Lighthouse Park Walk West Vancouver
Best walk-views-effort in the Lower Mainland.


West Vancouver BC is a city north of Vancouver, across the Lions Gate Bridge. It is a much bigger city than one expects. West Vancouver stretches west along either Marine Drive (the scenic route) or Highway 99 (the fast route) to Horseshoe Bay, where a BC Ferries terminal sits, allow people to head to Nanaimo, the Gulf Islands.

West Vancouver has two neighbourhoods along Marine Drive: Ambleside and Dundarave, which are noted for antiques, crafts and boutiques, giving the city a village sense. For main stream shopping, Park Royal shopping centre has grown to two sides of Marine Drive at Taylor Way.

A must do for nature lovers is Lighthouse Park. It has a wonderful walk to an 1874 Lighthouse which takes you past towering Douglas Fir and, after a good clamber over some rough terrain, to the most amazing view of English Bay.

For skiers, Cypress Bowl is a clearly marked exit from Highway 99 and is considered a local ski hill for Vancouver.

West Vancouver accommodations range from hotels to bed and breakfasts.
