This park is very close to the city yet less crowded than Lynn canyon or Capillano. Breathtaking views from the cliffs out to the ocean, combined with a lush forest with a few centennial cypresses. Worth a stop !

Lighthouse Park has a lot of trails to choose from that take you to amazing views over looking Howe Sound and Burrard Inlet. Grab a map and pick your route!

The hike is about a mile, maybe more, through a forest (very shaded) of large trees. There are a number of times you need to climb a little, so not for those who have difficulty walking. The end is a large rock formation, which you...More

Enjoy a peaceful, relaxed walk from Marine Drive parking area to the Lighthouse on a sunny afternoon or watch the sunset from the high rock above. Very shady with magnificent trees along the way. Total time is about an hour round-trip.

There isn't any overflow parking but there are a number of residential side streets that are 5-10 min from the park entrance. When we were there, we actually parked 3 streets down and asked one of the city bylaw officers who... More
