West Vancouver’s First ‘Green Lane’ Reflects ‘Design with Nature’ Legacy of Francis Caulfeild


The Caulfeild area is distinguished from most other West Vancouver neighbourhoods because it has a recorded history that dates back to the late 1800s. Furthermore, the form of development for more than 100 years has reflected and respected the ‘design with nature’ vision of the man who founded this community, namely: Francis Caulfeild. This historic approach to land development has resulted in a ‘light ‘hydrologic footprint’. Recently, the District of West Vancouver Engineering and Parks Departments have constructed West Vancouver’s first green lane adjacent to St. Francis in the Woods Church in Lower Caulfeild.
