    We stopped by here for a quick visit and they have pretty interesting exhibits which enhances one's knowledge of the park. Worth a visit if time permits.  more »

    they have lots of interactive information for children. which in addition are very parents, you can see a little more of the flora and fauna of the place. only thing they dislike me so much is that they have stuffed animals although there are legends that those animals died of natural causes.

    Awesome place to spend a hot sunny day. Lots of hikes in wooded area. There is a great suspended bridge. Cascades where you can swim or cool off. Can bring your dog. Great family fun.

    As a first time visitor to Canada, the sight of the rubbish bin built like the Fort Knox with less straight forward opening mechanism puzzled me until I saw the signboards that bears live there! Luckily they are currently in hibernation coming to winter in November! I think I would faint if I see a life one in the wild after reading stories about them. That rubbish bin was almost at the entrance of the ecology centre. It was an interesting place to visit to have a better understanding on the vibes in the area before exploring. There are so many varieties of mushrooms around! We also learned about the different types of bears and compared us with their paw sizes!! Despite the rain, it is still a good place to visit! Since it's currently bear free, I took courage to hike one hour around the area, crossing over the slippery hanging bridge and boardwalks. Would love to continue if not for my non walking friends who were waiting in the car! The rainy area enables the lovely trees and bushes to flourish in the area!! Hiking would be just perfect there if not for the bears! Tread your path carefully!!

    Great hikes. Have been biking and hiking here since I was a kid. Although it isn't as natural as before and is a lot more touristy now, Lynn canyon still offers a true in the woods experience that is conveniently next to civilization.

    Beautiful place for a light hike with friends or family. This is the home to the famous Capilano Suspension bridge, which is either terrifying if you're afraid of heights or fantastically bouncy if you're not. I love that the park is so easily accessible from Vancouver, and the trails are so well maintained, despite lots of visitors.

    This is the free version of the Capilabo suspension bridge. This is the place to go for a good nature hike. DO NOT CLIFF JUMP! Don't worry, the signs will let you know. A lot of fatalities have happened here.

Where to stay in North Vancouver

Often overshadowed by its larger and more famous southern neighbor, North Vancouver offers relatively little by way of accommodations. Your best bet is to look towards the shore, along Esplanade Avenue and the streets directly behind, where you'll find a few hotels offering views over the pier. Stay west of the center, along Capilano Road, for easy access to the Capilano River and surrounding parks. You can also consider staying in Vancouver proper and take public transport across the harbor.
