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.

If you have school age children this is a must if you are in the Vancouver area. There not only are animals but also lots of ecology and environment study exhibits and many hands on exhibits for children. Admission is by donation and goes to improve and support the work they are doing in the surrounding environment.

Our hotel was downtown on Granville. We travelled by bus to take the ferry to North Vancouver. From there we also took a bus to get up to Lynn Canyon. Remember that you need exact change for the bus! We spent several hours in the park. My wife was proud that she successfully crossed the canyon suspension bridge - 3... More
