STAVE LAKE RECREATION AREA

Situated between Mission, to the east, and Maple Ridge, to the west, on the Dewdney Trunk Road. Reach the Dewdney Trunk in Maple Ridge from the Lougheed Highway or in Mission by taking Stave Lake Street north. The Dewdney Trunk passes by the southern end of Stave Lake by making use of the Stave Falls Dam. Open: during daylight hours year round. The Stave River received its name from the lumber taken out of Stave Valley forests and cut to make narrow strips of wood called barrel staves. These were used to make barrels for the transport and storage of salmon by the Hudson's Bay Company. When generating facilities at Stave Falls were constructed between 1908 and 1921, the Stave Falls Dam and Lake were created. In 1910, Western Canada Power Company Limited built a railway to transport men and equipment to the hydroelectric dam.
