The White Rock Pier, built in 1914, is a popular destination for people from the Lower Mainland and beyond. People come to the waterfront and the pier to enjoy breathtaking sunsets and beauty of Semiahmoo Bay.
The City installed accent lights to the pier in 2018 to add to the beauty and enjoyment of the Pier experience and to celebrate annual occasions and/or build awareness for registered not-for profit causes that are important to the White Rock community and its visitors.
Community non-profit groups can request to light the White Rock Pier to recognize not-for-profit causes that are important to White Rock community and its visitors. Requests must meet the White Rock Pier lighting policy.
Pier lighting request applications for the 2024 year are currently closed. Applications for the 2025 year will open on October 1, 2024.
