We've been coming here for years and it's always beautiful. Thank goodness this land has been protected and maintained for hiking. Lighthouse Park is a gem. It's no surprise that Bono hitchhiked out here to take it in, Enjoy!

Wanted to get in a little nature walk while not having to drive too far out of town. The trails beyond the main path are great. Well marked and easy to follow, but still allows a person to feel they are in the deep outdoors! Also easily accessible through public transport for tourists or locals that don't have their own...

Lovely walking through the woods ending up with a lovely view of the lighthouse and a steep walk down to the shore and beautiful view from the rocks looking across to downtown and Stanley park

This Park has many trails to explore. There is also the main road (no vehicles allowed) that takes you right down to the Lighthouse for those that don't want to go off on their own on trails. Lots of people walk their dogs here. Parking can be very difficult on weekends, especially holiday weekends, but thins out after 6 pm... More

Stunning to be in or around this park. Take a boat around to see it with Vancouver as a backdrop. Wonderful place for a nature walk. Lots of trails down to the beaches and many picnic sites

This park is not far away from downtown Vancouver, within 30 minutes drive. There are several trails to make a loop. you can hike along the edge of the"peninsula ”and enjoy beautiful ocean view at the same time.

There are so many trails and lookout points on this hike! It's beautiful. We though we took the wrong turn as you get to the parking lot down this little back lane but then all of a sudden you're there! The only thing that it's lacking is covered picnic shelters when you get to the lighthouse area. There are old... More

This lighthouse is just outside the city and the grounds overlooking the Pacific Ocean are stunning. The trail to the lighthouse was simple but have walking shoes on and the forest was serene. I will go back when the lighthouse is open for tours.

If you miss going to this really neat place you have missed the heart of the Vancouver area. Dress for a hike and enjoy.
