Sun...the luminous orb, the light of which constitutes our day
Harrison Hot Springs, the jewel of the Fraser Valley is nestled amongst the Coastal Mountains on the southern shore of the 65 km long Harrison Lake offers a variety of places to enjoy the Sun. The Lagoon beach has a clean sandy beach ideal for sunbathing, and the lagoon provides a protected warm-water spot for swimming. At the west end of the lagoon are 2 great play structures for kids. Bring your own friends and volleyball and enjoy the two regulation volleyball nets on the North side of the lagoon. Restrooms and an outdoor shower help make your sun tanning experience more enjoyable. Up on the beach you will also find a larger than life chess board. Chess pieces are available during the summer and can be found in the boxes located beside the chess board. A short hike from the hot springs source you will find Sandy Cove, a wonderful secluded little beach with beautiful views. Keep in mind flip flops won’t get you there, proper foot gear is needed.
For remote sun tanning take a walk around Hicks Lake in Sasquatch Provincial Park where you will find the isolated Sandy Beach at Hick's south end. Private and remote it is well worth the journey. Two small islands also lie offshore in Hicks Lake and make for easygoing exploring and tanning. Commercial canoe rentals are available at Hicks Lake.
Picnic & BBQ
Take the kids on an excursion for an enjoyable picnic lunch in Spring Park. Located one block away from the lake this park offers swings, slides, teeter–totters, tennis courts and lawn bowling. For an unforgettable BBQ experience both Rendall Park and Green Point (located in Sasquatch Provincial Park) are situated right on the lake and offer picnic tables, swimming and stunning views.
Tennis & Lawn Bowling
Public tennis courts and lawn bowling are located in Spring Park beside the Miami River.
At the west end of the lagoon is a large play area for kids complete with slides, swings, climbing apparatus & games. Restrooms are available. Spring Park located one block south of the beach is a great place for kids to play while parents take a break and soak in the views of Mount Cheam. Slides, swings, and teeter-totters make this a great park for releasing some energy. There is also a children’s playground located at the Lakeside campground in Sasquatch Provincial Park. On summer evenings, natural history talks are presented at the amphitheatres. The park has a large day-use/picnic area at Green Point, which offers swimming and sunbathing opportunities.
