Lynn Canyon Park offers a rugged west coast landscape nestled into the southern slopes of the north shore mountains. Lynn Creek drops rapidly through the canyon and there are a number of pools popular for swimming. There are also many walking and hiking trails that run through the park.

After a scenic crossing on the SeaBus from Waterfront Station in downtown Vancouver followed by a 20 minute bus ride and a 10 minute walk brings you to North Vancouver's Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge in Lynn Canyon Park.

Popular with locals, but not as well known by tourists who usually end up at the better known and heavily promoted Capilano Suspension Bridge, this 'people only' foot bridge, built in 1912, hangs a full 50 meters above the rapids of Lynn Creek connecting the forest trail on either side. While this bridge is not as long or high above the water as the more famous Capilano Suspension Bridge, it does sway and bounce more making it very thrilling to cross. It is also completely free which is a nice bonus.

Although the bridge is old, you can be confident of its integrity as it is regularly maintained by the Municipality of North Vancouver which also operates the park.

Other activities in the park include hiking and picnicking. During the summer months there are guided nature walks also available in the park. If you get the munchies you can visit the Lynn Canyon Cafe located near the suspension bridge.
