Named for the Point Atkinson Lighthouse located on its grounds, this coastal and rugged park is popular for day hikes. A beautiful old growth temperate rainforest along Burrard Inlet offers several easy walking trails with beautiful panoramic views.

There isn't any overflow parking but there are a number of residential side streets that are 5-10 min from the park entrance. When we were there, we actually parked 3 streets down and asked one of the city bylaw officers who happened to be walking around if we could park along the side streets and he said he was fine.
