Unlike other natural places we visited (Stanley Park, Lynn Canyon) this park has lots of huge "first growth" trees (i.e. going back to before Europeans came) and offers a great forest walk experience. At the same time, it offers great views of the open water and of the Vancouver skyline in the distance. If you want a semblance of solitude... More

We visited Lighthouse Park on an impulse and only hiked to Juniper Point, on the west side of the park, .... but we were rewarded with a really memorable view of Howe Sound ! Bring a lunch as this is a great picnic spot. The path to Juniper Point is well signposted and short, but includes a steep descent.

A lovely park to visit with children. Wonderful place to take photos. Relax on the grass or bring your own camp chair. Bring your favorite goodies in a picnic basket and ENJOY

The Lighthouse is a historical site and gated and protected, there is a small camp ground in the drive way. It looks like someone lives there. You can't actually walk up to it or go inside. Trails are all about and start back just before the campgrounds. The really good photo opportunities "are not" at the Lighthouse. Almost "hidden" is... More

We came here while on vacation. It was a pretty quick and easy walk. The view of the lighthouse was nice and you could also see downtown Vancouver off in the distance.

We go to Lighthouse almost every week. There are a myriad of trails throughout the park. The tall trees are magnificent and there are numerous locean ook-outs along the edge of the park. Don't just walk down the road to the lighthouse like everyone else does...branch out onto the trails. Jack Pine Point is a nice spot for a picnic... More

It was a nice walk in the early evening (park closes at 10 pm in the summer, I believe). There are several trails you can take to get to various viewpoints in the park. Well worth the drive!
