Lynn Canyon Park

On my recent visit to North Vancouver I had the chance to drop by Lynn Canyon Park, a popular municipal park just a 20-minute bus ride north of Lonsdale Quay. The park features many hiking trails of varying difficulty, and a 50-metre high suspension bridge over Lynn Creek. It is also the largest park in North Van.

After a 1-km walk from the bus stop through a quiet residential area, you’ll reach the park entrance and the suspension bridge just nearby. This particular weekend was especially busy due to the good weather, so it’s a good idea to take public transit. There are no entrance fees either, which adds to the park’s popularity.

The trails are well-maintained and lead you on an easy walk to the bottom of the valley where diving into Lynn Creek seems to be a favorite activity with many visitors.
