The City of Mission is located on the unceded territory of the Leq’á:mel, Semá:th, Kwantlen, Sq’éwlets, Mathexwi, and Katzie traditional territories. Mission, formerly incorporated in 1892 as a district municipality, is a city in the lower mainland area of British Columbia. It is on the north bank of The Fraser River, backing onto the mountains and lakes overlooking the Central Fraser Valley 80 km southeast of Vancouver. Unlike other municipalities in the Fraser Valley, Mission is substantially forested upland with mere floodplains lining the shore of the Fraser River.
While Mission’s Bear Mountain Trail is ideal for downhill riding, Big Trouble Little Chainring Trail is better suited for trekking. The Rolley Lakeside Trail is the perfect area for people of all ages to take a pleasant stroll around the lake. With facilities including free hot showers, an on-site store and laundry, a sani-station, four playgrounds, on-site security, a boat launch, buoy rental, and sandy beaches, The Cultus Lake Park, Sunnyside Campground is the best location for swimming and fishing.
The Fraser River at Mission is in its most pristine form, making Mission the starting point for several water-based activities and the residence of commercial fishing vessels for fish species, including green sturgeon and salmon. The city has much more to offer than merely lovely places for tourists. Quit being bound to your lawn maintenance and discover the beauty of your city.
