my parents have some trouble getting around so this was a perfect place where it was only a short walk to beautiful views on well maintained trails. we enjoyed learning about the salmon hatchery as well. Also visit Cleveland Dam which is "next door" and also beautiful.

Called here on our way to Grouse Mountain. Beautiful scenery, shown where a part of Rambo First Blood was filmed. Interesting to learn the life of the salmon, a shame it was the wrong season to see them going up the ladders but we did see some salmon through the glass windows. Amazing fish. Worth a look.

Loved that this was free. Beautiful views and lots of info about the fish. An enjoyable walk from the suspension bridge if the weather is good. Very peaceful and not many people in April :)

We visited the Capilano Salmon hatchery in September 2013, its amazing watching the salmon swim & jump upstream thru the man made waterways its amazing that they know where they have to go to get to there destination. This attraction is self guided & is free well worth taking a look.
