I have been going to the Capilano Suspension Bridge since my first trip to Vancouver when I was 8. And you know how something that seems so large and impressive to you when you are little can sometimes be a lame disappointment when you get older and re-experience it? Not so with the Capilano Suspension Bridge and the surrounding park. It has gotten better and been an amazing thing we have shared now with all of our kids on numerous occasions. Even one time a week after knee surgery where I had to leave my crutches behind and walk across…it was a miracle!
There is a trading post and all sorts of entertainment on the entrance side of the park. They have exhibits and art from British Columbia’s First Nations people and you are able to learn the history and story of the totem poles.
Then cross the swaying suspension bridge, which has been transporting visitors across the canyon into the West Coast Rain Forest since 1889-and you will be able to experience the newest parts of the park on the other side. A treetop canopy adventure, giving you a bird’s eye view of the ecology of the rain forest. There is also a cliff walk and a number of self guided trails.
