I often went to Lighthouse Park as a child with my parents sometimes accompanied with visiting relatives. My father was interested in this park because of its large functioning lighthouse and because the park shows the scars of the last Ice Age. Along the exposed rock facings, you can see the deep scratches left on the exposed rock faces by advancing glacier ice that was once a mile thick in this area at its peak some 40,000 years ago.
I remember running through the forest trails here and also being told to stay away from the cliffs. The cliffs are the best features of the park and certainly the most interesting, which is why I rendered this painting. Off in the far distance you can see Point Grey/UBC (University of British Columbia).
