THE No. 14

BEACON Shedding light on the communities from Lions Bay to West Bay

January 2016

We welcome Lions Bay to our Beacon community

I

n September 2014, the Beacon expanded from the neighbourhoods immediately around Caulfeild, to “shed our light on the communities from West Bay to Horseshoe Bay”. With this edition we are delighted to include our neighbours in Lions Bay. Incorporated on January 2, 1971, the Village of Lions Bay gets its name from the twin peaks known as the Lions, which are a significant part of Vancouver’s spectacular backdrop. Lions Bay had its beginnings as a small summer cottage community, accessible only by water. This changed when the railroad to Squamish was built in 1956, followed by the original highway in 1958. “Lions Bay residents value their community as a peaceful, close-knit village, deeply connected to the natural West Coast environment.” lionsbay.ca A portion of artist Michael Tickner’s Two Points Of View which depicts Lions Bay, with the two points of Kelvin Grove and Brunswick Beach, looking up Howe Sound, with Anvill Island in the middle.
