Lions Gate Bridge is a Vancouver architectural marvel that spans the Burrard Inlet. Built in 1937, Lions Gate refers to The Lions, a pair of mountain peaks north of Vancouver where the northbound traffic points. The bridge minted its name when, in 1939, twin concrete lions were installed on both sides of the south entrance.
