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. Each year, from late November through Christmas, “Canyon Lights” has the bridge, Treetops Adventure, Cliffwalk and rainforest twinkling with lights, and visitors can view what may be the world’s tallest living Christmas tree. Wheelchairs are not permitted on the bridge. Food is available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
