Cool spot to visit

The view is amazing - the mountains, the park, the dam which you can walk across and take pictures from the middle. Park is well-maintained and clean.

Amazing view from Cleveland Dam. And most of all ... it is free! As you walk up from the parking area, you get mesmerized immediately by the natural beauty of British Columbia! Reminds me of the Sound of Music. Go visit and you will understand what I mean. Enjoy the view!

While hordes of tourists descend upon the very popular Capilano suspension bridge , locals in the know head over to the lesser known but equally as idyllic Cleveland Dam. In addition to trails and grassy areas for relaxing, it offers gorgeous views of the canyon, Grouse Mountain and the reservoir. It has all the usual amenities such as free parking,... More

Capilano is not only about a hanging bridge, treetops and cliff walk. It's a river and the best way to appreciate it - visit the Capilano River Regional Park near Cleveland Dam. It's an ordinary dam that holds back water from the lake from the other side of the bridge. Go that other side and see an amazing view of... More

Whether rain or shine, the hiking trails surrounding the dam are a beautiful escape from the bustle of city life. It's an enjoyable walk, and the trails are not particularly difficult. There are off leash trails for furry companions, but be warned that the garbage cans to dispose of dog waste are only at the trail entrance. There have been... More

First of all lots of free parking! Also very close to every thing so u don't have to drive far to get there! Half of it it's paved! The only thing I didn't like was some dogs not being on leash even though there were many signs saying "dogs must be on leash"

An easy walk, and an incredible view. Great for all ages. You won't believe it until you see it. The water crashes over the dam and hits below. It is mesmerizing to watch. We always leave feeling peaceful and blessed to live in this gorgeous place. The surrounding view is all mountain, forest, clear water & nature.

Cleveland Dam, located in Capilano River Regional Park, has some of the most gorgeous backdrop imaginable. For those who want to lazily grab some sun on the lawn, or do a photo shoot, they can just go up on the hill and take some of the best shots available. For those who want a bit more adventure, you can start... More
