Originally called Faces of the wind, or Whey-Ah-Whichen in the local ancient language, Cates Park is a great place to visit in the district of North Vancouver. Cates Park consists of a couple of beaches, a boat launch, a wharf, a park with picnic facilities, a forest with many walking trails, and many native artifacts such as totem poles and a tribal canoe. Cates Park was named as such after Charles Cates, the founder of the Cates boat tugging company which operates in the Vancouver harbour area. Cates Park lies very close to the Tsleil-Waututh Reserve and one can feel the history of the area. Cates Park photos are interesting to see because of the diverse activities one can do within Cates Park.
