Lynn Canyon Park officially opened to the public in 1912 and has been a popular destination among tourists and local residents ever since. Lynn Canyon Park is a great location for a family picnic, a leisurely hike, or a refreshing swim in one of the many popular swimming holes.
Lynn Canyon Park has grown from 12 acres in its early years to 617 acres today. Lynn Canyon Park contains second growth forest with most of the trees aged approximately 80 to 100 years old.
Lynn Canyon Park features a suspension bridge that sways 50 meters above the canyon. It was built privately in 1912 when the park opened. Lynn Canyon also offers a selection of walking and hiking trails that connect to other parks in the region such as Lynn Headwaters, Rice Lake, and Inter River Park.
The ecology center in Lynn Valley has been a part of Lynn Canyon Park for many years and showcases some historical information about the park. Be sure to make a visit to the ecology center for some great souvenirs, and to catch one of the popular puppet shows in the theatre.
New to this year’s program is a walk in the old forest in Lynn Canyon Park. Here mountaineering enthusiasts Max and Molly will entertain with tales of daring adventure and rescue in the early days of North Shore mountaineering. Named after Royal British Engineer and North Vancouver resident John Linn, Lynn Canyon Park has welcomed and wowed visitors for over a hundred years. On this walk the audience will be introduced to some of the North Shore’s most adventurous residents – mountaineers, rescue team members, skiers and climbers.
