Secret Places in the Region-the other Lighthouse Park

Price Tags

Take a  bike ride or a vehicle south of the 49th parallel of latitude at Tsawwassen, cross into the United States at Point Roberts  and proceed southwesterly to the furthest point of land. Lighthouse Park (which has no lighthouse) sits at point where tidal waters meet and summer orca pods enjoy salmon bubbled up in the currents.

There is also a very interesting piece of art in this park called “Sunsweep” by artist David Barr. “Sunsweep” is an international art project located at three sites adjoining the United States/Canada border. The sculpture is aligned to the North Star, solstices and equinoxes, and portrays the path of the sun from east to west. Sunsweep is also  installed on the 49th parallel in Roosevelt Campobello Park in New Brunswick, and on American Point Island, Lake of the Woods, Minnesota.
