Skating the Serpentine-Fenin
Over the New Year weekend (January 1-3) we saw quite a few families making the best of the freezing weather. During January the temperature down on the mud flats will often freeze the shallow waters of the Serpentine-Fen Nature Trail. This location has been a yearly attraction for ice hockey fans and recreational skaters; the calm shallow ponds create an ideally smooth and thick sheet of ice.
On this particular occasion the Vancouver blogger and photographer Christian Leblanc took amazing aerial footage with his DJI Phantom 3 Advanced.

The Park is located south of the Serpentine River, North of Highway 99, and west of King George Boulevard. Parking and access can be found both on 44th Ave as well as just south of the Serpentine River Bridge. 44th avenue borders both the park and Artknapp.
During the more common temperate Vancouver weather the park is frequented by joggers, bikers, and dog walkers who traverse the nearly three and a half kilometer trail, which takes around an hour and a half to walk.
The Artknapp employees guide families to the park year round—which directly boarders their property—and they unanimously agree Leblanc’s footage captures the majestic beauty that still-images just can’t.
