Saturday, Lynn Canyon

Where to go in Vancouver in the summer

By / August 2015

Vancouverites stream into Lynn Canyon Park on hot Saturdays in the summer. Home to the only free suspension bridge in the Greater Vancouver Area, the park also boasts natural water slides, the 30 Foot Pool, into which daredevils dive from the cliffs above, and forests of Douglas firs and western hemlock trees. On a recent Saturday, a 90-year-old man named Moen, visiting from Switzerland, reminisced about taking his children hiking in the park in the 1950s. Since then, the park has been the set for several TV shows and films, among them Battlestar Galactica. — DS
