This is one of my favorite local spots. Not only is the dam in a gorgeous setting amongst the mountains and the start of the famous salmon spawning Capilano River; it connects to many trails that loop around to north and west Vancouver. You can walk from the dam in North Van, all the way to Ambleside Park in West Vancouver if you wish! Trails are easy for all fitness levels and well marked. Follow the signs to the fish hatchery to see the Salmon spawning and watch eagles and Ospreys in the trees near the rivers edge. Wild birds zoom up and down the river and look closely to find small birds dipping into the river to eat snails off the rocks. A wildlife paradise if you stop, listen and look closely. Large old growth tree is visible along one of the trails. Great for joggers. hikers and easy off leash walks with the dog. In the summertime, you can watch hang gilders and para-sailers float off the top of Grouse Mnt. Always an enjoyable place

After our visit to the Salmon Hatchery we walked up the hill and really enjoyed the walk through the forest. Walking up and seeing the wall of the dam is nothing really exiting - however the view from the top was exhilarating!

Stopped at this park during our return trip from Capilano Suspension Bridge. The dam is somewhat small, but you're able to walk across the top of it. There is a lovely lake/reservoir where you could picnic if you like.

A word of caution. While we were at the park, someone attempted to steal our bikes off the bike rack on our car. May have been an isolated case, but be sure to lock up any valuables just to be safe.

If you have never been to a dam before, this is a nice one to start with. The views are as nice as it gets. The funniest part are the maintenance signs. The area pretty good at working their phrases.
