“Vancouver's best view both ways!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Lived in Vancouver since 1986 - this bridge view never fails to blow you away. A high green ribbon of traffic elevated above and connecting Vancouver's Stanley Park to North Vancouver. Walk it, drive it, take your bicycle across it - all outstanding. Three lands of traffic that two by ne share this bridge based on ying-yang North South bridge demand. I prefer the Southern route as you get to see downtown off to your left and Stanley Park and the Pacific Ocean to your right. Inspiring every time even if you are crawling or doing 50km/hour.

“spectacular scenic bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Reminds me of Golden Gate in SF - not surprising, since designed by same man. Spectacular from a distance, from close up, and from the bridge itself.

“Nice to walk over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I am happy I took some time walking over the bridge. Toronto doesn't have any such bridges and for me it was exciting to walk across a long bridge like that. Plus, one side of bridge (south to north direction) offers a good city view.

“Not really much to say”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

It's a nice blue bridge. It has a long span and looks good when you sail a boat under it. Other than that, it's no Golden Gate.

“Exercise and a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Being lucky with the weather with a fine sunny day, we walked from Grouse Inn across to Stanley Park. A good way to see the harbour and the mountains.
