This Provincial Park is operated by Katzie Development Corporation.
Located on the north side of Pitt Meadows, Grant Narrows Park is a wilderness area and wildlife habitat with a large patch of protected marshland. The marsh and surrounding wetlands are reportedly home to more than 200 species of birds and waterfowl. The main trail starts out as a wide gravel walkway with water on each side, then changes course and becomes a narrow and wooded muddy path dotted with cattails, pond weeds and blackberry bushes. There are countless opportunities anywhere along the trail system to view wildlife and the wide variety of vegetation and plants in the marsh. Along the way, you're likely to come upon trumpeter swans, herons, beaver dams and flocks of fire-engine-red hummingbirds. For the best views, climb one of the wooden observation towers.

In winter months, dress warmly and take along rain gear. In summer, the sun can be unrelenting on the open dykes. Wear a sun hat and take along a good quality sunscreen. Good walking shoes, binoculars and a camera are essential. Walking distance around Katzie Marsh is 6.5 kilometres and takes 2-3 hours.

Wilderness Adventure to Widgeon Creek
To get to Widgeon Creek, you need to paddle approximately one hour across Pitt River until you get to Wedgeon Slough. From there you wind through the slough until you come to the Widgeon Creek Campground. From here you can hike to the beauty of Widgeon Falls. The trail requires physical ability and canoeing / kayaking to cross the river. You will be in the wilderness, so please prepare yourself with safety protocol. Don't go alone and let someone know where you are going and your expected return time.
