  • Growing up in Vancouver in the 60s, I was aware of the WWII shipyard and some of the history. This site really brings it to life. It is well maintained and the historical placards are extremely...

  • Decent boat launch. For cars decent parking for boats parking is on gravel. Not ideal for picnics
  • This is a go to chill spot for me...along with my kiddos. BUT there is always so much broken glass everywhere. Bring water shoes for sure. Sand is more like small pebbles. It's most likely pretty polluted from the boats and being in the city; even still, I love the vibe. There's been a lot of street car racing around, so just be aware. There's a fun 3-story lookout to take in the view from Vancouver to Portland. If you've been to Seattle and experienced the Gum Wall, you'll enjoy this slowly growing "Lock" fencing at the top of the tower. Leave one if u can. :) You'll see lots of huge ships hauling goods, tugboats, and people enjoying water sports. Lots of trees for shade. BUT, BEWARE mosquitoes can get terrible when the sun starts to fade. Worth checking out for sure! Enjoy!
