Not sure if this information has made the rounds yet, but this is an FYI for folk who have launched from Batchelor Cove in West Vancouver.
There is no longer any overnight parking on Dufferin Avenue (unless you know a resident on the street and can obtain a parking pass from them). Overnight is defined as midnight to 7 am. The daytime parking rules (7 am to midnight) limit parking to 3 hours.
The no parking signs extend all the way back to the corner at Marine Drive.
Now for the good news. At the west end of Batchelor Cove, there are stairs that ascend to street level on Marine Drive. For approximately 100 meters at the top of the stairs (extending roughly NE), overnight parking is available. That is, there are no signs prohibiting parking in any way.
All of the above is based on my experience this weekend, unloading/loading my kayak at the turn-around on Dufferin Ave, then parking where I described. It requires some faith in humanity to leave your gear on the beach to park your car, but it is doable.
In related news, Apodaca is a very nice park to visit. Well done Nick and volunteers who cut the trails and made the beach inviting. Do visit the park when you get the chance!
