Coal Harbour

Coal Harbour
Coal Harbour

Coal Harbour is a bay off of Burrard Inlet in downtown Vancouver.  It is named Coal Harbour because it does contain coal.  It once stretched almost all the way to Second Beach in Stanley Park and contained Lost Lagoon, but has been cut off by the Stanley Park Causeway.  Over the last 20 years, it has been developed into one of the priciest and vibrant neighbourhoods of Vancouver with thousands of condos, it's own seawall, parks, attractions, monuments, statues, and restaurants!

History: Captain Henry Richards on HMS Plumber found coal here in 1859 and named it Coal Harbour.

This page will describe the things on the south side of Coal Harbour.  The north side of Coal Harbour (Vancouver Rowing Club, Vancouver Yacht Club, Deadman's Island, Hallelujah Point, Nine O'Clock Gun) are discussed in the Stanley Park part of this web site.
