All that refreshing Vancouver drinking water you’re enjoying comes from Capilano Lake and the Cleveland Dam plays a big role, holding back the 271-hectare (670-acre) man-made lake reservoir. With a surging 91-metre (300-foot) spillway and the peaks of the Lions and the North Shore Mountains as a backdrop, this is an unexpectedly beautiful way to see a dam in action. Be sure to take in a forest walk in beautiful Capilano River Regional Park.
