The vantage point near the spillway on the dam wall provided great reflective views of the lake & the gardens would prove to be a popular picnic spot.

Cool to see the dam and the view down from the top, but not a lot of information about the inner workings and the construction of it.

The landscape on your right, beautiful, with The Lions giving it special touch, and on your left the dam... More

A park in Vancouver almost always succeeds expectations because wildlife and scenery are always abundant. It was no different at this park as the trails seclude you from the city and truly relax your soul. The major downfall of the Cleveland dam is the extremely poorly maintained trails. At times I felt slightly lost do to trails jutting into the... More

The dam, and the park that surrounds it, are a magnificent place to spent a day in North Vancouver. The nature is unique and you can have lots of fun walking and hiking around the park for hours. Its a perfect place for a picnic and you can even go with your dog. The picturesque view of the lake and... More

All free. You can picnic, walk the paths right down to the Capilano fish hatchery. Stand and watch the spectacular water display or just stand and stare at the Lions and the lake. Great scenery.

Was a nice random stop on my way up the mountain. Didn't even realize it was there till I was driving past and made a quick turn into the parking lot to see what it was. Has a nice view of the lake with the mountains in the background. Nice if it's a clear day, otherwise it looks like most... More
