Unexpected little ecology centre filled with stuffed animals and information galore. Friendly staff and nice range of things to buy. Only 2 minutes walk from suspension bridge and definitely worth visiting first before you go on trials.

When visiting Lynn Valley Park, this is a must, although please note, it's tucked away so you can easily forget or miss it. In my opinion the sign posts are not too good. Having said that once inside it's a little like a museum. The Granchildren just love the place with a small area for children's interests. Lots to see... More

Although not a large center it offers loads of information about the ecology of the area. It made our visit to the park all that more interesting. A small gift section was well stocked.

This is such a well run and interesting place. Also has a great little gift shop with books on North Vancouver history and little things for little people that are not junk. Buy your child a "bug box" and he/she will be kept busy for hours.

If you have time, and certainly if you have kids with you, you should drop by. I haven't been in there yet this year, but the staff has always been good, and, although it's not very big, it's worth going in to find out about the flora and fauna in the Canyon.

Very interesting, if not a bit light on what to see, what there is, is very good. This is a must if viewing the suspension bridge and a welcome retreat in wet cold weather

We liked it. It's free, need just few minutes to visit and you can have some informations. Staff is very kind. Is good for kids. My personal advice for other reviewers: be short and avoid personal business ;-)
