The district gets between 164 to 195 cm of precipitation a year, mostly as rain. Monthly rainfalls generally reach a maximum in December while minimums occur primarily in July.
Golden Ears Provincial Park is 7 miles north of Maple Ridge. See BC parks web site
Maple Ridge benefits by being on a surburban commuter train line - the West Coast Express.
This is a service that runs in peak hours only, with 5 trains into the city in the morning (approx 50 minute journey) and 5 back in the evening. There are additional train-bus services too, but you may need to consider alternative transport if you work irregular hours.
