Long Description:
The Gulf Islands National Park Reserve is not a contiguous national park but a multi-unit park scattered across several Gulf Islands on Canada's West Coast.

The Georgina Point Unit is one of the many heritage points in the network where you can experience the views of Galiano Island and Lower Mainland from a historic lighthouse location dating back to the 1880s.

While this location is space and passive by nature it is a great place to just relax on the sprawling grass and watch the frequent passing of ferries linking Vancouver Island to the Mainland of British Columbia.
