Lions Bay Factoids

Lions Bay is named for the twin peaks towering high above the community at approximately 1,600 metres or 5,400 feet above sea level.  The Lions as they are known are believed to be formed from lava cones, reminders of volcanic activity on the West Coast millions of years ago, and are famous around the world as a true Vancouver landmark.

Lions Bay grew from its beginnings as a small summer cottage community, only accessable by water and became a viable area for residential development when the railroad pushed through to Squamish in 1956 and later when the original highway was constructed in 1958.

As the area became more established, the population grew, infrastructure was developed and a vibrant community now flourishes.

Lions Bay offers proximity to Northshore and area recreation. Hiking, biking, boating, and skiing are all located close by.  It's a short 20 minute journey by car to Cypress Bowl in West Vancouver, and just over 1 hour to world renowned Whistler Resort.  Golf enthusiasts will enjoy having a number of quality courses to choose from both to the North and South of Lions Bay. 

The community consists of approximately 530 residences with a population of approximately 1,500.  Potable water is drawn from either Magnesia Creek or Harvey Creek.  Most homes are on septic systems with the exception of the Kelvin Grove subdivivsion.
