The area is served by Montroyal Elementary, and the popular Handsworth Senior Secondary School. The closest public library is in Edgemont Village.
The community is at the foot of the Grouse Mountain Skyride with the infamous "Grouse Grind" hiking trail up the mountain (note: there are bear and wolf warnings at the bottom of the trail) There is a Para-Sailing field near Grouse Woods. To the west is beautiful Capilano Lake, with an impressive park adjacent to Cleveland Dam.
Cleveland Park's terrain is gently sloped with southern exposure, and most homes are 2000 square feet ranch homes and bungalows, on 70' x 110' lots. Grouse Woods homes are impressive townhomes and "zero-lotline" homes on small lots.
Many are built post & beam in the West Coast style, sometimes with open floor plans and expanses of glass. Some homes have been replaced by newer homes between 3,500 sf and 5,000 sf.
