The provincial park is a day use park situated at the foot of Mount Cheam and on the banks of Bridal Creek. The park is surrounded by mountains, hidden in a lush valley of forests consisting of western hemlock, red cedar and red alder and maple trees.
The 32 hectare Bridal Veil Falls Provincial Park is a day use picnic park. There are picnic tables, sitting benches, information signs, a parking lot and pit toilets in the park.
From the parking lot a short loop walking trail leads to a viewing deck located at the foot of Bridal Viel Falls. The falls are one of the largest falls in British Columbia with an elevation drop of over 60 metres into Bridal Creek.
The site of the falls and the parkland area surrounding the falls was once the site of a 1700s First Nation village named Popkum. Popkum comes from the First Nation word Pópkw'em meaning "puff ball" which is an aboriginal word for a plant which grows in the region.
