Nature and history abound at the 27- acre Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, just minutes from the bustle of downtown Vancouver. Set within the unique environment of British Columbia’s cedar-scented rainforest, the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Treetops Adventure, and brand new Cliffwalk allow you to delve into nature’s beauty while kicking up the adrenaline.
Originally built in 1889, the 450 foot long Capilano Suspension Bridge soars 230 feet above the Capilano River and is your gateway to the forest beyond. Take your time crossing this magnificent structure while enjoying the spectacular view of the canyon and river below.
Upon reaching the other side you’ll discover the Treetops Adventure, a series of seven interconnected suspension bridges that travel high above the forest floor through the lush evergreen foliage of towering Douglas firs. Viewing platforms nestled into the tree canopy give you a squirrel’s eye view of a thriving coastal forest.
But for a real thrill, the awe-inspiring Cliffwalk is not to be missed. New for 2011, this amazing walkway juts out from the granite cliff of Capilano Canyon and takes guests to areas of the park that were previously unexplored. High and narrow, Cliffwalk is not for the feint of heart. A series of cantilevered, suspended walkways hug the face of the cliff and in some sections, a path of glass is all that separates you from the canyon below.
Beyond these main activities, there are plenty of ways to explore the rich history and unique ecosystem of the park. Interactive displays and informative panels offer insight into the forest’s ecology with fun facts and identification clues. Guided history tours are offered hourly and are a great way to learn about the park’s colorful past. A stroll through majestic evergreens and past tranquil ponds with one of the park’s naturalists is a fantastic way to learn about the flora and fauna of the old growth rain forest and discovery the mysteries of this unique Vancouver environment.
It was a great experience with spectacular views of the surrounding areas from great heights. Gave us a better appreciation of nature. We need to take care and preserve them for future generations to come.
Go do this -- walking shoes -- and Watch Your Step -- I saw people fall down stairs and collide because they weren't paying strict attention to their footwork. The canopy tree-to-tree bridges are great.
This is my second time to Capalino Suspension Bridge with a 15 years in between.
There are more attractions now other than the bridge to explore but the bridge is still my very favourite.
We went as a family and we all throughly enjoyed our day here
This was a really nice morning activity that my boyfriend and I did. We arrived as it opened at 8 AM which was super nice to have the place basically to ourselves. They do have parking, but it is a paid one at $7.00 Canadian Dollars, however, we decided to drive to get there right at 8 AM. Lots of gorgeous spots to take pictures as well as a beautiful sound of nature. Highly recommended.
Fantastic experience for short stay in Vancouver area!

This park is beautifully kept ! There are numerous tree top walks and cliff walks in addition to the suspension bridge. All boardwalks are very sturdy and in excellent condition. There is useful and educational information posted all over the park which make it interesting and informative. The park is laid out in an organized fashion so that you can walk across the bridge, walk the treetop walk, go back across the bridge and wal k the cliff walk The free shuttle is a bonus and the one bus driver was excellent as he provided useful tourist info as we travelled back into town. A great way to spend a few hours, esp with kids! We had come in off a cruise ship and were picked up right at Canada place for this nice short excursion
