POINTS OF INTEREST & ATTRACTIONS

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park

The Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is home to three exciting attractions! The first and most notable (which also happens to be Vancouver’s oldest attraction) is the suspension bridge itself spanning 140 metres across and 70 metres above the Capilano River below. After crossing the bridge, experience Treetop Adventures, a series of eight smaller bridges and platforms amongst the 250-year-old Douglas Fir trees. The park’s newest addition is the Cliffwalk, a suspended walkway following the side of a granite cliff 90 metres above the Capilano River.

Grouse Mountain

Take the Skyride Gondola to the Peak of Vancouver and appreciate the true beauty of downtown Vancouver and beyond. Enjoy light hiking trails, wildlife exhibits, and Theatre in the Sky. Be sure to visit the resident Grizzly Bears, Grinder and Coola, at the Habitat for Endangered Wildlife. Enjoy relaxing on the patio as you watch hikers push themselves to the limits while completing the Grouse Grind.

Capilano Salmon Hatchery

Set alongside the Capilano River surrounded by rainforest, the Capilano Salmon Hatchery is a not-for-profit dedicated to the conservation of the Pacific salmon population. Take in the rainforest air, learn about the life cycle of these incredible species and see first-hand the positive ecological efforts produced by the hatchery while you explore this picturesque west coast setting.
