Living in White Rock

White Rock got its name after, you guessed it – the white rock! This boulder was transported via glacier thousands of years ago and used to be a beacon for local sailors because it was easy to see. The city now regularly paints the rock white to maintain the image. It also has a great story as part of local Salish first nations folklore. See if you can learn about it the next time you visit.
