“experience nature from above”
CLIFFWALK is the park’s newest attraction – a cantilevered walkway clinging to the granite cliff high above Capilano Canyon. This is the newest of the activities at Vancouver’s Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Open June 3, 2011, this heart-stopping cliffside journey takes you through rainforest vegetation on a series of unobtrusive cantilevered and suspended walkways jutting out from the granite cliff face above Capilano River to previously unexplored areas of the park. Not for the faint of heart, it is high and narrow and, in some sections, glass (very strong glass) is all that separates guests from the canyon far below. Follow in the footsteps of the millions of visitors who have crossed Capilano Suspension Bridge since 1889. Voices from Vancouver’s past mingle with the sounds of nature, beautiful gardens skirt colourful totem poles, British Columbia First Nations artisans chiseled legend into cedar and Capilano Suspension Bridge takes you to the serenity of a West Coast rainforest. Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Vancouver, British Columbia. The reason is simple, there are so many things to see and do! 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 twenty-seven acre park. 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.
I really like that place. Pretty interesting to be there and I would say it's a very good hiking experience.
Really cool. Once. also really expensive! If you just want to get out into nature than go next door to lynn canyon as its free and awesome for hiking! But if your here to see the suspension bridge, skywalk and get the full experience its definitely worth it!
Walking on this bridge is harder than you would expect, because it tilts from side to side depending on where other people are walking/standing. Also, a sign at the park claims this simple suspension bridge can bear the weight of at least two fully-loaded 747s!
Geez 90 bucks for the 2 of us to walk over a bridge what a rip off ! We did all the sky walks things too but found it rather boring and was done in less than an hour . If you are the type that likes hiking and does not Iike crowds then give this a miss and just get out to see some real nature for free
Truly one of the most daring experiences I've had in nature. I've always been a little squeamish with heights, but this is one place where the view is worth it. There's a brochure before you cross the rope bridge that states it's as high as the Statue of Liberty's shoulder.
The bridge does swing with all of the traffic going across on it, so you want to make sure you hold your phone/camera with both hands, but you'll definitely want to get photos upstream and downstream. There's even a vantage point in the park where you can look back and see exactly where you crossed.
I also really enjoyed the Tree Village where you can walk from treehouse to treehouse while in the tree canopy. There are several signs that point out local wildlife and describe the rainforest in which you're standing. It's straight out of an Ewok adventure but with history.
Cliffwalk is their newest attraction and allows you to walk out into the canyon from a path that is attached to the mountain wall hundreds of feet above the ground.
There are also several eateries, an opportunity to see falcons and owls, and First Nations totem poles throughout the park.
A pleasant surprise! Beautiful views and we learnt a lot from the staff! Free bus shuttle and free nature and historic telling!
You do need a head for heights to get real value out of this. We like to go in the Holidays as they have the world's biggest Christmas tree there. There's also some other none height related stuff such as making your own glass tree ornament as well as the biggest tourist gift shop in Vancouver (better than it sounds). Another bonus is that dogs are allowed into the park so Fido can enjoy the fun too.
Not for the faint of heart... Although our entire family is wary of heights, but we had an amazing day here. The park is very well presented, and the attractions engaging. If you are in the area and looking for something a little bit different, I highly recommend that you stop in for a visit.
What a delightful and thrill-filled experience!
