Family fun in the sunConfluence Park is a cute little park and trail hidden behind Hideaway Park. My boyfriend and I frequent this area to take his dog for a walk. The trail is short and sweet, just 1/4 mile loop, and very pretty. The Vasquez Creek meets the Fraser River where the trail becomes a boardwalk over the water. It’s perfect for strollers and small kids, or just an easy and peaceful nature walk. Moose love the meadow adjacent to the entrance of the park, so keep your eyes peeled.

The easiest starting point is from Hideaway Park, which is on the corner of the Hwy 40 and Rendezvous Way. It’s caddy corner from McDonalds and next to the Visitor Center. Start on the sidewalk set right next to the skate park and keep going for about 1/4 mile in the direction away from the park. The paved trail passes behind some new townhomes called Riverwalk.  Just past the townhomes, you’ll see a bridge that crosses over Vasquez Creek. Take a left over the bridge and you’re there.
