Lost Lagoon is one of the two main water features within Stanley Park. Once it was part of Coal Harbour and was essentially a tidal flat that filled with ocean water during high tides, then drained out with low tides until the Stanley Park Causeway was built and cut it off from Coal Harbour. Pauline Johnson gave it it's name because it disappeared, i.e. was "lost", when it was low tide. It is popular to walk the trail around Lost Lagoon.
In the middle of Lost Lagoon is the Jubilee Fountain which has it's own storied history.
As of 2017, there has been talk of returning it to it's natural state of a tidal flat, but this is just talk now. The city has stopped filling Lost Lagoon with potable water during the summer due to the region's water restrictions.
In the summer of 2017 during a bio blitz strange blobs were found in Lost Lagoon. This was a big media story!
