Burrard Dry Dock Pier

At 700 ft. long, the Burrard Dry Dock Pier is a signature landmark and the City's largest pier. Located at the foot of Lonsdale, the Pier offers spectacular 360-degree views of the North Shore and Vancouver skylines.

The Burrard Dry Dock Pier represents a coming together of the past and future. It stands as a tribute to the City's shipbuilding history and rich marine heritage. At the same time, the Pier has contributed to the transformation of the City's waterfront into a major urban destination.
