If your in Vancouver, walk along Georgia Street W/B, you will enter the Stanley Park causeway area, it's a nice walk despite the traffic, you will reach a beautiful view at the entrance to the bridge, the towers rising above. You will get... More

When seeking out this landmark, we took the route through Stanley Park not knowing any better. This puts you over the bridge, which honestly works much better for pictures and catching the lookout point for the mountains. There is a restaurant up here that was closed at the time and a gift shop as well. I had seen pictures of... More

A long suspension bridge connecting North/West Vancouver, we viewed from Stanley Park on a rainy day but it was worth having a look at.

This pretty suspension bridge -- 364 feet high and 5,981 feet long -- opened in 1938. It crosses the first narrows of Burrard Inlet and connects Vancouver with North Vancouver and West Vancouver. The bridge got its name from twin peaks in the North Shore mountains rather than the concrete lions on its South approach. Though it has become a... More

The Lion's Gate Bridge is a stunning piece of engineering painted in a striking green colour. Built and possibly still owned by the Guinness family it is one of the ways of reaching North Vancouver from Downtown. The view from the bridge whilst driving over it is pretty great and worth slowing down a little to take in especially with... More

Saw the bridge along the seawall and also drove over it to get to the capilano suspension bridge. Beautiful sight and backdrop for photos and very enjoyable to drive over with water below and mountains ahead :)

Very impressive to look at from both sides of Vancouver. Equally impressive to drive over in both directions.

An impressive sight and long bridge, the Lion's Gate Bridge is easily seen from Stanley Park's Prospect Point or the shores of North Vancouver. We drove over it a few times, once heading to the Capilano Suspension Bridge and once to Whistler. It is a beautiful drive whether it is daytime or nighttime.

I was driving to reach my hotel and I had to pass on the Lions Gate Bridge. I knew was something worth to be seen so I decided to slow down a little. I am happy I did because the view from the bridge is really nice and the bridge itself is a nice piece of engineering...it somehow reminded me... More

Opened in 1938 it is 5,890 feet long. There are great views of the bridge from Prospect Point in Stanley Park and we drove over it a few times whilst visiting Grouse Mountain and the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
