AAA Editor Notes

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is off Hwy. 1 exit 14, then 2 km (1.2 mi.) n. to 3735 Capilano Rd.; a free shuttle is available from several locations in downtown Vancouver. The swinging 137-metre-long (450-ft.) footbridge spans a 70-metre-deep (230-ft.) densely wooded gorge above the Capilano River. George Grant Mackay, a Scottish civil engineer, built the original bridge in 1889 from hemp rope and cedar planks; the fourth structure on the site is reinforced with steel cables and concrete. The park also features gardens; a totem park; Treetops Adventure, a series of seven suspension bridges high in the treetops; Cliffwalk, a cliffside walkway with a rock-climber's view of the canyon; and a story center that displays artifacts of the bridge. The Living Forest includes interactive displays and naturalist exhibits which guide visitors through a West Coast rain forest. Wheelchairs are not permitted on the bridge. Food is available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
$37.95; $34.95 (ages 65+); $30.95 (students with ID); $24.95 (ages 13-16); $12 (ages 6-12).
