Snow flurries continue this afternoon and more snow is expected over higher terrain through Saturday morning. Read Environment Canada Snowfall Warning »

City crews and equipment are in operation 24-hours to keep streets clear of ice and snow with the focus on priority streets, emergency routes, and bus routes until conditions improve. We appreciate your patience as we work towards removing snow and ice in other areas as conditions and resources allow.

Snow plowing routes are established based on traffic volume, speed, road classification, road terrain, and accessibility by transit and emergency services. View our map of priority snow removal routes. More Snow and Ice Control information »

Please leave extra time to commute, consider taking an alternative route or mode of transportation, stay up to date with weather alerts and Translink service advisories.

Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services

Director's Message

The Burnaby Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department ensures that the community has opportunities for personal growth through leisure-time activities. We are pleased to provide a wide array of opportunities for different ages, interests and skill levels.

You can learn something new, socialize with other like-minded individuals, or get fit and stay fit. Take advantage of the many opportunities we offer at our wonderful, well-equipped recreation and arts facilities along with the many beautiful parks located throughout the city.

The Parks, Recreation and Culture Commission has been delegated the administrative power of Council relating to our department. The Commission is your liaison to our department. They are committed and a dynamic group of volunteers who are happy to work on behalf of the citizens of Burnaby.

As our city evolves and  needs change, everyone involved with the department remains dedicated to ensuring that our parks, facilities, programs and services continue to be a benchmark for the rest of the country. Together, our goal is to create a community that provides you with opportunities for an active and healthy lifestyle. 

Whatever you do and whatever your interests are, we encourage everyone to get out there and be active, Burnaby!
