Fire Contained On Burnaby Mountain

Posted 1:50 PM July 5, 2015

The Burnaby Fire Department has contained a small brush fire that broke out this morning on the north slope of Burnaby Mountain. Crews will be maintaining a presence in the area for the duration.

No evacuation orders have been issued. Residents affected by the smoke are to close their windows or may choose to leave the area. Delays and rerouting for transit services are expected due to road closures in the area. Using the hiking trails are not recommended at the moment. Park users are reminded to use care and attention during these extreme fire danger conditions. Please visit the Simon Fraser University Road Report web page for updated information.

Seniors (55+) Centres

55+ 

Spanish explorer Ponce de León may or may not have found a literal fountain of youth, but modern researchers and a generation of active adults have certainly discovered one for themselves. The real secret to longevity and quality of life?

Staying fit and being active.

To build community and promote good health in our aging population, Burnaby is home to four 55+ Centres. Two are located within recreation centres and the other two are stand alone. Social, educational and recreational hubs for citizens of a “certain age” (55 is the new 35, some say!), these centres are great spots to meet new friends, take dance and art classes, karaoke, sample great food during restaurant outings, and generally have a blast with a fascinating and friendly mix of people. As for staying active, see if anyone can keep up while you join in on exercise classes, table tennis, snooker, bridge, hiking, badminton, shuffleboard, Nintendo Wii, Tai Chi or chess.
