If you’ve been down to the White Rock Pier lately, you probably noticed the newest additions! In celebration of Canada 150 and White Rock’s 60th birthday, the City of White Rock, in partnership with the White Rock Museum, have created and installed, a series of historical storyboards along the pier. The boards describe the history of White Rock and highlight many historically significant events and communities.

If you’re looking for more information about the history of the area, please visit the White Rock Museum & Archives located on West Beach along the promenade!
