Deas Island Regional Park

We went to Deas Island Regional Park today, another gem in the Metro Vancouver Regional Parks system. It was our first time there though we’ve visited many Metro parks for decades.

When you’re driving through the Massey Tunnel, you’re passing underneath this island.

Some interesting history here. . . John Deas was a “free black tinsmith” who established a cannery in 1873 that for a short time was the “leading producer on the Fraser River.”
