Thrilling Visitors Since 1889
The original Capilano Suspension Bridge was built in 1889, with hemp rope and cedar planks. Since then, the ropes have been replaced with steel cables strong enough to hold up a fully loaded 747 airliner. Hanging high above the Capilano River, the bridge presents visitors with stunning views in every direction. No matter the time of day or season in which you visit, you’ll have the opportunity to take a walk like millions of others—from local BC residents to rock stars, movie stars and royalty!
