The railroad bridge just upstream from the Pattullo Bridge was opened in 1904 and when first opened, it was a double-decker bridge, rail on the bottom, road on the top. The name “City of New Westminster” was chosenHistoric down town New Westminster by Queen Victoria in 1859 after her favourite part of London – Westminster. The site of “New Westminster” was chosen in 1859, partly for military reasons, as it was on a steep hill on the north side of a wide river – thus more easily defended. New Westminster was the first city in Western Canada, west of the lake head (the Great Lakes).

In 1860 New Westminster became the first city in Western Canada, west of the lake head (the Great Lakes) to have a locally-elected municipal government. The Ancient and Honourable Hyack Anvil Battery carries out a salute to the sovereign, fired with gunpowder and anvils, each May on Victoria Day. The Royal Westminster Regiment traces its roots back to the Columbia Detachment of Royal Engineers who founded the City. The Samson V Maritime Museum is a former steam-powered sternwheeler that worked on the Fraser River – the 5th Samson in her line, retired in 1980.

Westminster Pier Park New Westminster, BC It's the park that I find especially enjoyable to walk through. It's pretty, right on the river and a great ambiance with lot's of parking nearby.
