Building a Vancouver Icon: The Lions Gate Bridge

North Vancouver Museum and Archives

Opened in 1938, the elegant Lions Gate Bridge is a Vancouver icon. Celebrated from the beginning for its grace and beauty, it spans the First Narrows of Burrard Inlet, marking the entrance to Vancouver's harbour and connecting the North Shore to Stanley Park and the city centre. Over the decades, traffic increases mightily. Most believe, however, that preserving the historic bridge and its stunning views make up for the inconvenience. Public appreciation of its heritage value peaks in the 1990s, when the province decides to replace the deck rather than demolish the whole structure.
