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

I had a ride out to this wonderful park during my stay in Vancouver and it was a fantastic place to visit. The trip there is beautiful and the old growth forest is spectacular. There are lots of places to sit and relax on the rocks overlooking the ocean. I wish I had the whole day there.

This is fabulous free park in West Vancouver. Easy walking trails with some small hills. Great views of the ocean and good place to see some big Douglas Fir trees and a bit of natural forest. The trails are mostly gravel with some larger rocks.

My boyfriend and I have a routine of doing this hike together as a nature date as soon as the weather gets nicer. I would highly recommend it as the views are absolutely incredible.

This park is very accessible, even by bus. The walking trails are both easy and more challenging, depending which route you take. Make sure you see the view of Howe Sound, incredible!

You won't find many hiking trails better than this one, right in the middle of a suburb! Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver has some very nice old growth tree trails, a scenic lighthouse and lots of great coastal views and sea critters to check out along the way. The trails are not very difficult and are great for all ages.

Lighthouse Park has always been a favourite of mine for a walk through the woods followed by a picnic on the rocks watching the boats go by. If it is a nice day, get there early to get a place to park or take the bus.
