Shorelines & Lakes
Fraser Foreshore Park
As part of the 2012-2014 Flood Protection Works Program, the City of Burnaby will be constructing flood protection works at various locations along the Fraser Foreshore, from the eastern City boundary adjacent to the City of New Westminster, to Boundary Road adjacent to the City of Vancouver (note that not all sections shown on the map are included in the 2012-2014 program). In 2012, a new dyke is being constructed along Fraser Park Drive (referred to as Reach 6), from Tillicum Street to the existing CN Rail bridge. The new Reach 6 dyke will also provide a trail connecting the existing trails within the existing Fraser Foreshore Park to the trailhead at the end of Fraser Park Drive.
Access to the trailhead at the end of Fraser Park Drive will be closed to the public until completion of the Reach 6 project, which is planned for early December. For more information, please contact Burnaby Engineering at 604-294-7460.
Beautiful, natural water views can be found throughout the City. In the north, Barnet Marine Park stretching along the ocean shores of the Burrard Inlet. In the south, you can walk along the shoreline trails of the Burnaby Fraser Foreshore Park and see the bustling Fraser River. In central Burnaby, there are two parks, Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park and Deer Lake Park, where you can walk through the trails and get in touch with nature.
