This is such a well run and interesting place. Also has a great little gift shop with books on North Vancouver history and little things for little people that are not junk. Buy your child a "bug box" and he/she will be kept busy for hours.

If you have time, and certainly if you have kids with you, you should drop by. I haven't been in there yet this year, but the staff has always been good, and, although it's not very big, it's worth going in to find out about the flora and fauna in the Canyon.

Nice place to visit and learn about ecology and the local environment. Beautiful setting with trails to hike nearby and several waterfalls and areas to enjoy

Very interesting, if not a bit light on what to see, what there is, is very good. This is a must if viewing the suspension bridge and a welcome retreat in wet cold weather

We liked it. It's free, need just few minutes to visit and you can have some informations. Staff is very kind. Is good for kids. My personal advice for other reviewers: be short and avoid personal business ;-)

This is a great spot to learn of the Lynn Valley area and ecology. Great static displays, interactive ones and workshop sessions. Check out their website to see whats on at the Centre now.

This was a neat little center with displays about the various animals, birds, fish etc in the area. There are also dioramas showing how humans have changed their surroundings. Very educational but smaller than we thought it would be.

Lots of interesting information presented in a fun format. My 13&14year old really liked it. There's a few nice gifts and postcards to browse too.

Great interactive information centre. Spent about 1 hour before kids got bored. Do it as part of the suspension bridge/walk/paddling visit. Come earlyish as free parking does get filled up.

As a Lynn Valley local the Ecology Centre played an important role in my childhood. As daytime nanny is was a favourite spot to bring the kids. The mini movie theatre plays a great select of National Film Board movies and environment themed movies -we always liked to watch the original Lorax movie. This is also a nice spot for... More
