Looking for a quieter side of Richmond, away from the congested traffic near Richmond Center area? This is a nice area to hang out and enjoy the summer sea breeze (or winter if you enjoy the cooler side of things). There are limited parking space available, however, you can always try to park on the near by streets. Pathway will also lead you to Steveston's Fisherman Wharf.

This site is made up of several buildings - huge cavernous net loft, small restored workers' residences and the original home of the boss and his family.It is run by volunteers and visits in the summer are best because it is open longer hours.

We wanted to do something local one evening and were delighted to find the shipyard. Self touring very easy and the history of the area is well displayed and very interesting. Highly recommend.
