Ecological Importance and Cultural Heritage

This park encompasses more than 275 acres with 1.4 miles of saltwater shoreline along Boundary Bay. Forested upland bluffs, beaches, and rich tidelands are just a few unique natural features of this amazing place.

Historically, Lily Point (Chelhtenem) was an important Central Coast Salish reef net fishery and a center of traditional salmon culture. By the late 1800's non-native fisheries dominated the area. Today, only pilings remain of an Alaska Packers Association cannery that once operated here.
