Lions Gate Bridge - Review
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.

Lions Gate Bridge, Vancouver Reviews
The Lions Gate Bridge is one the most famous landmarks in Vancouver and starts at the edge of Stanley Park to meet in North Vancouver. Di you know... "Amazingly the shipping lane through Burrard Inlet only closed for one single hour during the entire construction of the bridge, at 4.50am on May 2, 1938. On Nov 12, 1938 the Lions Gate bridge opened and the rest, as they say, is history.
Weird to rate a bridge, I know, but it's worth reviewing. This bridge connecting central and North Vancouver is a beautiful trek for driver, biker, and pedestrians alike. At its brightest it gives you a gorgeous view of Vancouver and the mountains! Be warned, this bridge has a rotating middle lane! Almost like a suicide lane, this middle lane allows cars both directions BUT is controlled by easy to read signs. This allows Northbound and Southbound lanes to alternate between one and two available lanes. This beautiful idea can seem frightening to newcomers but it is glorious for traffic. (See my photo with the three stop lights) Within an hour of driving over this bridge twice (we got lost) the middle lane had changed. More creative bridges like this are needed!
If you like to walk it takes like one hour walking from there to Stanley park (or the next bus stop), I recommend to use the bike instead, I think it's a good experience too... and faster 😂
Beautiful bridge that stretches from Stanley Park to West Vancouver. Built privately by the Guinness family so they could develop West Vancouver under the British Properties name. It's is possible to walk or ride a bike across and take some amazing pictures of ship transiting under it or seaplanes flying over it.
Beautiful bridge and nice views. The traffic lights are efficient here and adjust priority for more lanes to improve traffic flow.
