Who we are

The Fraser River Discovery Centre (FRDC) was established in 1989 with the vision to connect communities in discovery in celebration of the living, working Fraser River. In 2001, a 5,000 square foot preview centre opened and in 2009 – after extensive renovations – the Centre reopened and is now over 17,000 square feet. It is prominently situated on New Westminster’s riverfront boardwalk between the River Market and the City of New Westminster’s Pier Park.

Through rotating exhibits and hands-on programmes, the Fraser River Discovery Centre presents the river's contribution to the life, history, and future of British Columbia and its people. The Discovery Centre seeks to connect communities up and down the river and provide a place to discuss, debate, and showcase the Fraser River.

We are the Voice of the Fraser!

 
What we’re doing

We’re planning for the next five years at the Fraser River Discovery Centre – more stories, great activities and programs, and stronger connections to our waterfront and to communities up and down the river.
