Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Bridge crosses to towering evergreens, cedar-scented rainforest air, and Treetops Adventure, with its seven suspended footbridges offering views 110 feet above the forest floor. Originally built in 1889, Capilano Suspension Bridge stretches 450 feet (137m) across and 230 feet (70m) above Capilano River. Since then, much has been added to the 27-acre park. CLIFFWALK is the park’s newest attraction – a cantilevered walkway clinging to the granite cliff high above Capilano Canyon.
Treetops Adventure, seven suspension bridges through the evergreens taking you up to 100 feet (30m) above the forest floor, offers a unique squirrel’s eye perspective of the forest. Guided nature tours, the Kids’ Rainforest Explorer program, and the Living Forest exhibit enhance this unique rainforest encounter. Enjoy seasonal musical entertainment and First Nations culture. Take photos at the Totem Park and with the Capilano Tramps. Top it off with a visit to the gift shop full of quality merchandise from all over Canada and great homemade fudge. It’s all in a day’s fun at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park.
Celebrate Canyon Lights during the winter months, typically mid-November through January. Re-capture the feeling of wonder and excitement of the holiday season and be amazed by the hundreds of thousands of lights throughout the park. The suspension bridge, Treetops Adventure, Cliffwalk, the rainforest, and canyon are transformed into a world of festive lights and visual enchantment.
Once again, the 30-ton Douglas firs of Treetops Adventure will receive star treatment. These magnificent Douglas firs will be lit above and below the collars, making these trees the eight tallest Christmas trees in the world! Back by popular demand, go on a Snowy Owl Prowl, decorate gingerbread cookies (by donation) and sing-along carols with the holiday band.
