The nine totem poles at Brockton Point are BC's most visited tourist attraction. The collection started at Lumberman's Arch in the 1920s, when the Park Board bought four totems from Vancouver Island's Alert Bay. More purchased totems came from Haida Gwaii and the BC central Rivers Inlet, to celebrate the 1936 Golden Jubilee.

The peninsula was the site of one of the largest Indigenous settlements in the Lower Mainland, known as Whoi Whoi and was home to hundreds of people. For many generations, they drew from the forest and marine resources of the surrounding environment to create homes and sustain families.
