Lower Seymour Conservation ReserveLower Seymour Conservation Reserve537440976http://www.metrovancouver.org/services/parks/PublishingImages/LSCR-photo.jpg<div class="ExternalClass69969AECFC6F4E08AD3BACF2F9731F53"><p>The 5,668-hectare Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve (LSCR) contains spectacular and rugged landscapes. Its alpine peaks, forested slopes, and pristine waters offer spectacular scenery and outdoor recreation opportunities. The Water Services department manages the LSCR to maintain its recreation, education, and environmental values in conjunction with its capacity as a water reserve. </p></div>

The historic Twin Bridges site in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve now has a new, higher and longer crossing over the Seymour River. The long-anticipated suspension bridge replaces the previous pedestrian bridge which was removed after the December 2014 Seymour River rock slide.

Inclement Weather

​Fall and winter are here bringing along inclement weather such as high winds, extreme rainfall and snow. During severe weather events, the LSCR (north of 2km) can be dangerous due to conditions including: debris torrents, flooding, high flows, stranding due to road washouts or tree failure from high winds. Please respect closure signage during these events.
