Other Capilano Attractions

Downtown Vancouver is on the edge of English Bay

Trading Post

The Trading Post gift shop is housed in a stunning log cabin that was built in 1911 and originally used as a Tea House. Situated on the edge of the scenic canyon, the store features Native art, Canadiana, clothing, souvenirs, and gift items. Just outside, the new cantilevered deck along the canyon wall leads to the Pioneer Garden - considered by some visitors as one of the best views in the province. Two hundred feet long and 300 feet above Capilano River, it offers spectacular views up and down the canyon.

Totem Park

The second most photographed part of the Park (besides the suspension bridge), the colourful Totem Park features more than 25 authentic BC totem poles collected since the 1930's. These handsome poles are maintained in the exact condition they were received and illustrate the popular use of paint by Coast Salish carvers.

The Story Centre

With one of the richest histories of a B.C. landmark, the Story Centre will bring you face-to-face with the pioneers who shaped the history of Capilano Suspension Bridge and Vancouver. Through life-sized photomurals, an audio show, real hands-on historical artifacts, and informative flip-books, you'll see the rich history of the area. The era-costumed guides will tell you all about the secret love stories, the hard work, the native heritage - right up to today. And the guests help add to the story. Once you've visited, you can return and tell your story about visiting the Bridge!
