John Lawson Park is an icon of West Vancouver history and heritage: in 1872, Navvy Jack Thomas, West Vancouver’s first non-native resident, built his home here. In 1905, John Lawson, the “father” of West Vancouver, settled in the same home with his family. Today, the park is a favourite spot for picnickers, swimmers and families. See for yourself why this been a West Vancouver hotspot for almost 150 years.
