Regional park (Horseshoe Bay Park) and unofficial marine trail launch site. The park was confirmed as trailhead of the Sea to Sky Marine Trail, but the District of West Vancouver as of 2017 was not honoring that designation and so the BC Marine Trails Network has not pursued its inclusion within the Salish Sea Marine Trail. The BCMTNA is continuing to clarify the status for the Sea to Sky Marine Trail with the district. It is, however, a useful location for walk-on, walk-off trips involving the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal
