The Aerial Ferry was constructed in 1939, officially opening to the public on March 15 1940. It operated as an aerial ferry (gondola) that suspended 1200 feet horizontally from the Cascade Mountain Range to the Coast Pacific Mountain Range and crossing the Fraser River in the mighty Fraser Canyon. The Aerial Ferry last operated in 1986 when it was replaced with the Cog Harrington Bridge because of increasing timber volumes and a higher demand for faster transportation. The Aerial ferry has been fully restored and is open for public viewing in the Francis Harrington Park along the Trans-Canada highway in downtown Boston Bar BC. The park is accompanied with a wide range of displays depicting the history of Boston Bar and the Fraser Canyon. Open year round the Aerial Ferry serves as an exciting and educational resting area while you visit the scenic Fraser Canyon.
