Lynn Canyon Safety Improvements

The District of North Vancouver is making significant safety improvements to the entrance areas of Lynn Canyon Park at the end of Peters Road to improve traffic flow, parking, and road renovation. Currently, all parking lots on the west side of Lynn Creek are closed but there is vehicle access and parking on the service road. Trail access is limited but the Ecology Centre and Bear Trail are open.

There is a parking lot available on the east side of Lynn Canyon Park, off Lillooet Road (opposite from the LSCR Filtration Centre). There are connecting trails to Lynn Canyon from the parking lot.

Please check back regularly for updates.
