The Garden City is a balanced community with a mix of urban and rural activities and is recognized as Canada's Gateway to the Pacific.

Located within twenty minutes from downtown Vancouver and the Canada/U.S. border (via Highway 99, King George Highway) and thirty minutes from the Trans-Canada Highway (via Highway 91, the Richmond-Annacis Highway). It is situated mostly on Lulu and Sea Islands, two of 17 islands in the mouth of the Fraser River. Surrounded by the Fraser River on three sides and the Georgia Strait to the east, Richmond neighbours are Vancouver to the north and Delta to the South.

The Vancouver International Airport in Richmond connects Western Canada to virtually anywhere in the world. Ten million passengers used the Vancouver International Airport (YVR), the second busiest airport in Canada.

Richmond continues to diversify from its traditional base of farming and fishing. Fresh fish and produce can still be found at water front and farm markets. Amidst the recent changes, the community has continued to place a priority on protecting farmland, preserving its heritage and protecting the natural environment.

Richmond has invested in a broad range of community facilities and services. These include Kwantlen College, neighbourhood community centres, art galleries, libraries, theatres, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and ice rinks, as well as an outstanding range of public and private parkland and golf courses. Population, approximately 160,000. Credit: City of Richmond.
