Lovely old bridge

Saw this bridge a number of times, from Stanley Park, on a dinner cruise, then crossed it many times.

Beautiful structure adds great charm to pictures.. reminds one of the Golden Gate bride. Must see views of the bridge from the top of Stanley Park

This bridge is quite long and majestic. I've been on it several times. Mostly by bike and Electric Scooter. The view is amazing when it's during sunset though! Do come to take pictures!

This bridge is copy of the Sanfransisco Golgen Gate bridge. Everything is in proportion as it is a much smaller bridge. There is a nice viewing area from Stanley Park.

From far away, it looks fairly ordinary but underneath and on the bridge itself, it's quite impressive. Make sure to check this out if you're in Vancouver

Not really sure how to review a bridge! This bridge makes a great backdrop while taking pics in Stanley Park, adds a bit of drama to your pics :)

The Lions Gate bridge enjoys a dramatic setting not unlike the Golden Gate. In my opinion, the best view is while sailing under but there is a delightful view to be had from Stanley Park looking down on the length of the bridge.

Super place to go to get a fantastic view of the harbor and gateway to the city. In particular when the ships are coming in. Add on a Stanley Park visit to round it out.

Lions gate bridge is nice to see BUT getting there and the area around the viewing area is great. We hired bikes at English bay and rode thru Stanley park on bicycle paths and stopped at many interesting spots including Lions gate and then continued to the Seawall. So overall it was excellent. Allow 15 minutes to see the bridge... More

Connects north Vancouver to the downtown Vancouver. Packed solid on weekends and in the evenings. Kind of interesting to travel it but I wouldn't think those afraid of heights would like it. Two big lions heads at the entrance, hence the name.

Staying in Stanley Park

Neighborhood Profile
Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views, beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical getaway spot for friends and families, especially as it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its best equestrian outlets.
