Cates Park Paddling Centre
“Whey-Ah-Wichen” meaning Facing the wind – North Vancouver, BC
Cates Park has great importance to our people. It was used as a small village during the spring and summer months to hunt and gather the natural resources such as wild game, berries, flora and fauna. Today the Tsleil-Waututh people use the park for cultural events, ceremonies and to run one part of the Takaya Tours kayak operations.
In March 2007, Takaya Tours entered into a co-management agreement with Deep Cove Canoe & Kayak Centre to run the Cates Park operations.
