  • A good place to visit on a sunny day, there's a nice view of The Lions looking across the lake from Cleveland Park. Easy to get to via car, public transport or an easy hike up from Ambleside park.
  • Breathtaking with multiple parks and a family restrooms​, it's also a confluence for many trekking routs in the Capilano park.
