A little out of the way, but a good hike. Getting on top of the rock to get a good view of the lighthouse could be challenging for the elderly. The hike up to that point is easy, and the trails are well kept.

We only came here as the weather was so poor on Grouse Mountain in Vancouver that we needed something else to do one morning. We weren't disappointed. There are some lovely trails through the woods which are relatively well signposted and groomed. The trail down to the lighthouse culminates in lovely views of the lighthouse itself and the sea.

It is a bit out of the way from downtown Vancouver but worth the trip if you like to hike. Access by public transportation is relatively easy. Went there on a Monday morning & had the park basically to ourselves. No open fires are allowed & there is not a snack bar on the grounds, pack a sandwich & bring... More

First off, it's free. Second, it's just amazing! There's parking, GIANT trees, boards informing you about the wildlife AND history. Trails all over! Some spots are steep so go with caution! There were many explorers here but people who dislike dogs or have dogs who are aggressive to others beware: people freely let their dogs roam and I watched one... More

This is a must for visitors or residents living in the lower mainland. A beautiful westcoast park. Bring your dog and they will love the park as much as you. Lots of well marked trails to explore. You can walk down to the Lighthouse, and water. On one side of the park on the waterfront you will see Passage Island,... More

I disagree with those who claimed that this place is great for a walk for people of all ages. Elderly people, depending how good your balance is, should avoid the walk to the lighthouse view. The trail has many uneven ground up and down. Remember to head towards the Atkinsons house to view the lighthouse near the end of the... More

The park is very convenient to get to without a car, taking 260 Horseshoe Bay bus from Vancouver City Center Sky Train Station. The main attraction is the light house at the southern tip of the park but there is not access to it. I think the best viewpoint of the light house are at East and West Beach, but... More
