This is a great spot to learn of the Lynn Valley area and ecology. Great static displays, interactive ones and workshop sessions. Check out their website to see whats on at the Centre now.

This was a neat little center with displays about the various animals, birds, fish etc in the area. There are also dioramas showing how humans have changed their surroundings. Very educational but smaller than we thought it would be.

Lots of interesting information presented in a fun format. My 13&14year old really liked it. There's a few nice gifts and postcards to browse too.

Great interactive information centre. Spent about 1 hour before kids got bored. Do it as part of the suspension bridge/walk/paddling visit. Come earlyish as free parking does get filled up.

Nothing high tech about this ecology centre. Just sound basic exhibits with some interesting info about the local flora and fauna.

We ended up here because the price of Capilano was extortionate. There were not nearly so many people. A relaxing and pleasant hike with the bridge attraction an obvious asset. Also it was free and still enjoyable. The food was not anything special and not...More

If you are a local or visitor and it's raining, this is a good place to spend an hour or more. Especially fun for little kids and possibly up to age of 12. Educational
