Shannon Falls


Parking Update: 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.

About Shannon Falls

Shannon Falls Provincial Park is located 3 kilometers south of Squamish along the eastern shore of Howe Sound adjacent to Highway 99.

The park contains the third highest waterfall in British Columbia. The spectacular falls cascade over a series of cliffs 335 meters high. The park includes day use picnic sites, water and restrooms. 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. The group picnic site in the park is ideal for weddings and family reunions.
