Friends of Cypress Provincial Park Society (FCPP) is a registered charity dedicated to the protection of Cypress Park's natural environment and associated values. The organization was founded in 1990. See About Us for more information.

Cypress Provincial Park is located in the North Shore mountains above West Vancouver, British Columbia, and extends beyond the Lions to Deeks Lake. The park's 2100 hectare southern section contains the most easily accessible Mountain Hemlock Zone old-growth forests and subalpine wetlands in the Lower Mainland. Recreational opportunities include hiking, wildlife viewing, nature study, snowshoeing, snowboarding, and all forms of skiing. This section of the park is accessible by paved road from the Upper Levels Highway (Hwy 1 and 99) in West Vancouver. Take Exit 8 north and continue up the Cypress Bowl Road. The park's southern section can also be reached by hiking trails through West Vancouver.

The park's rugged 900 hectare northern section includes Deeks Lake and Brunswick Mountain and is accessible only by hiking trails from Highway 99 or along the Howe Sound Crest Trail from the park's southern section.
