This view from Point Atkinson you access through Lighthouse Park. While the park has a view point from higher up on rocks and very beautiful, this point is actually through private gates of a home yet has public access. There's a sign that if the gates are open, the public. I loved it there and am so glad I went.... More

We enjoyed the walk in Lighthouse park but unfortunately the gates to the lighthouse weren't open when we visited and there was very little information online as to whether or not it's ever open to the public. We did visit very early in the morning which may explain it but there were no hours posted on the gate or anywhere... More

There are beautiful rock patches to sit in tree shade besides the sea shore. The dense tree cover makes the place quiet. Sea on one side and dense forest on other gives magnificent scenery. The only drawback was that washrooms were out of service. You can see the downtown vancouver, stanley park, lions gate bridge and UBC from ligthouse tower.... More

If only you could access the rock to the Lighthouse. However, there are many places to snap a shot, or get a view.

I've always had an interest in lighthouses and sadly, many of them in my area are disappearing due to modern technology with the advancements of navigation equipment. Still, there are a few of them that have been kept safe. While I don't know the specifics about this lighthouse, its still fun to see. I will tell you upfront, parking is... More

An easy hike through the forest is just an added pleasure as you work your way towards the lighthouse. The silence and majesty of the massive trees in this ancient growth forest is awe inspiring. A spiritual place indeed. When you finally climb the rock that overlooks the lighthouse, the view is stunning. You can sit and watch the huge... More

I have been coming to this lighthouse park for over 20 years. It's a tranquil romantic experience especially if the weather cooperates.

Worth taking in if you are visiting West Vancouver or on your way to Horeshore Bay. Large parking lot and a well defined trail takes you to a rocky place to sit and have a picnic, enjoy the fab. view and hike back at a slow pace taking in the beautiful surroundings. A local treasure.

This park is close to where we used to live and is well worth a hike, whether you have just a half hour or half a day. Numerous trails with access to the beach. Dogs are welcome but be sure to pick up the poops since rangers frequently appear and do not take kindly to your pet's souvenirs! Easy access... More
