West Vancouver, Parks
Find more information about West Vancouver - Parks
Lighthouse Park is about a 25 minute drive from downtown Vancouver. Most people get here by car, public bus service is available. What makes it unique is it is 185 acres of old growth forest -- the last of its kind in the Vancouver area. In addition to the impressive and nearly ancient Douglas firs, western hemlocks and red cedars are the stunning views of the shoreline, Vancouver and Vancouver Island. A great place to admire (or jump over) the sunset!
