So I am planning on heading over to Delta Watershed this evening for a ride after work is there anything I need to know other than park up somewhere and go for a ride? Cheers

pretty much just park and go for a ride.
It's in a bit of disarray, but there's still a ton of things to ride in there.

Remember where you went in, there are maps at major intersections to help you along but they dont show all the bike trails.

...is there anything I need to know ...

Be friendly to other park users (walkers, dog owners and you might even see equestrians).

Most people park at the Pinewood school. Don't block people's driveways. Keep the noise down.

Good call Craig.
There's a ton of walking traffic in the shed and some of it will cross into the biking trails. Be aware of pedestrians, and remember a simple "hello" can disarm anyone who thinks that bikers are goons.

Also, dog shit.
Watch out for it.

At least those are easier to see than dog crap. I'm MUCH rather ride through horse crap than dog.

Once in a while you'll see some yahoos on those mini-motorcycles.
