11’ 30.14” by 122° 43’ 35.8” (Google Maps and navigation)
