Lighthouse Park is approximately 75 hectares in size and a nationally significant natural park within West Vancouver. It has important natural and cultural resources and very high levels of use by local residents and tourists. The park is a biologically rich and unique resource and is an example of a remaining old growth coastal forest in the Lower Mainland. The lighthouse and light station grounds at Point Atkinson are a national historic site and one of the most photographed and recognizable landmarks in the entire Lower Mainland.
Repaving of Lighthouse Park parking lot
The entry into the parking lot at Lighthouse Park from Beacon Lane has become uneven with wear. This is the only entrance into the park and is highly used. The entry and a portion of the parking lot will be paved to prevent potholes, water pooling and further damage to the area.
While some work was completed in July, the paving has been delayed until late September to accommodate the busy summer parking season in this area.
From September 24–25, road crews will be in the area to perform the work. There will be some disruption to traffic flow during this time. We thank you for your patience as we complete this necessary upgrade.
