Spirit Trail crossing over Lynn Creek

To help promote active transportation and outdoor recreation on the North Shore, we are completing a key connection in the Spirit Trail, between Lynn Creek Town Centre and Park & Tilford.

We expect work to begin in summer 2021, and last about one year. This new, central section will run through Bridgeman Park, and will include a four-metre wide, multi-use bridge across Lynn Creek at the west end of Hunter Street. The bridge will also connect the newly created section of the trail that runs through Seylynn Park with the section that is under construction along the north side of Highway 1.

The Spirit Trail is a vital recreation and active transportation route that spans all three North Shore municipalities and First Nations lands, from Deep Cove to Horseshoe Bay.
