Create an itinerary including Capilano Suspension Bridge Park
Don't look down as you cross over a 70 m (230 ft) deep valley in Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. The park's star attraction, a 140 m (460 ft) suspension bridge, was originally built in 1889 and was completely reconstructed in 1956. Once you've made it across, lose yourself in the jungle canopy via a network of seven treetop walks built in 2004. You can add to your experience with an eco-tour through the surrounding forest.

  • Absolutely beautiful! Felt like I was in a Jurassic Park movie set. Be sure to not miss the Cliff walk. Best to go late afternoon. Enjoy dinner there (best truffle fries Ive ever had!!!) then walk...

  • Suspension bridge in the forest. Many catwalks in the sky and a cliff walk. Beautiful setting. For the holidays, it is lit up with extraordinary lights. We went at 3:30pm so we could walk through in.....  more

  • I think this park would be most enjoyed by families with adventurous kids or adults that are excited by heights. Being neither, we found the enjoyment that we got from the park to be a bit unworthy of the cost. The main feature, the suspension bridge, is very cool. I liked learning about it and traversing it a few times back and forth. But that bridge is simply not worth the $66 (CAD) adult ticket. And the other additions to the park (the cliff walk, the treetop adventure, and the neat birds) didn't quite make up the difference for us either. Especially when you can find a suspension bridge (that is not quite as high or as long) a short drive away at Lynn Creek Canyon for free. So again, I think for families with kids, this would probably be a really fun way to spend an afternoon. Do keep in mind that everything cool in the park requires you to cross the 270ft/70m high bridge that moves with every step someone makes. So if your kid (or you for that matter) can't make it over the bridge, then you can't access any of the other park features except the cliff walk, the gift shop, and the restaurants. As an additional note, we were there while the special Halloween decorations were up and we really loved that addition. We also saw that a Christmas light display would be following it. This DID add to the value for us and I would recommend that other try to time their visits to the park with some thing special like that.
  • The trip to Capilano was beautiful and far exceeded our already high expectations. Free shuttle to and from the Hyatt downtown on a clean coach bus, beautiful 20min drive to the park. No wait to get in, not crowded, quite peaceful (we went on a Wed around 4pm, perfect time to avoid crowds and get the evening discount). I have never been to a park so clean, well constructed and finished so beautifully. The bridge itself is very cool, but the other add-on courses/trails were an extra bonus. There is a treetop bridge course, a pond trail, and a nature’s edge walk. All trails are wood-boarded so you don’t have to worry about mud/getting your shoes dirty. The views are spectacular, of the mountains, water below, and the vast forest surrounding. Very well done. As someone who is not a huge nature person, I absolutely loved the experience. Very much worth the trip, and you get a bang for your buck. One of my favourite things we did while in Vancouver. Thank you Capilano for an amazing time!
