Tips For Staying Near Capilano Suspension Bridge

Location
In North Vancouver, the Capilano Suspension Bridge spans the Capilano River 450 feet across and 250 feet above the water.

The bridge itself is the main attraction of Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, although there are a number of other activities (see below).
more...
Entertainment
Besides the actual suspension bridge itself, a number of other attractions are available at the park. The park offers a Cliffwalk experience, in which visitors walk along narrow walkways suspended from a cliff's edge that wind through vegetation, sometimes with glass floors separating guests from the canyon floor. 

The Treetop experience features seven suspension bridges and viewing platforms high up in the treetops for guests to get a squirrel's eye view of the rainforest.

Guided tours are available through a number of companies, and often include more than just the bridge and park. The park itself also offers guided tours, explaining the history of the park, totem poles placed throughout, as well as an introduction to the ecology of the West Coast Rainforest. Tours operate hourly.

Other Tips
The park is open year round and rates are $31.95 for adults, $29.95 for seniors, $25.95 for students with ID, $19.95 for youth aged 13 to 16 and $12 for children. Children under age six are allowed entry for free, but it is advised that parents keep a very close eye on their children and do not hold babies above the railing unless in a specified baby-carrying apparatus. 

The bridge and accompanying walks are not wheelchair accessible, and therefore, patrons in wheelchairs receive free admission into the park.

The park has its own event planning team to help facilitate your next corporate event or wedding. More information and instructions to contact someone from their team can be found on their website.
