This is a tiny cliffside park with access to the beach and scuba diving sites. Beautiful panoramic views of Howe Sound and Bowen Island can be found here, as well as grassy areas and picnic sites. It's a beautiful quick photo op for those visiting Horseshoe Bay.

This public park has playgrounds for children. I was mostly interested in birds and was rewarded by nesting flickers and a pelagic cormorant feeding chicks. The trees are fantastic. This is typical coastal British Columbia, but oh so gorgeous. My husband enjoyed clamoring about on the rocks. We were there at low tide, so tidal pools and crabs everywhere.

I often work near this park and this is definitely my favourite spot to have lunch. Quiet on weekdays with plenty of parking, less so on weekends in the summer. Washroom nearby and lots of little trails to explore. Fun to walk out to the "island," just watch the tide.

If you decide to explore West Vancouver area, Whytecliff Park is a definite must-see. It's just a couple of minutes drive to Horseshoe Bay. The park has a wonderful meadow where people are picnicking or doing BBQ. There are a few tables and benches, but overall people bring their own chairs and blankets. There is a great playground and a... More

We spent last August staying on the North Shore and all the beautiful beaches in West Vancouver were closed because of poop in the water. They were declared unsafe for swimming. It was kind of strange because people didn't seem to care and the media reports were vague about the cause. It remains a mystery as to how all that... More

Hidden gem! Definitely not a big park but it has amazing views and is a beautiful walk. It is just off the sea-to-sky highway down by Horseshoe bay which is wonderful area. This park is not an easy walk with a groomed trail, its very windy and rocky and steep in a few parts.

This is a classic for us. We always take visitors to this park. Love to search for sea creatures among the rocks.

This park has lots of little hidden seating areas on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Picnic tables and large play areas make this a perfect spot for families. In season there is a small restaurant stand that makes great burgers. There is also a small hill to climb that juts out into the bay but mind the tide or you... More

Wish there was more parking. Wanted to go for a picnic but couldn't because there was nowhere to park. If I go back again will go earlier in the morning. There were lots of scuba divers there but I was told the visibility was poor

Very disappointed that the water is currently so polluted here right now that it has been deemed unfit for swimming. You would think that the municipality of West Vancouver or Horseshoe Bay would look into this problem.
