*** 30 Something Mom Tip: Park at the McMath High School Parking Lot then walk to the Village.  For some reason the city of Richmond insists on keeping a 4 way stop in the middle of Steveston *rolls eyes*  The traffic in the intersection will be insane on Canada Day!  Or, take a bus.  Bus #402 Steveston
