If you love to golf, you'll love Pitt Meadows. Where the Pitt River and Fraser River meet, golf courses stretch out beside large cranberry and blueberry farms. Over one hundred holes of golf, on four scenic courses are clustered near towering mountains and the cool river currents.
Pitt Meadows is also one of the region’s fastest-growing eco-tourism recreational areas. Rent a canoe and explore the immense Pitt Addington Marsh Wildlife Area with its raised bog, marshes, forest and tidal flats. Its home to deer, black bears, beavers, and muskrats. Grant Narrows Regional Park, situated at the south end of Pitt Lake, one of North America's largest fresh water tidal lakes, is a great place for hiking and bird watching. The lake itself is popular for fishing and boating; with your fishing permits in hand, why not try your luck at steelhead trout, pink, coho, spring, and sockeye salmon.
The extensive dyke network, put in place to contain flood waters, has evolved into a popular recreation resource for avid walkers and cyclists, and connects to trails in neighbouring Maple Ridge.
