A beautiful park and trails in West Van. Great place to get outside and some fresh air. Make sure to walk all the way to the rocks, where you can see it more open and across the bay.

This was a great place for a short hike with young (ages 4-8) kids. We took the Valley Trail down to the Lighthouse viewpoint, had a snack, and hiked up the Beacon Lane Trail (wide straight road/trail). Yes there were a lot of off leash dogs which is not so great for kids scared of dogs. PLEASE keep your dogs... More

This is the best place near Vancouver to see what the forests of the area would have looked like before logging. Big old growth trees on a moderate walk down to the ocean bluffs with wonderful views out across Vancouver and over to Vancouver Island. Be sure to take some of the side trail loops and not just the main... More

Such an amazing park, it was my first time visiting and I was very surprised. The views of Vancouver and the ocean are unreal especially on a clear day. It was a little disappointing that you can't go anywhere near the lighthouse though but still a great place to go for a walk/hike. However, I hope you don't have to... More

The lighthouse park is located in the very west part of the great city of Vancouver. I went there with some friends because we found out about this place a few days before; it was described as a " a great sunset spot". We arrived there a little bit late so we were pretty sure that the sun had already... More

I went to this beautiful park very early one morning for a good walk and birdwatching. This park is amazing with incredible views and lots of trails to explore. It was on a weekend and, unfortunately, by 10 AM there were so many people with their dogs off leash (legal on the trails) that I would not recommend it for... More

This park is not well travelled and is like a hidden gem in West Vancouver. There are lots of birds and great rocky outcrops where you can sit and enjoy the water views. Beautiful large trees and trails that are not too challenging, make this a perfect park for families.

I went there with friends for a short hike. It took us about 20 minutes to get to the lighthouse. It is very nice place to hike suitable for all ages. Great views on the way and some great photos opportunity over there. There is a free parking. Remember to not leave any valuables in the car. Police is patrolling... More
