If you are a local or visitor and it's raining, this is a good place to spend an hour or more. Especially fun for little kids and possibly up to age of 12. Educational

If you're planning on going to the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge, then take a few extra minutes and visit the Ecology Centre, it's only a few steps away. It's very informative about the area
