At the head of Capilano river soars the majestic Cleveland Dam, holding back the 271 ha (670 mi) Capilano lake. Providing the drinking water for much of the Great Vancouver region, the 91.4 m (300 ft) impressive spillway was built in 1954 and sits in the natural beauty of the surrounding regional park. Ramble your way along easy going trails and hikes leading to spectacular views of the dam.
