Garry Point

Garry Point is the end of the road in Steveston, where the Fraser River heads out to sea.  I suppose Steveston was originally built on the natural levee along the historic distributary, but now it's simply the bottom left corner of the sprawling city of Richmond.  


Garry Point Park was created with fill (dredged sediment from the river, I assume) and then armored with riprap and shaped to create a series of pocket beaches along the riverside.
