Each year, the District of North Vancouver recognizes and honours special projects and accomplishments in the field of heritage conservation with Community Heritage Awards.
Lynn Valley Community Association (LVCA) is proud to be awarded the 2020 Heritage Advocacy Award for the Lynn Valley LINK trail kiosks.
Through the hard work of LVCA volunteers and district parks staff – and the leadership of local residents Suzanne and Gabriel Mazoret, the LINK started in 2016 with the initial opening on September 16th, 2017 and was completed at the end of 2019.
A collaborative project between LVCA and the District, the LINK spans 14.5 kilometres in Lynn Valley creating a loop that connects at five trailheads — Lynn Canyon Park, Inter River Park, Kirkstone Park, Princess Park and Fromme Mountain — and combines segments of the Baden Powell Trail, Dempsey Trail, featuring several informational kiosks that highlight the history and heritage of Lynn Valley with historical information and photos specific to the immediate area.
The LINK Kiosks are an excellent example of providing a tangible way of discovering heritage within our community.
We are proud and honoured!
