Trail Closures and Detours - Taylor Park

Updated: April 16, 2015

From April 20 to May 1, work on a rail change will be undertaken by PNR Railworks in Taylor Park. During this time, temporary trail closures will occur throughout the park, including the pedestrian overpass, the trail through the park between Mission Avenue and BC Parkway, and the BC Parkway section between the two access points to the park. Detours will be place in the various work locations. Cyclists are advised to slow down and watch for signage in the park. Map overview of closure areas.

Unlike most parcels of prime real estate, parks are public property –a legacy for this generation and those to come. And the public – namely you, the citizens of Burnaby and anyone else visiting our beautiful city – are welcome to take full advantage of our generous, expansive network of green spaces.

Under a big-sky canopy, individuals, couples, friends and family groups enjoy the great outdoors year-round. And there are literally dozens of ways to take in the fresh air: strolling, hiking, cycling, jogging, sailing, canoeing, swimming, fishing, bird-watching and picnicking. Plus no shortage of opportunities for hanging out, relaxing, meditating or simply doing nothing but breathing.

Taking a necessary break from our busy lives, we begin to vibrate at nature’s calm frequency when setting the clock to park time. Our 158 parks range from pocket-sized community spots to vast landscapes that feature a mix of rolling grasslands, dense forest, secret ravines and waterfront beaches and trails. The meandering trails of Deer Lake Park provide endless opportunities for exploration. Central Park, meanwhile, also offers an array of sports and recreation facilities for all ages. You'll fall head-over-sneakers in love with our parks!
