Order of the Regional Director [PDF]

BC Parks has closed this park; this includes all associated access, e.g.; trails and parking lots.

This decision has been made to ensure the continued health and safety of BC Parks visitors, employees, park contractors, volunteers and partners, and to support efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

June 20, 2016: BC Parks is implementing a parking enforcement policy at Shannon Falls Provincial Park.

Provincial parks along the Sea-to-Sky corridor have experienced exceptional growth in visitor numbers, leading to parking congestion and illegally parked vehicles. Public safety is paramount for BC Parks, and new parking policies are being put in place to ensure safe access for all.

Visitors must park in designated parking lots and observe the “no parking” signs posted. Effective July 4, 2016 BC Parks will be implementing a tow-away policy for any vehicles parked illegally.

Visitor Services

Shannon Falls Welcome Centre is an excellent place to stop on trips in the Sea to Sky Corridor.  The Center is well stocked with post cards, souvenirs, snacks, hot and cold beverages, ice-cream and exclusive Stawamus Chief and Shannon Falls T-shirts. Staff at the Center are an excellent source of information on the history of the park and falls and can provide literature on accommodation and offer advice on things to see and do on your trip in the Sea to Sky Corridor.

About Shannon Falls

There are two viewing platforms for the falls just a short walk from the parking lot. Visitors can also access the hiking trails up the famed Stawamus Chief.
