Features and Things To Do:
Scenic Canyon Regional Park officially opened in May 2005 in conjunction with the opening of Phase 2 of the Mission Creek Greenway.
Highlights in this park include hiking trails, a riparian zone with a mature cedar grove, heritage, and geological formations.
Cultural sites include gold mining activity in placer gold pits, early settlement of Dan Gallagher, and rock ovens used by Chinese labourers.
Spectacular geologic features can be seen from trail viewpoints including Layer Cake Mountain, Pinnacle Rock, canyon walls and rock Hoodoos.
Scenic Canyon Regional Park is 89.4 hectares of natural area adjacent to Gallaghers Canyon Golf Course and neighbourhood.
Dogs must be kept on a leash on trails and pathways within park boundaries unless otherwise designated. Owners must clean up after their pet and safely dispose of any waste material.
The park is open daylight hours during the spring, summer and fall. The parking area is closed during the winter months, providing limited access to the park.
Overnight camping, open fires and smoking are not allowed in this park.

Scenic Canyon Regional Park's parking lot is located at the end of Field Road. Take McCulloch Road to Field Road. The parking lot entrance is just before the Gallaghers Golf Course subdivision entrance.
