Beautiful views, great hike down to the salmon hatchery, bbq's and picnic benches-- great family picnic site. Bring a frisbee hike down to the hatchery, stop in at iHenry's Variety Store for ice cream or drinks. This is a great spot to chill.

The Dam is beautiful, the mountains at the back of the scenery look like they are out of a painting.

If you want a marvelous view of The Lions mountains, go to Cleveland Dam. There is a walkway across the top of the dam that can provide a view of the water tumbling, or roaring, over the dam from the water reservoir into the Capilano Canyon. There are trails on the west side of the park, in fact, it is... More

This is a beautiful place and there are often film crews at work here. There's a parking lot if you're driving, and a huge grassland where you can sit and chat and rest. You can walk a bit to see the dam and the Capilano reservoir. There's a hiking trail that connects to the Capilano Salmon Hatchery if you're willing... More

On a recent day trip from Vancouver to Whistler, we stopped at Cleveland Dam. It was a nice stop, even though the dam is being refurbished. There was scaffolding on the dam, but it really didn’t really detract from our visit. It’s a nice picnic stop, with greenery and gardens all around. The views are amazing on a clear day.

We took a nice and short walk to Cleveland Dam from the parking lot. It is currently being refurbished. The Cleveland Dam is a concrete dam at the head of the Capilano River and is part of Capilano River Regional Park. Both the park and the dam are free to visit.

The Cleveland Dam is one of the best sights in North Vancouver and it is 100% FREE. Unlike the suspension bridge and Grouse Mountain which can get pricey just to visit, the Cleveland Dam has free parking right near the paths which lead to the park. No fee to see the sights, the same, if not better views of the... More

The dam is between Capilano and Grouse Mountain, spectacular view. Beautiful gardens and picnic area and easy to park. Can't believe we were up Grouse Mountain yesterday when I looked up at it from this area.
