Lighthouse Park – West Vancouver

Posted on: January 17th, 2011 by moojoes

Older Kids will have a fantastic time in this beautiful park in West Vancouver. Lighthouse park has the largest uncut, coastal elevation trees in the Lower Mainland and has a lighthouse beacon built in 1888. The park has many walking and hiking trails and natural picnic spots along the rocky ocean coast of West Vancouver. Be careful with younger children and don’t leave them unattended as this is rugged terrain; there are dangerous cliffs and steep drop-offs throughout the park and trails can be muddy and slippery and it’s possible to get lost in this park. Go prepared with water, warm clothing, food and a map.

It takes about 10 minutes of walking from the parking lot to reach the Lighthouse Viewpoint but on the way back it’ll take longer as it’s uphill. Plan on a 25 minutes strenuous uphill hike back to the parking lot. For more information on Lighthouse Park and to download a map visit their website.
