Historical Scenic Tour

Brockton Point is the most easterly part of Stanley Park on the north side of Coal Harbor that is a great place to explore some of the city history of Vancouver. Brockton Point is a lovely scenic location that is now home to a sporting oval mostly used for cricket games.

The Brockton Point Lighthouse was built on the point more than 100 years ago, along with the signaling station. While you're exploring the waterfront region, check out the totem poles. There are a total of ten totem poles on display at Brockton Point, all replicas of old poles carved as early as the 1880s. The old original totem poles are now kept in museums for preservation, while the most recent addition to the collection was carved in 2009 by a member of the Squamish Nation, whose mother was born in Stanley Park.

Utrip Tips

*Check out the Brockton Point Lighthouse and totem poles while you're here. *There's also the 9:00 gun, which fires every night at 9:00 (21:00). So if you hear cannon fire, don't panic.
