Explore Lynn Canyon Park in
Lynn Canyon Park is a beautiful forested park in North Vancouver. It is known for its free suspension bridge, which isn’t as impressive as the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, but it is a narrow structure dangling 50 meters (164 feet) above the water. If you dare, stop in the middle of the bridge to take in the breathtaking views. Other attractions within the park include Twin Falls, the Pipe Bridge, and the 30 Foot Pool for a refreshing swim. The Baden Powell Trail also crosses through Lynn Canyon and many other North Shore parks, such as Capilano River and Grouse Mountain.
Surrey – Bear Creek Park Train
The Bear Creek Park Train with Eddy the Engine has been delighting children and adults since it opened in 1996.
It is a privately owned business run by Jassy Hans. The trains were brought over from England by Kevin McKlusky, who convinced the city of Surrey to allow him to run the train in Bear Creek Park.
In 1997 David and Linda Penn took over the business . David had a passion for the train and for the children. He designed the special events to delight the children, and he loved doing it until his death in 2012.
The 18 hole golf course was added in 2009 after consultation with the City of Surrey.
Big Splash Water Slide Park
If you are visiting Tsawwassen in the summer with the kids, be sure not to miss the Big Splash Water Slide Park. The 2.8 hectare water park features numerous slides, hot tubs, a splash pad and a large outdoor pool.
Adrenaline junkies should test their fear on the Boomerang tube slide, while those that are more timid can try the Eddy’s Eagle Run. There are also tube slides, twisting open slides and smaller slides for the young ones.
After enjoying time splashing around, head to the onsite café, restaurant or bar. Or book a cabana for the day and lounge on stylish loveseats and chairs, with some even having a private raised deck with 360 degree views of the pools and hot tubs.
