Bordered by the towering green giant that is the Lions Gate Bridge and the meandering Capilano River that flows from the top of Capilano Mountain (near Furry Creek) into the Burrard Inlet, the cozy neighbourhood of Capilano is known for its arborous adventure spots. The Upper Capilano area, meanwhile, is known for its windy tree-lined roads and quiet rural feel.
