No Smoking in Parks, Trails & Green Spaces | No Charcoal Barbeques in Parks

Due to the dry weather and heat that could result in fire hazards, the City of Burnaby advises all park users that there is NO SMOKING permitted in the Burnaby parks, trails and green spaces.

Charcoal barbeques in City of Burnaby parks and beaches are prohibited. At this time, only propane gas barbeques are permitted. Please check the city’s website for updates on whether all types of barbequing will be banned if conditions worsen.

Festivals Burnaby Grant Program

Organizations applying for grants to support events and festivals should apply through the Festivals Burnaby Grant Program. This program supports neighbourhood events, as well as small scale and large scale festivals and special events. Application forms are submitted to the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department and are then reviewed by the Executive Committee of Council after which they are reviewed by Council.

Executive Committee of Council

Organizations that are applying for grants that fall outside of the Festivals Burnaby Grant Program (for example, Burnaby residents attending national and international athletic competitions or community groups providing human services to our community) should apply to the Executive Committee of Council.
