Brockton Point Lighthouse in Stanley Park - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
Panorama taken in June 2012 showing a view of the lighthouse on Brockton Point in Stanley Park and view over Burrard Inlet to North Vancouver and the mountains beyond. It was low tide, which made taking the virtual tour from the beach possible. On the far side of the strait is a bright yellow mound of sulphur and to the west is Lion Gate Bridge.

Brockton Point Lighthouse stands close to the totem poles at the eastern end of Stanley Park in Vancouver overlooking the Burrard Inlet. A lighthouse has stood here since 1890, but the current structure dates from 1914. The lighthouse and point are named after Francis Brockton who found a vein of coal in the Vancouver area whilst working as the ship's engineer of HMS Plumper in 1859. This is one of the tourist attractions in the park.
Another good viewpoint in Stanley Park is Prospect Point, about 2.5 kilometers away next to Lion Gate Bridge.
