Pitt Meadows, BC Canada

Pitt Lake is the second-largest lake in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. About 53.5 square kilometres in area, it is about 25 km long and about 4.5 km wide at its widest. It is one of the world's relatively few tidal lakes, and among the largest. In Pitt Lake, there is on average a three foot tide range; thus Pitt Lake is separated from sea level and tidal waters during most hours of each day during the 15 foot tide cycle of the Pitt River and Strait of Georgia estuary immediately downstream.

The lake's southern tip is 20 km upstream from The Pitt River confluence with the Fraser River and is 40 km east of Downtown Vancouver.

The community of Pitt Meadows occupies the marshy lowland at the southern end of the lake, some of which has become drained and is known as the Pitt Polder.

Just southwest of the lake is the community of Port Coquitlam, which is across the Pitt River from Pitt Meadows. At the north end of the lake is a locality named Alvin, which is a transport and shipping point for logging companies and their employees.

The Upper Pitt, meaning the valley upstream from the lake, is considered one of BC's best fly-fishing rivers and one of its best steelhead streams.

The lake is popular with boaters and canoeists, but is prone to heavy winds and rains as well as big waves (due to its great depth). There is a destination golfing resort in the Pitt Polder area called Swan-e-set. Also at the south end of Pitt Lake, adjacent to the Polder, is Pitt Lake Indian Reserve 5.

Pitt Meadows, BC Canada

Located on the north side of Pitt Meadows, Grant Narrows Park is a wilderness area and wildlife habitat with a large patch of protected marshland. The marsh and surrounding wetlands are reportedly home to more than 200 species of birds and waterfowl. The main trail starts out as a wide gravel walkway with water on each side, then changes course and becomes a narrow and wooded muddy path dotted with cattails, pond weeds and blackberry bushes.

There are countless opportunities anywhere along the trail system to view wildlife and the wide variety of vegetation and plants in the marsh. Along the way, you're likely to come upon trumpeter swans, herons, beaver dams and flocks of fire-engine-red hummingbirds. For the best views, climb one of the wooden observation towers.
