Exploring the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge and Park

Lynn Canyon Park is a municipal park located in the District of North Vancouver in British Columbia. The park officially opened to the public in 1912 and has been a popular destination for locals and tourist alike ever since.

Lynn Canyon Park features a suspension bridge that sways 50 meters above the canyon. The park is open daily all year, and it is free to cross the bridge.

Lynn Canyon Park is the perfect location for a family hike. It is a great spot whether you go during the summer or the winter, and it makes a beautiful backdrop for photos. We go hiking there with the boys year-around and love it there.

During the winter be sure to wear appropriate shoes and warm clothes and allow plenty of time to return to the parking lot before it gets dark. Other than that the place is stunning and a hike there is great exercise for both kids and adults. Note that there are plenty of stairs, so the park isn’t stroller friendly,  be sure to take a baby carrier instead.

Directions when driving:

If you are driving, take upper levels Trans Canada Highway 1 until you reach exit 19. Follow Lynn Valley Road North East past the Mountain Highway intersection, and then continue to Lynn Valley Road.

Watch for Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre sign on the right-hand side of the road. Turn right onto Peters Road, and you will find the main entrance at the end.

If you are local, have you ever visited the Lynn Canyon Park? If not, I highly recommend you visit soon! More details about the park, including a map, here.

    I haven’t been to Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge in years. It was where my love of BC forests and trails began.

    ‘suspension bridge that sways 50 meters above the canyon’ I guess it sways badly if it’s a windy day.
