The Lynn Canyon park entrance and parking lot is now open to pedestrians and vehicles. The park has been open since Saturday, January 25.
The park was closed because a culvert located across the access road was being replaced.
The suspension bridge, however, remains closed at this time, as maintenance crews will be working on the suspension bridge decking and structure for maintenance.
New parking spaces, better way-finding signage and pedestrian access are also some of the safety improvements District of North Vancouver will carry out at the entrance of the Lynn Canyon Park.
Every year, nearly one million people visit the Lynn Canyon Park, and visitor counts to the park can peak at upwards of about 2,500 vehicles during peak times.
As part of the improvements, DNV will create 11 new parking spaces. Four accessible parking spots will be added in the upper lot near the Ecology Centre besides seven regular parking spots.
Eliminating blind spots by improving sight lines, making accessible pathways into and throughout parking areas, new signage for traffic and way-finding, and storm water infiltration to improve water drainage are some of the other improvements being planned.
The district also plans to create safer drop-off zones for buses and groups visiting the Ecology Centre. There are also plans to improve entry area for vehicles and access for first responders.
