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!

On April 25th, the Lynn Valley Community Association and Lynn Valley Seniors Association were planning to work together on the 2020 Lynn Valley Park Project.
With the recommendation of physical distancing and for the safety of all involved, we have had to cancel the yearly event.
But keep it in mind! We’re planning to be back next spring and we’d like you to join us! Below is a description of what happens at our Park Projects….
“The work will be basic gardening, removing invasive plants, planting natural vegetation, laying down mulch, cleaning litter and anything else that needs to be done with the support of the DNV Parks Department.
We have work for every level of physical ability so all ages and stages are welcome. Dress for the weather, as this is a rain-or-shine event! Sturdy boots or shoes, working clothes and gloves are recommended, as it could be muddy! if we are blessed with sunshine, remember the hats and sunscreen. Look for our LVCA tent to check in. *You will need to bring your own water bottle.”
