Built in 1954, the Cleveland Dam was constructed for a number of important reasons. Unlike many other dams though, this one is not used for hydroelectricity. Instead, the original purpose of the dam was to hold back water entering into Burrard Inlet, which used to come in at a heavy pace carrying with it a hearty amount of silt and rocks, as well as a heavy current. Cleveland Dam was also constructed to protect a means of fresh drinking water for the lower mainland of Vancouver. In fact, the lake above Cleveland Dam provides the lower mainland with a whopping 40% of its fresh drinking water.

These days, Cleveland Dam makes up a part of North Vancouver that has quickly become a popular tourism destination and in the area around the dam, there are a number of parks and hiking paths. The dam itself sits in a protected park called Capilano River Regional Park, which also encompasses Capilano Lake, the body of water that the 300-foot spillway of the dam encloses. In the area, visitors can also find attractions such as the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Lynn Canyon Park, and Grouse Mountain.

Nestled at the mountains’ base, the North Shore is a treat and a not-to-be-missed day tour. Upon leaving downtown Vancouver, you will travel over Lions Gate Bridge, and land on the North Shore, continuing on to The Shipyards District. Home to the Lonsdale Quay Market, The Polygon Gallery, and Burrard Pier, this area is situated along North Vancouver’s vibrant waterfront offering unobstructed views of Vancouver’s stunning skyline to the south and the soaring North Shore mountains to the north. Next, continue your journey up the mountain to Cleveland Dam, a 91-metre (100 yard) high concrete dam at the head of the Capilano River providing the fresh drinking water for the region. Continue on your journey and arrive at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park to explore this wonderland in nature. Take the heart-quickening walk across this iconic bridge high above the canyon floor and stroll along elevated boardwalks through the temperate West Coast rainforest. Finally, end your tour where it began.
