Looking Down at the Cleveland Dam

Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Cleveland Dam holds Capilano Lake in North Vancouver, which is used for drinking water and is a part of Capilano River Regional Park. Completed in 1954, it was named for Ernest Cleveland, first chief commissioner of the Greater Vancouver Water District.

Looking Down at the Cleveland Dam

Local photographers love peeking over the edge of the dam to snap vertigo-inducing images, making the Cleveland Dam today’s Vancouver Icons photo feature. Also see my Capilano Lake Vancouver Icon feature for more photos of the park and surrounding area.
