Completed in 1952, the Cleveland Dam lies at the head of the Capilano River and the southern end of Capilano Lake on the North Shore of Greater Vancouver. A viewing area and several trail heads are located next to the dam as well as picnic and public facilities. The dam is not used for hydroelectric purposes but was built for water storage for the Lower Mainland.

One of the Vancouver areas most interesting and entertaining attractions, the Capilano Suspension Bridge has spanned the Capilano River for over a hundred years. The bridge gently rocks and sways as it leads visitors to a beautifully landscaped area with tall trees, fish ponds and hiking trails. It is also possible to watch First Nation carvers at work, and there are many photo opportunities here, especially from the deck that is built along the canyon wall. Restaurants and gift shops are also available.
