Point Atkinson Lighthouse, West Vancouver

Point Atkinson Lighthouse was built in 1914 on granite boulders jutting out into Burrard Inlet in West Vancouver, Canada. The reinforced concrete structure replaces an earlier wood structure built in 1875. The concrete structure was considered at the time innovative in lighthouse design. It is now automated and still in use.
The Point Atkinson Lighthouse may be reached by hiking the Valley Trail in Lighthouse Park.
