Neighbourhood: Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views, beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical getaway spot for friends and families, especially as it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its best equestrian outlets.

    Great Photo OPs!
    I come this way every year or so - good exercise walking the north-easterly portion of Stanley Park, fresh sea air, and great views. This year I found myself waiting in line with tourists speaking many languages while they moved from background to background - just couldn't get enough of one of the most beautiful cities in the world! I love it, the tourists loved it, and so will you. Still uncertain? Have a look at my photos, please. And, when finished enjoying the views, take a moment to read the history of the lighthouse and its importance to navigation.

    Cute Little Lighthouse
    A cute little lighthouse along the Stanley Park sea wall. We stopped here on our bike ride around the park. It’s no big deal as far as lighthouses go, but it’s worth the stop. Great scenery and a cool breeze off the water makes it worth the stop.

    Nice Stop along the Seawall
    Sweet little lighthouse along the Stanley park seawall. A pretty easy walk from the totem poles. It's small but looks nice along the water. The water in the area is so clear. We were having fun following a goldeneye duck dive into the water and pop up. You could see it pretty clearly as it dove. Not use to such clean, clear water!

Brockton Point Lighthouse is in Stanley Park, a wonderful natural reserve. The views are fantastic and you can sit down and enjoy the surrounding area for as long as you wish.

Very good photo op. Take your postcard picture here! There aren't typically lines of any kind and makes for a wonderful picture for couples.

I walk this way often, and this is a must-stop place along the route. The lighthouse itself becomes an afterthought as it is overshadowed by the views stretching from northwest towards Lions Gate all the way southeast and downtown Vancouver. Whether you are walking or biking, plan a stop here.

The Brockton Point Lighthouse has been described elsewhere as a “Stanley Park showpiece.” Within the larger context of the park, I do believe this to be true. Situated along Brockton Point – one of the most popular spots in Stanley Park – the lighthouse is well-poised from both a historic strategic and contemporary aesthetic perspective. Historically, the lighthouse played a key and pivotal role guiding ships safely out of Coal Harbour between 1915 and 2008 (when it was finally decommissioned); hence, the “strategic” location. Aesthetically, the lighthouse, with its signature red band and lantern, beautifully complements the surrounding landscape: The inlet, the Seawall and cityscape. For this reason, you’ll see many a tourist or love-struck local snapping a selfie or two with this Stanley Park landmark prominently featured in the background.

While I do appreciate the lighthouse’s aesthetic value, I love the history behind it because that enriches the overall viewing experience: It hints at, and pays homage to, Vancouver’s early development as a growing port city. In this respect, the Brockton Point Lighthouse is indeed a historic beacon of light in more ways than one.

One final note: Inspirock suggests 2 hours for the lighthouse . . . I don’t think quite that much time is required ;)

We were exploring Stanley park and stumbled upon this gem. I’m a sucker for lighthouses and the setting for this one is grand.

Great spot to see both the Bridge and ships in the bay or look back towards vancouver city. Small lighthouse but very important strategic place.

Established in 1888 on the south side of First Narrows, this lighthouse guided shipping traffic into Vancouver, but its light was hidden to outbound traffic by the lush, dense forest of Stanley Park. There are great panoramic views of the Burrard Inlet, Lions Gate Bridge, and the Vancouver skyline
