Take a deep breath. Exhale...

Delicious, fresh and free, oxygen served up in the great outdoors can be a downright intoxicating experience for those of us who spend too much time planted in office chairs or stretched out on the sofa. The good news: pure and untainted oxygen is available in abundance in Burnaby’s multitude of green spaces.

So whether you’re taking a solo run or a family picnic, walking the dog or riding your bike, taking an eco-sculpture sightseeing trip or knocking around with a soccer ball, there’s no end to the ways to drink deep of nature’s bounty.

Mother Nature’s prescription for health and well-being? Breathe easy. Exercise, sweat and relax in equal measure. And, above all, enjoy being green in Burnaby.
