Originally built in 1889, Capilano Suspension Bridge stretches 450 feet (137m) across and 230 feet (70m) above Capilano River. Since then much has been added to the twenty-seven acre park. CLIFFWALK is the park’s newest attraction – a cantilevered walkway clinging to the granite cliff high above Capilano Canyon. Treetops Adventure, seven suspension bridges through the evergreens taking you up to 100 feet (30m) above the forest floor, offers a unique squirrel’s eye perspective of the forest. Guided nature tours, the Kids’ Rainforest Explorer program and the Living Forest exhibit enhance this unique rainforest encounter. Enjoy seasonal musical entertainment and First Nations culture. Take photos at the Totem Park and with the Capilano Tramps.

Your chance to see Richmond’s fishing industry up-close and personal. Along the pier next to Steveston Landing is Fisherman’s Wharf, where incredible river views give way to the village’s famed commercial fishing fleet—the largest in Canada. The catch of the day is unloaded here for sale, and you can buy shrimp, Dungeness crab, sea urchin, and spot prawns from the very anglers who caught them. While the public fish sales float is always open, fishing vessels keep their own hours and come and go as they please, so you never know what will be on offer! Check out the Steveston Harbour Authority’s website to learn more.
