Brockton Point in Vancouver’s beautiful Stanley Park


Brockton Point in Stanley Park is the location of a small lighthouse, built to aid navigation of ships in Burrard Inlet. The first lighthouse was commissioned 1890, but the current structure dates only from 1915.

The arch at the bottom of the lighthouse was originally intended to be part of a boathouse, but this plan was scuppered by the treacherous currents at this point.

Just along from Brockton Point is the Nine o’clock Gun, originally fired by the lightkeeper but now controlled electronically. A bit further back, where the park narrows, is the famous collection of totem poles.
