White Rock Pier

The White Rock Pier is a historic landmark dating back to the 1920's and one of White Rock's finest tourist attractions boasting over 1,540 feet of boardwalk. Featuring a boat launch for sea faring visitors, the pier attracts a multitude of strollers, sea gulls, crab fishers and pier jumpers in the hot summer months.

With the real estate boom of the time, the original pier opened in 1914 as a dock for coastal steamships, and with the thought that White Rock might become a major seaport, especially since The Great Northern Railway line arrived here around the same time.

In the 1920s, a Royal Canadian Legion dance hall lay at its base on the shore and when it burned to the ground in 1935, subsequent buildings included the Panda Club - a much talked about sassy establishment in its day - and then a restaurant that also burned down in 1970.

Six years later, the pier had deteriorated to such unsafe standards that it is only thanks to community save-the-pier efforts that it found its current lease on life as a major tourist attraction, stretching out 470m/1,542ft into the ocean.

White Rock Pier is a favourite tourist spot that often forms the backdrop for wedding photos. Local residents love to stroll along the promenade and out to the end of the pier. Walkers and joggers love to walk right to the end and slap the top railing before heading back to shore - all part of their daily exercise program.

The friendly people you meet on the White Rock Pier will usually give you a smile or strike up a conversation. Don't be surprised if someone asks you to take a picture of them on the White Rock Pier.
