Lions Gate Bridge, Vancouver Reviews
If you're not very fit, this will be a good workout. However, while the span is considerably large, it is well worth it for the views out over the mountains and the greater Vancouver area. The bridge has been made famous after a number of movies, not least Final Destination (which like many movies, was filmed almost entirely in Vancouver).
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.
Beautiful view from this bridge. Terrible traffic at rush hour regardless of the direction you are going. There are only three lanes, two of which are open in the direction with the most traffic making travelling opposite rush hour just as time consuming. Not accessible from the Stanley park scenic drive during rush hour.
It's a beautiful bridge. You can cross it by car/bus or walk. If you are walking, It has an spectacular view of the city and I recommend it to see the sunset.
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.
