This is Vancouver's oldest and most famous attraction which draws over 800,000 visitors each year. The park is home to the world's greatest suspension footbridge, which was original built in 1889. Today's bridge is the fourth bridge at this location. It spans 450 feet across and is 230 feet above the Capilano River. Located on the other side of the bridge is a West Coast rain forest. The forest is a popular attraction for visitors and offers trails that pass by trout ponds and old growth evergreens. The park's trails are located in the rain forest and some of the trails offer interactive displays that explain the local flora and fauna. Near the main entrance you can visit the Totem Park with over 25 authentic totem poles from the 1930s. Then stop by the Big House which features First Nations carvers who explain and demonstrate their skills, and techniques. Walk through the Story Centre, where you can pose with the "tramps", view artifacts, antiques and hear "voices from the past". While there at the park, dine at the outdoor tables at either the Bridge House Restaurant or the Canyon Cafe and Logger's Grill. Dogs on leash are allowed everywhere except in the Trading Post Gift Shop and inside the restaurants. Tour greeters and guides are available at the park for complimentary history and nature tours from May to October. The bridge and park are open daily except for Christmas Day. Summer hours are 8:30am until dusk and winter hours are 9am to 5pm. This park is located just 10 minutes from downtown Vancouver. To get there, go through Stanley Park, over the Lions Gate Bridge and go north 1 mile on Capilano Road. From the Trans-Canada Highway, take the Capilano road exit and go north for a half a mile.
