The Long Pier: White Rock, its pier & community identity

The White Rock pier:

The Long Pier


Some landmarks’ existence is so entwined with the communities in which they are located that it’s difficult, if not impossible, to think of one without the other. The pier in White Rock is one such landmark. It is foundational in the development of the current city of White Rock and intrinsic to its sense of place.

However, at several points along the history of the pier, its existence in the form we know wasn’t guaranteed. Key decisions, from the initial one to build it, to several ones to not destroy it or to change it in ways that would’ve made it unrecognizable, have shaped it into the one we know today: White Rock’s recreational pier – the longest in Canada.


Please join us for this exhibit to explore the story of White Rock’s beloved pier. The exhibit runs from June 29 until September 5, 2021.
