Capilano Suspension Bridge Park attracts about 800,000 visitors every year. The main attraction is a 'people only' 446 foot long foot bridge suspended a dizzying 230 feet above the Capilano River. The original bridge was built in 1889 by Scottish engineer and parks commissioner George Grant Mackay using hemp rope and cedar planks providing access to his remote cabin. In 1903 the suspension bridge was reconstructed using more robust wire cable and in 1956 it was rebuilt again.

The current owner (since 1983) added the Treetops Adventures attraction - a series of seven footbridges suspended between large Douglas Fir trees. The footbridges offer visitors the unique perspective of viewing the forest from up in the trees.

In 2011 Cliffwalk, a thrilling series of walkways and platforms cantilevered out from the canyon's granite cliffs opened. Definitely not for the faint of heart!

Park guests can also view nature trails, gardens and totem poles. All told, the park offers visitors a great way to experience the rugged nature of the West Coast.

You'll definitely want to visit the park in December. Hundreds of thousands of colorful lights and floodlights transform the park with a dazzling holiday display. You'll also witness the tallest live Christmas tree in the world! This is a great way to get into the festive spirit. A portion of the proceeds help the BC Professional Fire Fighter’s Burn Fund.

The park is easy access by public transit, but they also provide guests a convenient year-round free shuttle bus service that makes scheduled pick-ups at numerous downtown Vancouver locations throughout the day.

Capilano Suspension Bridge is a privately owned attraction and admission charges do apply. The park is open every day except Christmas. Hours of operation vary through the year, so please see their official website for details.

4 Star Rating We had an amazing day, quite pricey, but we went off season and bought the tickets online, which helped alot. Being off season there were still large amount of people, I suggest getting there early to enjoy all the views and nature at your own pace. We would definitely go back. Our son is still living in BC so he got his residence card, which is a nice benefit for any future visits he may like to do.

5 Star Rating We had a great time at the bridge! I would highly recommend getting the free annual pass if you are a BC resident. Also, I would recommend taking on the free tours that leave on the hour by the entrance - we learned a lot! It get a little chilly as the day gets on but there are far fewer visitors which makes it easier to take pictures and feel less rushed.

4 Star Rating Great place to visit Check out the history and nature tours which is included in the entry fee. Both are interesting and about 20 minutes each. The tree top platforms is OK. The cliff walk is kinda neat. Would be awesome if they put in some zip lining in the park.

5 Star Rating This was my favorite place near Vancouver to visit. I feel like I got great value for the money spent because they have so much to see. The bridge is a lovely work of art, and it is only the start of it. The treetop suspension bridges are awesome and seeing those massive trees makes you lost in the history of it. The Cliff walk was a fantastic addition to the Park.
