Highway 1 to the Second Narrows Bridge. The Upper Levels Highway serves as
the major east/west connection to the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal, Sea to Sky
Highway (Highway 99 North) and Whistler to the north, and to the other North
Shore municipalities. Marine Drive is the scenic route connecting local
neighbourhoods along West Vancouver’s waterfront and providing a lower
connection to North Vancouver and the Lions Gate Bridge.
West Vancouver’s dramatic topography is one of its defining characteristics. The
rugged shoreline, steep terrain, numerous creeks and watercourses, and
spectacular views provide an extremely attractive setting of international renown.
District, regional, and provincial parks throughout the community offer
unparalleled opportunities for outdoor recreation, open space, and access to
natural areas. There is a range of amenities and natural features – from the beaches and marinas along the shores of Burrard Inlet and Howe Sound to the
hiking trails and ski areas on Hollyburn Ridge and Cypress Mountain.
Extensive areas above the Upper Levels Highway are mountain wilderness.
Most of the uppermost areas will continue to be preserved in their natural
forested state for watershed, open space, limited use and recreation, while lands
below the 1200’ elevation will be developed over time as attractive
neighbourhoods within a framework of significant open space features.
