This is the equivalent of the Golden Gate San Francisco bridge. It connects Stanley Park with North Vancouver. The view of the both North Vancouver and the city skyline from the bridge is incredible. You can walk across the bridge but it is very long.

A fantastic bridge built by the Guinness family. Good photo opportunities from Stanley Park both under and above the bridge. Pass under it whilst walking/cycling around Stanley Park.

What a commute?! Took a ride across Lions Gate and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Viewed from Stanley Park and and was struck by this engineering feat. Worth the taxi fair just to experience what a lot of commuting-Couvians do each day. Recommended.

This provides an awesome backdrop of the bay and North Vancouver. If you go to Stanley Park they have a great overlook right beside it.

I cant say what it is like to drive over since I dont drive myself although I've been driven over it. But its view is spectacular of both the mountains and the sea. One reaches it from Stanley Park which is also a scenic experience....More

This bridge gets you thru the middle of beautiful Stanley Park via highway 99 and or 1A. A suspension bridge with a pedestrian walkway on both sides used by bike riders as well.

We used the Lions Gate Bridge near Stanley Park twice during our recent stay. It provided fantastic views of Vancouver city as you crossed over the water to other venues. It is of a lovely design and well maintained.

We did not have an opportunity to walk across this bridge. I wish now that we had done so. The bridge opened in 1938 and the name 'Lion's' refers to the pair of mountains named The Lions north of Vancouver. A pair of cast concrete...More

Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up
close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy
expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views,
beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical
getaway spot for friends and families, especially as
it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its
best equestrian outlets.
