Murrin Park

Crown land is to be returned to Squamish Nation, including world-class rock climbing area near Murrin Provincial Park.
The province has promised to transfer several parcels of Crown land back to the Squamish Nation in exchange for the First Nation's support of the local Woodfibre LNG project.
