Another weekend is upon us and the weather forecast is looking pretty decent! If you’re out and about in North Vancouver, here’s 5 fun things to do around town.

1. Slide the City on Lonsdale Ave.

Slide the City

This 3 block long waterslide is part of North Vancouver’s car free day festivities that take place at Victoria Park on Lonsdale Ave. The waterslide will run from Victoria Park down to 3rd street. If you’re driving avoid the area and expect long delays. This is one awesome event you don’t want to miss!

2. Enjoy a Refreshing Craft Beer at Green Leaf Brewing Co.

Green Leaf Brewing Co

The amazing hot weather we’ve had all summer long calls for a refreshing drink on an outdoor patio. One of the best options on Lower Lonsdale is Green Leaf Brewing Co. located on the South side of the Lonsdale Quay market. Enjoy a pint or a flight of the latest brews while basking in the sunshine on the patio. You can also pick up a growler to enjoy later!

3. Hike to the Peak of Mount Seymour

Want to avoid the crowds entirely this weekend? I’m sure some of you do as Lower Lonsdale is going to be jam packed with several thousand people. Why not take a hike up Mount Seymour, enjoy some stunning panoramic views and most of all, enjoy some peace and quiet in nature. You’ll thank yourself for it when you reach the peak!

4. Hike to Quarry Rock in Deep Cove

A visit to Deep Cove itself is a must do if you’re in North Vancouver, and if you feel like a little exercise then why not venture a little further and take a hike to Quarry Rock. You’ll be treated to amazing views of the Cove and surrounding areas of Vancouver plus the forest scenery is pretty awesome. Give it a try if you haven’t already!

Bring the family out to Lynn Valley Day at Lynn Valley park. I’ve been enjoying the festivities at Lynn Valley Day since I was a 6 years old and it’s great to now have the opportunity to have my own kids take part in this great community event.


This year the community of Lynn Valley will celebrate on Saturday May 30th, 2015 for Lynn Valley Day, kicking things off with a morning parade down Lynn Valley Road at 9:30 am, followed by the main event at Lynn Valley Park that offers a pancake breakfast hosted by the Lynn Valley Lions, with Races, Rides, Music, Games, Clowns, Balloons, and more. If you haven’t attended Lynn Valley Day in the past, it’s a great community event that your family will truly enjoy. Have your kids swing by the PILKINGTON tent for free arts and crafts, face painting, Janina The Clown, balloons, and more!
