Mud Bay Park Situated along the shore of Boundary Bay, Mud Bay Park offers excellent opportunities for bird-watching. Shoreline trails lead you past a variety of habitats supporting hundreds of different types of birds, mammals and marine creatures. The combination of mud flats, eelgrass beds, salt marshes, meadow and ocean creates an ideal mix of wildlife habitat. Did you know that eelgrass beds and mud flats are among the most productive ecosystems in the world? At Mud Bay Park, the eelgrass beds and mud flats are an important stopover for migrating birds in need of food. The park is located along the Pacific Flyway, an aerial “highway” for birds flying between Alaska and the Canadian Arctic to Central and South America. Mud Bay provides a buffet of food sources including whelks, worms, clams, and mussels. Thousands of birds visit, nest and live in the park. During your visit, take a break on one of the many benches and try to spot some of the reclusive shorebirds not far from the shore. Enjoy ocean views while walking the park's trails. A 2.5-km loop trail takes you along the park’s perimeter on a flat, wide trail. For a longer walk or bike ride, follow the dyke trail west into Delta and to Boundary Bay Regional Park. Please note that the shoreline trails are closed to dogs, bikes, and horses from fall to early spring each year to minimize disturbance to migratory birds.
