Capt.Dell_A380The land was originally used by Indigenous peoples for thousands of years before British Columbia was colonized by the British during the 1858 Fraser Canyon Gold Rush and was one of the first areas to be explored in the city. For many years after colonization, the future park with its abundant resources would also be home to non-Indigenous settlers.The land was later turned into Vancouver's first park when the city incorporated in 1886. It was named after Lord Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby, a British politician who had recently been appointed Governor General. It was originally known as Coal Peninsula and was set aside for military fortifications to guard the entrance to Vancouver harbour. In 1886 Vancouver city council successfully sought a lease of the park which was granted for $1 per year. In September 1888 Lord Stanley opened the park in his name.
E38***43Canada Place was a fun place to visit. There were so many things to see and do. We were lucky to be there during an anime cosplay expo. We're able to interact with cosplayers and ask them for a photo. It's definitely worth visiting!
爱好和平Located in the west vancouver, the lighthouse park in the greater vancouver area is a long way from the centre of vancouver, and you can take the 42 stops of the 250 bus to the horseshoe bay at w georgia st ( expo line ten) in the centre of vancouver. Because the road is far, the average person will not take the bus, is driving to, I because is a tourist, no car drive, plus oneself alone, did not think of renting a car. The 250 bus came to the area near the lighthouse park and felt quite sparsely populated, like wild mountains, a little scary, but it could be the Chinese psychology, Canadians are less adults, they are not surprised. After getting off the bus, one of the roads, there will be lighthouse park signs along the way, to later and into the park, the road is rubble and mud, before I set off, the shoes are polished and swim the shoes gray, so you must not wear shoes to this park. This park is a primitive forest, the park is not the same as the other parks in Vancouver, in addition to the sky-high trees, there are many big stones, very hard kind, the park is no grasshopper, after all, it is a primitive forest, but the park has a path. Walking along the trail through the virgin forest and all the way to the sea you can see the lighthouses from different places. So the tour was short. There are also city sightseeing spots in the park and a few views from the designated sites of most of Vancouver city. It's OK to drive with friends to see some of the time.
