Whey-ah-wichen (Cates Park)

Once a summer village site for the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, Cates Park/ Whey-Ah-Wichen holds a great deal of history. The ancestral name means “Faces the Wind”, and it’s appropriate for the seaside park that features a six-kilometre waterfront trail that winds past sandy beaches and through a mixed forest of Douglas fir and big leaf maple trees.
