Many people brought their SLR cameras for pictures. It is a great place for sunset. Just remember to bring a jacket just in case if it is windy.

The park is actually quite small and is located at the outfall from the Iona Sewage treatment plant, it is a popular destination for weekend warriors probably because the road to and from the park is very flat. The outfall pipe extends along a causeway...More

We're keen birders and love a nice walk. Iona beach is great for both. There's also a large pond with lots of ducks and a nice trail all around. We were here on a windy day and it was stunning.

This is a gorgeous place to visit if you are looking to find a peaceful spot. Not very well known and a little hard to find. But well worth the effort. Love the water, the breeze and the quiet.

Is this something that's easy to get to if I have a long layover (3-4 hours) at the airport?

Catch the shuttle to the South Terminal and walk along the river there and stop at the Flying Beaver Pub for some good food and then take the shuttle back

I would like to know how the MVPB, and Richmond Mayor Brodie can seriously justify the SR/SS hours of operation applicable to this scenic gem of nature.So far I have been emailed by the Park Staff and listened to Mayor Brodie giving the following reasons. " there are no street lamps" "vandalism" "dumping" "prevent camping" ..all in the interest of public safety. These reasons are simply an outrageous expression of paternalistic authority and give cause to evoke strong public reaction to this denial of basic freedom to roam along an open expanse of shoreline.
