Owner description: Only 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver, allow 2 - 3 hours for your visit to Vancouver's iconic Capilano Suspension Bridge, hanging 450 feet (137m) across and 230 feet (70m) above Capilano River. The park offers more than just the bridge. Its surrounding 27 acres celebrate nature, history and culture in unique and thrilling ways. No more so than with the newest attraction, CLIFFWALK. Cliffwalk hangs for 213m (700ft) and reaches 91m (300ft) high, hugging the granite cliffside and offering a panoramic view of the thriving rainforest and canyon far below. On Treetops Adventure venture from one magnificent old growth Douglas-fir to another on a series of seven elevated suspension bridges, reaching as high as 110 feet (33m), for a squirrel's eye view of the forest. Guides, signage and interactive exhibits throughout the park help you in your understanding of rainforest ecosystems and their sustainability.

We spend a full day walking in this beautiful park. Apart from the rain, we had a wonderful time and free raincoats were provided on request. It is well maintained.

One of the most popular attractions in North Vancouver, easily accessible by car from downtown. We parked across the street from the entrance (ticket price was reasonable!). So cheap to park anywhere in Vancouver! The Suspension Bridge was daunting for people who have fear of heights. We challenged ourselves and with knees shaking, managed the length of the bridge without any incident. We even took pictures for souvenir midway. Once across, you get to explore several bridges connecting to tall trees. Very educational experience. Also survived the cliff edge where you virtually walk along a metal bridge along the side of the cliff. We browsed the gifts hop for souvenirs. A very memorable experience! Please wear comfortable shoes for safety.

The park is much more than a suspension bridge: we were here with the 4yrs old child and had a fantastic day! Totem poles, treetops pathways, kid's attractions, the cliffwalk and all the wolking in the rainforest with lakes, and well built wooden paths... I could have spent here the whole day, if only the grill had been open (in january...). Definitely worthy the price you pay.
At entrance, don't forget to take a map where you will stamo a seal at any attraction and before exit ask for you Capilano certificate!

We visited Capilano Suspension Bridge on a sunny day but being a rain forest, it was damp cold so be prepared. That being said, the park is very nice, clean and laid out well. The suspension bridge could be bouncy if there are many others walking it with you, or more serene if there are only a few. It's wide enough to not feel cramped and the rails are high enough so you won't feel like you're going to launch off it. The treetops adventure is interesting and educational. The cliff walk doesn't seem like much until you get out there and realize you are basically standing on air off the side of the cliff. You are on a railed walkway though so you get to see the side of a cliff the safe way. The views from all over the park are beautiful and they do their best to educate visitors about the environment. You do have to cross the suspension bridge to get to treetops and the majority of the park but not for the cliff walk. There are food, drinks and bathrooms available as well without crossing the bridge. There is a free shuttle to Capilano from several hotels in downtown Vancouver as well as Canada Place. From here we took a public bus to another attraction, then took the bus back here and caught the free shuttle back into Vancouver. It's included in your ticket price. You can purchase your ticket from several places in Vancouver including some hotels and the tourist information center at Canada Place.

I've been to the suspension bridge twice when we've had family come visit. Because I'm a resident of North Vancouver, I got a seasons pass for the same price. Even with a seasons pass, I never went back. I also lived 2 blocks from it at the time.

It's a long high suspension bridge. I don't know what else to say about that. On the other side they have some walkways that are up in the trees. On the entrance side there are a few little buildings that are cute. It looks nice lit up. There is a highly overpriced snack booth. And now there is the little walk around thing that stick out over the cliff. I mean, I really don't know what else to say about that.

It's actually on one of the less appealing parts of the river. It's at least $25 to go and if you walked it at a normal pace (of course you wouldn't, but just to gauge how big it is), you'd be back to your car in 10 minutes. Though most things in Vancouver are overpriced.

The point is North Vancouver is full of beautiful trails, bridges, rivers, and views. All of which are free! Go up the road a little and go to the fish hatchery. Even if you don't want to see the hatchery, there are lovely trails there in a much more lush part of the river. Just always use caution when on trails in north van. Every year tourist underestimate them due to their seemingly safe nature being so close to the city. Common sense and letting somebody know where you're headed go along way.
