The second largest lake in Metro Vancouver, Pitt Lake is a beautiful body of water that’s surrounded by mountains and nature just north of Pitt Meadows.

In the Lower Mainland, only Harrison Lake is larger.

Popular in the area is walking, wildlife viewing, hiking, jogging, cycling and hunting (with a license in specific areas and times). All trails are good for hiking, and many are good for cycling (especially ones along the Pitt River dykes). The area is flat, which makes it ideal for leisurely strolls, and the scenery is spectacular.

At the south end of Pitt Lake is the 2882 hectare (7122 acre) Pitt-Addington Marsh Wildlife Management Area, of which 6.5 hectares make up Grant Narrows Regional Park.

One of the Lower Mainland’s best places for a walk or cycle is the stretch of dyke right at Pitt-Addington Marsh, starting at the parking lot at Grant Narrows Regional Park. There is a boat launch right there, as well as several kilometres of trail along the waterfront. The scenery is spectacular year-round.

Just south of Pitt Lake is the Swan-e-Set Bay Golf Resort, which is one of Metro Vancouver’s best and most prestigious golf courses, located at 16651 Rennie Road. Throughout the Pitt Meadows region there are also numerous dykes for walking and cycling along, especially along the Pitt River, as well as lots of blueberry and cranberry farms.
