On our way to catch the ferry home from Vancouver awhile ago, we decided to take a detour to Lighthouse Park to see what it was all about. Winding roads through beautiful houses in West Vancouver lead us down to the parking lot and a 10 minute stroll from there took us down to the point to view the lighthouse passing by a scout camp with several old buildings.
In 1792 Captain George Vancouver named the land and it is now used as an outdoor educational centre and is recognized as a National Historic Site. The park contains Douglas Fir, Hemlock and Western Red Cedar and has the largest uncut, coastal-elevation trees in the Lower Mainland.
If you have time to spare before your ferry, or you miss the ferry, take a walk down here. You will be pleased you did.
