With its natural beauty, friendly neighbourhoods, maximized tax credits and close proximity to Vancouver, Maple Ridge is a film maker's dream! From a dynamic urban core to rustic farmhouses and unique turn of the century heritage buildings and opulent mansions, the versatility of our city is limited only by imagination. Situated on the north shore of the Fraser River and with its abundance of parks, stretches of picturesque dykes, winding rural roads and diverse commercial and residential buildings, Maple Ridge has been used as a backdrop for regions as divergent as New York to the Scottish Highlands. We are a film friendly community where residents and businesses have embraced the industry, welcoming filming into their neighbourhoods and homes.
General filming information for all BC parks can be found here.
Golden Ears Park is closed to all filming between May 1 and October 15 annually, due to exceptionally high visitor numbers and increased operational requirements for BC Parks staff.
