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

Nothing high tech about this ecology centre. Just sound basic exhibits with some interesting info about the local flora and fauna.

We ended up here because the price of Capilano was extortionate. There were not nearly so many people. A relaxing and pleasant hike with the bridge attraction an obvious asset. Also it was free and still enjoyable. The food was not anything special and not exactly cheap. Seems to be the going theme everywhere these days!

If you are a local or visitor and it's raining, this is a good place to spend an hour or more. Especially fun for little kids and possibly up to age of 12. Educational

If you're planning on going to the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge, then take a few extra minutes and visit the Ecology Centre, it's only a few steps away. It's very informative about the area

Visiting the Ecology Centre at Lynn Canyon gave us all the information required when visiting Lynn Canyon. Displays are excellent, well worth spending time here.

We paid the centre a visit after we had went for a walk round the suspension bridge and the twin falls. Great prices in here, very informative with lots of displays to let you know what is going on. Three of my children came into the centre and they all bought presents to bring back for their friends. Great selection... More

It was small but had many displays of educational information about the eco system and wildlife. My 2 year old daughter enjoyed the animals in displays and the sounds of each animal did. They have gift shop where travelers can purchase from postcards to stuffed animals to other Canadian souvenirs. We really enjoyed it.

Have been to tons of State and Federal Parks all over the USA and this Centre is just mediocre, more of a typical gift shop than informative centre.. They have stuff like a ranger to speak to and I think a film, but the room with explanation was pretty sparse....we literally walked in and then out! But had a great... More

Its great to find information on the ecology and environmental practices of places we visit. This center is small but offers a lot of interesting facts and it is clear they are devoted to environmental issues.
