Love Lights @ Capilano Suspension Bridge
For those of you who are not terrified of heights – *sits down* – Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is known for featuring hundreds of thousands of Canyon Lights during the holiday season. And now, until February the 28th, the suspension bridge itself, the Cliffwalk, and the Chandelier will glow with Valentine-hued lighting.
Capilano Suspension Bridge was built in 1889 by Chief August Jack Khatsahlano, Scottish engineer George Grant Mackay, and a team of river-swimming horses. Their bridge was built with cedar logs, planks and hemp rope.

The new bridge finds some formidable friends in Treetops Adventure: seven suspension bridges pitched above 250 year old Douglas firs. All these swinging bridges – along with the canyon, cliffwalk and rainforest – are festooned with lights. Once your adrenaline has been sufficiently exercised, you can check out the Raptors Ridge Birds of Prey, and special Valentine’s goings on, such as live music.
Here’s the Aurora Tunnel at Capilano Suspension Bridge, created by the Victoria-based team of artist-engineers at Limbic Media.
