West Vancouver Seawalk Closed from Ambleside to Dundarave

In West Vancouver, no one was expecting a storm coming one week before Christmas. It is a storm surge combined with the high tide on Monday morning to damage parts of the seawall in Vancouver’s Stanley Park and the seawalk in West Vancouver.

Due to the storm damage, the following areas in West Vancouver were closed on Monday morning:

The Seawalk from Ambleside to Dundarave.
The piers at Ambleside, Dundarave and John Lawson Park.
Spirit Trail through Ambleside.
Ambleside Park.
Dundarave Park.
John Lawson Park playground.


Vancouver officials said there has been significant damage to the Stanley Park seawall from Second Beach to Siwash Rock, including rock debris and logs on the pathway.

“The seawall remains closed until further notice between Second Beach and Lions Gate Bridge. Gates have been closed at points along the seawall to ensure public safety. Further assessment of damage will take place once sea water levels have receded,” said a statement issued by the city.

In addition, there was flooding along the shore at Jericho Beach, and Jericho Pier has been damaged, officials said.

“Due to public safety hazards, Jericho Pier is closed until further notice. Kitsilano Pool was breached by waves, but it is a salt water pool and, on first assessment, does not appear to be significantly damaged.”

The storm also damaged the seawalk in West Vancouver, throwing logs up on the North Shore walking path.
