Getting Ready for Your Visit

How to Prepare for Your Visit

  1. To get ready for your visit, please review any information we have sent to you.
  2. Plan to arrive in the park 15 minutes before your program for a snack and toilet break before you come into the Ecology Centre.
  3. It’s often wet in the mountains, even if it’s not raining elsewhere in Metro Vancouver. Make sure that your group is dressed for the weather. Please ask everyone to come wearing layers, with waterproof boots and a waterproof jacket. Rain pants are also highly recommended!
  4. Remind your group that the forest is a great place to unwind… and unplug. Please leave electronic devices at home. If you’d like to take photographs, keep your camera or phone in a zippered pocket during the rest of the field trip to make sure that it is safe and dry.

When you arrive at the Ecology Centre, check in at the front desk. As your group explores the Centre, our program staff will speak with you about the program and the learning needs of your group.

Getting to the Park

Lynn Canyon Park is easy to access.

  1. Public transit. Take the #227 community shuttle* to Peters Road at Duval Road or the #228 bus to Burrill Avenue and Lynn Valley Road. The community shuttle cannot fit a large group.
  2. Private bus. Bus parking is limited. Please notify us in advance if you will be arriving by private bus so we can make arrangements for parking.
  3. Car. If you’re visiting with drivers, the closest parking to the Ecology Centre is the upper paved parking lot. Pay parking is in effect seasonally from March 1 to October 31. Parking is $3 per hour, for a maximum of 4 hours. The parking meter only accepts credit cards. District residents are eligible to purchase a $10.20 annual DNV Park Parking Pass that will enable them to park in the lot without paying the hourly rate. More information is available here.
