This place has the free suspension bridge in North Van – unlike the Capilano bridge which is very touristy. (I used to work there many years ago.) A great place to walk dogs or simply go for a walk yourself. Lovely walks in the woods or along a trail. Kids sometimes jump off a small cliff into the river. Don't... More

Lots of trails to lose yourself in Mother Nature on the North Shore. Fresh air, great scenery and well marked paths to hike for an hour or three.

I have spent there over half a day with friends. Park is great. So many hiking trials, waterfalls and ponds with extremely cold but crystal clear water. We were cliff diving over there. Great place. Suspension bridge over there is amazing and views breathe taking. I will visit this place again someday. True gem.

Beautiful area, with trails to suit most abilities...I would err on the side of caution as far as ability goes, though, as certain trails marked as easy can include some steep inclines, stairs, and uneven terrain. I didn't have any issues with this, but encountered an elderly couple who were clearly struggling down a steep incline and were only half... More

Great area to trail run, go for a stroll, sit by the river and enjoy the scenery year round. Easy access to the suspension bridge, twin falls, and the sights and sounds of the raging canyon. It's my little piece of heaven. Less touristy that other areas with tons of locals. Great little coffee shop at the entrance called end... More

Hiking or strolling. No limitation for you as long as you can walk. Coffee shop at the suspension bridge. Awe inspiring views. Lots of parking. Picnic tables set up for large groups or smaller ones. A beautiful way to spend an hour or a day

I am in the canyon almost every day. This is paradise on earth. My dog and I go for hikes all over the canyon. A lot of the trails are off leash which I like. My dog loves to swim in the river and the scenery could not get any more beautiful. Lots of wild life to be seen. I... More

I've been lucky to live near Lynn Canyon Park for over 20 years. It's free--even has a free suspension bridge--and provides you with beautiful hikes, a swimming hole for those warmer summer days, and easy access to private rocks along the river shoreline where you can have a picnic, read, or just daydream. It's great for anyone who wants a... More

I found out about Lynn canyon through Tripadvisor and thought we would check it out. We took public transportation there and back from downtown, and had a good time. It was nice to combine a trip to a great city with some exploring of the beautiful parks around Vancouver, being from Colorado, we have some great hiking, but the lushness... More

The question I have seen and heard is whether or not Lynn Canyon is better than Capilano. * If you are short on cash, Lynn Canyon Park is a delightful FREE alternative. * If you have young children, they are unlikely to see a big difference. * Both are equal distance from the city, and both have parking problems.
