"Of all the numerous parks in the Lower Mainland Lighthouse Park could be considered the most spiritual. The park contains the last stand of old growth forest in the area. Standing amongst these quiet giants and looking straight up to see their tops it is easy to be open to nature's many blessings and to wish their continuity. It becomes understandable why so many individuals have devoted their lives to preserve what's left of these survivors.
It is easily accessible off Marine Drive via Beacon Lane in West Vancouver just east of Eagle Harbour."
