Neighbourhood in North Vancouver, BC
Lynn Valley is the best of both worlds. Real estate here is a bit removed from the hustle and the bustle of North Vancouver and the surrounding area abounds with trails for hiking and biking through parks and near creeks...
The Lynn Valley area was initially known as Shaketown. It is assumed that it was so named because of the shake-sided shacks that housed the first lumberjacks, cooks and blacksmiths. Others are under the impression that the name came from the cedar shakes produced by the mill.
The best of both worlds is a term that suits living in Lynn Valley. Located at the northern edge of North Vancouver, residents soon forget that they are still part of the lower mainland region of British Columbia encompassing a population of nearly three million people. In fact, life in Lynn Valley is more akin to the natural havens of Banff or Whistler than an urban metropolis. However, with that said, Lynn Valley is not “out in the sticks" so to speak. It has access to all the amenities one should expect from a major city.
Those who have made Lynn Valley home may wonder what all this fuss is about since the area itself is host to world renowned mountain biking at nearby Mount Seymour and Mount Fromme and is home to some of the best known parks in the province including Lynn Headwaters Regional Park, Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve and Lynn Canyon Park. The ski resorts Mount Seymour and Grouse Mountain are also in the vicinity. Lynn Valley is serviced by Vancouver's revered transit system, allowing plenty of access without the use of your car.
Mountain Highway, the main artery from the waterfront up to Lynn Valley, was originally known as Center Road. It was a path used by the oxen pulling the felled logs down to Moodyville waterfront. Lynn Valley was named after the pioneer family of John Linn, when they settled the area in 1869.
Apart from a few town homes, Lynn Valley is comprised of individual homes and the Lynn Valley Shopping Centre provides an array of shops and conveniences. As of 2007, Lynn Valley has experienced a surge in housing prices, along with much of Vancouver, with average prices near $1 million.
