Lynn Valley has a great suspension bridge, so if you don't feel like spending the $20 (or so) at the Capilano Suspension Bridge, then this is the perfect alternative!
There is a great network of trails in this park, most of which follows along Lynn Creek, and you will be completely surrounded by big cedars!
If you enjoy hiking, then you can plan on spending at least 3-4 hours here. The trails are not difficult to hike.
This park has a small consession stand, and washrooms.
You can bring your dog to this park, but they will need to stay on the leash. The admission to the park is free, and by donation if you wish to browse through the Ecology Centre.

Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge is the smaller, free version of the Capilano River Suspension Bridge in North Vancouver. The Capilano River Suspension Bridge is the more popular location, but is pricey and very touristy with gift shops and restaurants and lots of people milling around. It's quite expensive just to walk across the suspension bridge.
Instead, travel about 10 minutes east in North Vancouver, and you'll come to Lynn Canyon. The suspension bridge here is 20 stories above the canyon floor and is free to traverse. In addition, the Lynn Canyon Park is a great location to hike, picnic, and enjoy the great outdoors in the rain forest and river areas. A wooden bridge 20 minutes downstream crosses the river at Twin Falls. Ten minutes upstream from the suspension bridge is a great place for swimming--30 Foot Pool.
This is no major attraction, but it is a great place to relax and kick back after a busy week of sightseeing. About the only thing that resembles a tourist site is a tiny trailer at the entrance to the suspension bridge where you can buy a drink and limited snacks. There is no charge for admission to the park, parking your car, or walking the bridge. Enjoy.
