Nice the view but need to add lanes

The bridge is very beautiful, however there is only 3 lanes for both directions traffic. It caused both sides traffic jams in all time that I think it need to be improved.

This suspension bridge is aging, but is impressive nevertheless, spanning The Narrows from Stanley Park to North Vancouver. Great views of the bridge from Stanley Park.

This is a lovely bridge with a great view of the city and though it is noisy, it is well worth the trip across.

We wanted to cross the bridge by foot from Stanley park to Capilano RV park, not the best idea. Despites it offers quite a nice view over downtown, it is way to noisy and you have to be careful that the bikers don't crash into you.

Nice views of Vancouver and the Pacific ocean while crossing this green bridge, almost like crossing the golden gate.

The history, the view of the mountains and the harbor and the walkway make this gem a must see. We hopped off the bus and planned on just snapping a photo and hopping back on, we stayed and we're just mesmerized by the view. I understand it can be a logistical traffic nightmare for commuters but for visitors , just... More

I love this bridge. It's massive, it's beautiful, and it's a great walk or a bike ride. It's just an fantastic piece of architecture and lovely to look at. Stay away during rush hours though!

Terrific pedestrian and bike lanes for some amazing views! A tough bike on the inclines, but an exhilarating ride down the other side. Truly beautiful views.

Very interesting bridge to bike or walk over. Best place for a picture is from the road that circles Stanley Park. Just don't try to drive it unless you like stop and go traffic.
