Great place for a walk in the forest amongst some originals, preserved because the park was formerly a British Admiralty timber (for masts) reserve. Spectacular view of Vancouver. Dog friendly.

Forest is amazing! Kids loved climbing (easy) rocks. Make sure to get a trails map as Google Maps does not have much there. OpenStreetMap covers it very well.

The hiking trails are nice , the views from different spots lovely. This would only be enhanced by being able to go up to and maybe inside the lighthouse.

There's history (the old lighthouse and its story), water views (everywhere), dog-friendly (both on-lease and off-lease areas), multiple trail options, accessible to kids, but never seems really crowded. We go here a lot and enjoy it every time.

One of my favorite spots in Vancouver. A lot of easy hikes in the park, beautiful views to Downtown and Lighthouse. Definitely worth the visit! Bring your own food and drinks, no shops in the area.

Unlike other natural places we visited (Stanley Park, Lynn Canyon) this park has lots of huge "first growth" trees (i.e. going back to before Europeans came) and offers a great forest walk experience. At the same time, it offers great views of the open water...More

Are there parking options if the lot is full? I won't have a choice to go mid-day on a Sunday, for example. Is there overflow or additional parking available? Thanks.

There isn't any overflow parking but there are a number of residential side streets that are 5-10 min from the park entrance. When we were there, we actually parked 3 streets down and asked one of the city bylaw officers who... More

Yes it's safe but you do have to practice responsible parenting as the park is a wilderness area and has cliffs and slippery rocks near water. Stay on marked trails and hold children's hands when near the water you will be... More
