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

This is an amazing park. It is located very close to Vancouver and can be reached by local bus. The tranquil forest trails provide a peaceful setting, which can be enjoyed at a slow pace or you can move faster to get a real workout. You can go for a short, one hour walk or spend an entire day. Moreover,... More

We spent a wonderful morning in Lighthouse park on the north side of the bay in Vancouver. Fantastic trails and walks through Old Growth Forest and stunning sea views. Go early to bag a parking spot - the car park is a decent size but not massive.

We enjoyed a few hours of hiking and walking in Lighthouse Park. It's a never-logged old growth forest with fabulous flora, terrain, and elevation changes. The lighthouse and interpretive displays are interesting. The rocky "beach" is fun to explore. The views of Vancouver (Downtown / Stanley Park / Lion's Gate Bridge / Point Grey) and Bowen Island / Howe Sound... More

We loved this park, a true oasis in the midst of the big city. There are park maps at the trail entrance. We took the Shore Pine Trail on the way down to the lighthouse viewpoint and the Valley Trail back. Gorgeous views toward downtown Vancouver at the end of the Shore Pine Trail. We liked the Valley Trail the... More
