Discovery Waterfront Walk 

Thanks to all the participants in this year’s June 24, 2018 Discovery Waterfront Walk. We appreciate the support of all our sponsors. Without their financial or direct support this walk could not happen.  Similarly, the work and effort of all our volunteers made this event a safe and fun walk for all age levels.  Thank you all.  See you next year.

Key Issues

Opening Street Ends

In other words Public Beach Access. The North Vancouver Save Our Shores Society (NVSOSS) vision is to have all public owned street ends opened for safe Beach Access. Some have been blocked by private encroachments, some poorly maintained and dangerous, others remain unopened.



The proliferation of docks along the North Vancouver District foreshore impedes walking, utilization and enjoyment of the beach areas by the general public. These existing docks are an unsightly form of visual pollution which have a serious negative impact upon the scenic views of the area.  NVSOSS believes that a few well designed and architectural pleasing community docks with a single access point to the shore would better serve and address the needs and concerns of all. Alternatively, each waterfront resident could be provided with a properly designed mooring buoy for his craft and then all man made structures could be removed from the area's inter-tidal zone.



 NVSOSS is particularly worried and concerned about the indiscriminate proliferation of private docks, structures and other forms of encroachment which have already taken place or are planned for the inter-tidal beach zones of the District. Our area of concern extends from Maplewood Flats to Deep Cove and beyond.



We are all Stewards of our Foreshore and Beach. We must practice conservation, preservation and enhancement at all times, in order to protect this precious jewel that we are so fortunate to have as our backyard, for this generation and for future generations to enjoy.
