This beautiful park located just off the Sea to Sky Highway corridor is one of the region's most popular seeing over half a million visitors annually, coming to view Shannon Falls. Visible from the Highway, the falls rise 335 meters (1,015 feet) up into the mountains roaring down to the rocks and Shannon Creek below. Including hiking trails (as well as trail access to Stawamus Chief), amenities and a picnic area, Shannon Falls is a popular day trip in the Squamish region.

This Provincial Park located at the base of Stawamus Chief is home to the third highest falls in the world rising 335 meters above Shannon Creek below.

Shannon Falls is the Park's biggest draw. Visible from the Sea to Sky Highway, the falls originate from the glaciers of Mount Habrich and Mount Sky Pilot. Throughout the park there are several trails leading to various viewing areas to see the falls as well as along Shannon Creek and through the forest. Picnic tables are also on site and there is a trail leading to the adjoining Stawamus Chief Park which also has a trail leading to the top of the falls.

There are many amenities on site - the picnic area has many tables, as well a nearby concession stand sells snacks and drinks to Park visitors. Public restrooms are also found in the Park.

The falls were originally named by a man with the surname Shannon who sold the land to the Britannia Copper Mines who used the area as a camp for workers. It was then sold to Carling O'Keefe Brewery who used the glacial water for their beer brewing operations and later donated the land to BC Parks. Since 1982 the land has been publically owned and offers visitors a place to enjoy the West Coast wilderness.

Shannon Falls Provincial Park is a great place to enjoy a few hours exploring the area and viewing the beautiful waterfall.
