The Capliano Suspension Bridge park which displays The Canyon Lights from mid November to the end of January each year, is in the city of Vancouver British Columbia. In 1888, George Grant Mackay, a Scottish civil engineer and land developer, arrived in the young city of Vancouver in Canada. Mackay purchased 6,000 acres of dense forest on either side of Capilano River and built a cabin on the very edge of the canyon wall. In 1889 he suspended a footbridge made of hemp rope and cedar planks across the canyon . In 1903 the hemp rope supports were replaced with steel cables to make the bridge definately much safer and long lasting for decades to come. Over the decades ,many improvements have taken place to bring the bridge to where it is today. As mentioned earlier throughout winter, you can come and re-capture the feeling of wonder and excitement of the holiday season and be amazed by the hundreds of thousands of lights throughout the park. The suspension bridge, Treetops Adventure, Cliffwalk, the rainforest and canyon are transformed into a world of festive lights and visual enchantment.
For the 2017 /2018 season the 30-ton Douglas firs of Treetops Adventure receive star treatment. Treetops Adventure is a series of seven suspension bridges attached to eight 250 years old Douglas-firs with viewing platforms, reaching up to 110 feet above the forest floor. These magnificent Douglas firs were lit above and below the collars, making these trees the eight tallest Christmas trees in the world!
Brent and Elsa have begun to make this an annual pre Christmas family outing for them and look forward to it each year. It is simply amazing to see with your own eyes so if in Vancouver around Christmas ,make sure you visit the Capliano Suspension Bridge.
