Lions Gate Bridge, Vancouver

4.2
Spanning the Burrard Inlet, Lions Gate Bridge represents one of the longest bridges in Canada and is an iconic symbol of the city. Covering total length of 1,823 m (5,890 ft), the bridge connects the main downtown area to North and West Vancouver. The suspension bridge is named after two mountain peaks to the north in the North Shore Mountains referred to as “The Lions.” To drive home the point, a pair of concrete lions sit on the south approach to the bridge. Walk or cycle over the bridge, which offers both mountain and urban views.

  • Funnily enough and rather unexpectedly we used this bridge far more often than we thought we ever would and even when the traffic was heavy it never really clogged up the journey. Great looking bridge...  more »
  • Beautiful suspension bridge that connects Vancouver with the North Shore. We didn't cross the bridge but had a great view from Stanley Park.  more »
  • Especially in the morning and evening, when soft light enchants Vancouver, a walk across the Lions Gate worth bridge. Wonderful views to sweeten the Canal via the architectural masterpiece that connects West Vancouver to the Stanley Park. A nice way to get RV Park in the downtown of the Capilano.

  • You can find gourmet stuff and some very specific items you may not find in local stores. However, the prices are very touristic and sometime are too much. you can find wide range of delicate food items such as Italian pastas or Italian sausages. Also, you can find artistic and creative work their but at touristic prices. Also, you can visit the brooms factory which offers some very nice collection at as high as 400 Canadian dollar.
  • The Lions Gate Bridge is linking the Stanley Park In Vancouver to the North part of Vancouver. It really looks lovely le the Golden Gate in SAN Francisco! It can be jammed at rush hour in the morning or evening but it is very convenient nevertheless
  • If you are visiting Stanley Park, it's worth taking some time to walk across the bridge. It's a beautiful bridge with gorgeous views. However avoid driving across during rush hour traffic. Lots of congestion. Would not recommend that unless you have no other option.
  • With amount of traffic on it, it’s more useful as an artistic landmark than a bridge. Nevertheless I love how it looks. Ride your bike on it and views won’t disappoint you.
  • Best views in Vancouver BC. Walk the bridge to the middle and you won't be disappointed in the long hike up.
