District of North Vancouver residents will be able to purchase an annual $10 DNV park pass which will exempt them from payment at the Lynn Canyon Park parking lot.
The two-year pay pilot project at Lynn Canyon and Lynn Headwater parks begins on March 1 this year.
DNV residents will be eligible to purchase an annual DNV Park Pass for an annual fee of $10, according to a staff report to the council that will be discussed on January 25.
However, the requirement is that park passes must be displayed in vehicles similar to Resident Parking Only (RPO) parking passes.
Vehicles displaying a disability card issued by the Social Planning and Research Council of BC (SPARC) will also be exempt from payment at the lot.
The rate for non-residents would be $3 per hour, for a maximum of three hours.
Lynn Canyon Park’s west parking lot (accessed from Peters Road) has had a maximum time restriction of 3 hours in place for several years, and that limit will remain.
The Lynn Canyon Park east parking lot, which is accessed from Lillooet Road east of Lynn Creek, will remain free of charge.
DNV is working with Metro Vancouver on the pilot project for Lynn Canyon park and Lynn Headwaters Regional Park, although the district has no jurisdiction over Lynn Headwaters Regional Park.
Lynn Canyon Park attracts over a million visitor each year, with parking lot demand reaching 2,500 vehicles per day during peak summer periods.
DNV expects revenue from the project to be between $250,000 and $480,000 per season, and may expand the project to other parks in the future.
