Built in the 1930’s. the Lions Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge that runs over the Burrard Inlet with its name referring to ‘The Lions’- the mountain peaks located to the North of Vancouver. The bridge covers a length of 1,823 meters, standing tall at a staggering height of 364 feet from the foot of the bridge to the top of the tower.
The view of the bridge during the sunset is quiet stunning while the view of the Vancouver skyline from the bridge itself, is like no other.

I had no idea I could review this bridge. For commuting I give it 1-star. It is the bane of my existence for crossing. I always end up in the single lane traffic. Always. But it's beautiful and if you walk it or check out the viewpoint or overpass there are some amazing views or photos to be taken. Do it for the gram.
Great little stopping point for some pretty pictures. We went two days in a row. It is a great place to watch the sun rise and set.
yes its most of the time a busy place if you are crossing and driving a car but for a walk from North Vancouver all the way to Stanley Park and to the view point right at the end of the bridge ( downtown side ) its the best romantic beautiful place with a fantastic view of downtown, north shore, ocean, lots of vessels and all the magical beauty of Vancouver all together don't forget to ride a bike over here to Stanley Park as well and be aware it will be a bit uphill, so get ready for it
Iconic bridge of Vancouver. You need 1.5 hour to walk over this bridge. Pay attention for the details how the bridge was built back to the old days! It's quite amazing! The view from the bridge is breathtaking. Each side is offers you a different experience. One side with the skyline and the other with North Van and West Van beaches and during clear days you can spot the Vancouver Island in the distance. The ship traffic is very busy, so most likely you'll see some big tankers or big cruise ships crossing under the bridge. The traffic is heavy on the bridge therefor the noise is very loud. Pay attention to the bicycles, they can be aggressive towards the pedestrians.
Really lovely views from the bridge. If you are walking it make sure to choose the side you want to see. The bridge gets a bit of traffic so expect some fumes.
