Take a walk around this island park and discover a heritage of human and natural history unique within the Columbia River Valley. Your visit will take you back several thousands of years when the Lakes Salish people first fished and built their winter pit houses here, just like the one reconstructed on the island. Almost 200 years ago, in 1811 when David Thompson canoed down the Columbia River past this island; and 60 years ago when Alexander Zuckerberg built his unique Russian Orthodox Chapel House. For the young and young at heart there are over 8 hectares of woods and a variety of paths to explore. Open year-round, you may select from many picnic tables and benches for lunching and relaxing.
