Need something to do while in Downtown Vancouver but don’t want to go too far from the city or adventure too deep into the woodland? Capilano Suspension Bridge Park has you covered. A 15-minute drive from downtown Vancouver is all you need to make for a convenient, easy, and daring adventure.
Daring? This bridge can bring out some courage. The bridge is 140 m/460 ft. long and 70 m/230 ft. high, swaying over the Capilano River. Honestly, the bridge can be crossed with ease and swiftness without worry of slipping or falling. Even your friend who may be scared of heights can handle this one!
Massive shout out to Colin, our talented friend, who took many of these photos on this post, and has a unique eye for spots! Mahalo, Colin!
We love history and reasoning for things. There are little posts like these throughout the area to explain the different seasons, wildlife, and progress of the park. Really awesome little things this park has to offer.
After crossing the bridge, the opposite side offered another restroom and a quick coffee shop. There are more suspension bridges that lead up to some amazing and massive trees houses; It’s like we had entered Endor. The views got more beautiful as we continued and became even more shocked that this raw beauty was only a 15-minute drive from a busy city.
This park is a perfect example of man’s cohesiveness with nature. The suspension bridge felt very natural (as can be) and grand in its right. The small waterfalls and abundant life we witness around there were very comforting. We had a great time visiting, and it was all that we hoped it would be. We had a great time spending a couple hours here with our friends; Molly, Irek, Colin, Kim, & Phil!
