Anglers and crabbers use the dock at Belcarra as an excuse to spend some time in the outdoors. Water quality is often suspect, especially for its effect on bottom feeders, but this doesn't keep fishermen from enjoying their catch.
From Burnaby or Coquitlam it will take you 30 minutes to drive around the east end (Port Moody) of Burrard Inlet to reach Belcarra Regional Park and buntzen Lake Recreation Area. Follow Hastings Street east through Burnaby to its junction with the Barnet Highway, then east to Port Moody. As you enter Port Moody, turn left onto St. John's Street; six stoplights later, turn left again onto well-marked Ioco Road. Ioco Road soon turns left at an intersection marked by a green GVRD sign pointing the way to Belcarra. The route to Buntzen lies straight ahead at this well-marked intersection along Heritage Mountain Road. Note: There is no public parking in the village of Belcarra, so it is imperative to follow the road that leads to the park's main parking area.
