Take advantage of nature at two of CSL’s favourite spots in Vancouver
Escape the city to the peace and serenity of recreated 5th Century Ming Dynasty China. The gardens were built in 1985-86 by 52 master craftsmen from China, using techniques that were used during the Ming dynasty (ie. halls and walkways were constructed with precise joinery and without the use of nails, screws or glue). The design of the garden are meant to encapsulate the harmony of four elements where each corner of the garden reveals another magical landscape.
CAPILANO SUSPENSION BRIDGE PARK
Nestled among pine trees, the 140 – metre long and 70 metre high Capilano suspension bridge – swaying with the weight of dozens of tourists is the main attraction of this activity compound. There are also several mini-attractions included in admission: Treetops Adventure (a labyrinth of pathways and bridges in the treetops), history from BC’s First Nations at Kia’palano (including gorgeous totem poles), and the heart pumping cliff walk (besides the fear factor, the panoramic views of nature are spectacular).
