Stawamus Chief Provincial Park

Stawamus Chief Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada established in 1997. It includes hiking, rock climbing, camping, and scenic views across Howe Sound and Mount Garibaldi to the north. The park was recently upgraded as part of the Sea to Sky Highway Improvement Project, which gave it a new signature pedestrian bridge with a striking form that uses two blue, splayed arches and a curved concrete deck.

It is located just to the south of the town of Squamish, on the Sea to Sky Highway at the top NE corner of the Howe Sound.

It encompasses both the Stawamus Chief and the Stawamus Squaw granite domes.
