In the park you can visit the trails that pass through the large and ancient trees, some more than 500 years old. There are trees exclusive to the Vancouver area, for other forests in the area were milled for local buildings. The trees that were replanted are considerably younger than the ones at the lighthouse.
Go on the paths towards the water line. Settle in a place where you can see the lighthouse, named Point Atkinson. To the lighthouse itself you cannot reach, since it is fenced off and not open to visitors. It was built in 1912, in the same place where once, in 1874, stood the first lighthouse.
Want to see seals? In the beach called Starboat Cove you can see them. Often you can even see whales from far away, and this is already a special and interesting experience.
On the way back east, to the car or bus, notice faraway the well-taken care of neighborhood that looks over the waters of Burrard Inlet, the same piece of water between North Vancouver and downtown.
It's beautiful here, we know...
The park trails are marked well and it is easy to find your way.
