Gorgeous park with walking trails through beautiful forest with many trails leading down to the water's edge overlooking Vancouver and Vancouver Island in the distance. It is very dog friendly. Baby strollers are a bit tricky as there is only one main road down to the lighthouse which is easily done, otherwise the trails are a bit bumpy and steep.

One of the best things about Vancouver is that you can quickly leave the city and enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Northwest's forests and mountains. Lighthouse Park is a relatively short drive West from Lions Gate Bridge. Free parking is available at the trail head. The park features several wonderful hikes through virgin growth forest. Our favorite is a... More

This park completely exceeded my expectations. The views of the water and mountains are amazing, as well as the coastline. The park has a lot of trails winding through the area. I would recommend following the coast around the park. There are plenty of rocky outcroppings that you can get out to and see the rocky coast and the water... More

Just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver, this beautiful park tucked in between the quiet neighborhood is absolutely a gem. Good hiking grounds and you can get out on the rocks to watch the amazing sunset. We saw seals swimming around. You also get to see Vancouver from the other side. It's so pretty we... More

This is a must see in Vancouver! It's not easy to find but when you find it's a real treat. In the park there are large old trees. If these trees could talk. It's not park like in the Netherlands but it's more of a forrest. In the hectic of a large city as Vancouver it's a resting place. It's... More

Wear proper foot wear as it's a bit of a rugged hike to the Point Atkinson lighthouse (I used to use this navigation aide to guide me back to the Point Grey bell buoy from Active Pass at night). I noticed several signs cautioning patrons about vehicle break-ins in the parking lot

Being there, is like being in the wilds of the Pacific Ocean. Seeing the light house is a experience for many, especially young kids Alberta, Sask and Manatobia

We went on the trail walk that included some 1st growth trees. It was awesome to see. The trails could have had more helpful signage. Also, the trail was considered easy, but in fact was somewhat challenging as climbed up fairly large rocks, etc. It took us about 30 to 40 minutes to hike this trail.

Even on a gloomy gray cloudy day this place was so beautifully vibrant and lush. Unfortunately we weren't able to get close to the lighthouse but we were satisfied with just sitting on nearby boulders to drink our beers. Exploring this magical place was one of the biggest highlights of our Canada trip. Come and get lost. You won't regret... More
