  • We rented a car for the weekend, went to Stanley park, Deep Cove and this was our last stop for the day. We went down the steps to the twin water falls and at the end you go on the suspension bridge. ...  more »
  • Set in a more natural setting than the Capilano park. It is possible to get to the park using public transport and free to enter - use ferry across harbour for great waterfront views then but can take...  more »
  • But when you're driving, you have to be aware of the target, we missed the intersection and turned back, and it's not a good indicator. It's also a good place to rearrange the parking lot, so it's better to watch the residents live here.

  • Lovely park. We'll signed walking trails. Fairly simple walks so not much prep or planning really needed. Even on a Tuesday, the trails were fairly busy. I hardly had more than 4-5 minutes alone. Still, very pretty and worth the trip. Bus transportation from Vancouver is easy.
  • Really enjoyed this visit. Free to get in and enjoy nature. Beautiful sights and lots of hiking trails for people with different time constraints. Gift shop had a nice display for younger folks and very reasonable prices. Best to arrive before 10am to ensure good parking.
  • What a great park! This was a huge hidden gem to me as I just discovered this place recently. It's a bit dangerous as I've seen people get hurt and get retrieved by 911 services. There's also those foolish people jumping off cliffs. Dumb stuff aside. It really is a beautiful haven. The popular spot is the trickling stream with the edged rocks. People love to picnic here, take pictures, or even just sit here and enjoy the view. There's also a pretty big suspension bridge here the second most well-known suspension bridge besides capilano itself. In the summer, lots of summer day camps come here on field trips. There's also a restaurant with a washroom here. The only thing I don't like is the parking. There's not a lot and sometimes parking in the residential area is the only way to get in. It's far, but coming here is definitely worth the trouble!
  • This park has nice short little walks/hikes. Great for kids! Busy during the summer months as it is a busy tourist destination and there can be a line up to get across the suspension bridge. Many of the trails connect with other great hikes to extend the adventure!
  • An absolutely beautiful park with a suspension bridge, waterfalls, swimming holes and great hiking trails! It is a very popular spot so I would advise going early and avoid the weekends if possible (the bridge is a lot more fun when their are fewer people on it). There is also a cafe with decent food and public washrooms right next to the parking lot.
