Only 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver, allow 2 - 3 hours for your visit to Vancouver's iconic Capilano Suspension Bridge, hanging 450 feet (137m) across and 230 feet (70m) above Capilano River. The park offers more than just the bridge. Its surrounding 27 acres celebrate nature, history and culture in unique and thrilling ways. No more so than with the newest attraction, CLIFFWALK. Cliffwalk hangs for 213m (700ft) and reaches 91m (300ft) high, hugging the granite cliffside and offering a panoramic view of the thriving rainforest and canyon far below. On Treetops Adventure venture from one magnificent old growth Douglas-fir to another on a series of seven elevated suspension bridges, reaching as high as 110 feet (33m), for a squirrel's eye view of the forest. Guides, signage and interactive exhibits throughout the park help you in your understanding of rainforest ecosystems and their sustainability.

Iconic Vancouver tourist stop
We visited Capilano Suspension Bridge Park on 13 May. We found it easy to catch the public bus to the location from Lonsdale Markets interchange. Even on a Monday, the park was very busy. We arrived at 10am, but seems park is opening at 9am during summer

Can Be a Madhouse
We stopped here (on visit from Seattle) on a Friday early afternoon, mostly sunny cool Spring day. Quite a few people for a weekday but not uncomfortably so. Can't imagine what a madhouse this must be on nice weekends and during Summer Tourist Season. Eve

Views are awesome
If I had researched the $80 US cost for the sky lift we wouldn’t have gone up. It would have been more worth it if more activities were available included in the price once we were on top. We did see the grisly bears. The wood sculptures were interesting.

Sleepy Hallow for peace and quiet
The Village of Deep Cove is tranquil, relaxing and somewhat spiritual. My favourite experience is sitting on bench over looking the water while watching life go by. Absolutely, beautiful on a clear sunny day. Quiet and still on an overcast day. Either way

Make sure you do this hike with water, it’s about 1.5 up and is a non stop climb. We went up and the lift was down so we had to walk down which was the scarier part.

Truly the peak of Vancouver
Beautiful views throughout the ride. Can see the mountain on one side and city of Vancouver on the other side. Its cheaper to get the pass if you will visit several times. Individual ticket only allows one ride up and down. Even if you are there for a day
