Lighthouse Park is located in West Vancouver, and you can get
there from Vancouver by driving for 15-20 minutes West on Marine Drive after crossing the Lions
Gate bridge. Marine Drive is very scenic, with numerous driveways heading up
very steep hills, where the good people of West Vancouver live in their lovely
mansions. Marine Drive requires careful driving due to frequent blind turns, but
it is a pleasant driving experience nonetheless. Lighthouse Park is on the left
side of Marine Drive, if you are heading West. The entrance to the park is easy
to miss, as it does not stand out all that much.
