Lions Gate Bridge, Vancouver Reviews

  • Lions Gate Bridge connects Stanley Park with North and West Van. Most of my early years in Vancouver it was referred to as the First Narrows Bridge. Views of the bridge and from the bridge are worth seeing. I will admit my views from the bridge have been while driving across. For many years Vancouver has supported the slowness of traffic on the bridge, so that people in their cars can truly enjoy it. At least that is the story told while enjoying the wonderful old taste of a Guinness Beer once you make it home. While at Stanley Park be sure to enjoy the view of this beautiful bridge, built by the Guinness family - The Lions Gate Bridge.

  • Absolutely gorgeous view! In my opinion, the best views of Vancouver and Stanley Park are to be seen by walking/cycling on this bridge. The traffic is loud. Cars are driving very close by and fast, which is rather scary! But the view more than makes up for this small downside.

  • Nice bridge but very busy. Also the restaurants you will find in Stanley Park will be super expensive and expect to pay for parking. Bike friendly and lots of bike lanes in the park. Also lots of trails and paved pathways. Avoid this bridge between 3pm-6pm unless you must as it will be really slow traffic.

  • Beautiful bridge. Super busy and 24/7 traffic jam! All the crazy people decide to jump from here! So if you are lucky, you will be able to see some brave 1 way jumpers tasting the high of this beautiful brige.

  • My Favorite bridge!! I go over this bridge just about everyday, I love it soon much especially when there is a lot of traffic, the view is so beautiful and packed with memories all around including Stanley Park :-)
