On the weekend, I visited the Greenheart TreeWalk out at the UBC Botanical Garden. It’s a much smaller scale version of the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, without the canyon, but with fewer crowds. Even though I went on the weekend, I wasn’t faced with wall to wall tourists.

It’s about half the price of the Cap bridge but you still get to walk amongst the tree tops, from tree to tree like you’re an Ewok. The price of admission also gets you access to the botanical garden which is pretty interesting as well. The tree walk was the main attraction for me though. The suspended walkways have a lot of give up and down and sideways, which adds to the excitement of being dangerously high in the air.

It’s a nice way to spend an hour or two if you’re out by UBC. I’d recommend going on a non-rainy afternoon if possible.
