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 Burnaby parks, trail systems and green spaces. "No Smoking" signs are being posted in parks and trails throughout the City. The ban will remain in effect until further notice.

Trailblazing is a breeze in Burnaby. With over 230 kilometres of paths and trails, the city offers a diverse mix of adventures that range from easy strolls and moderate hikes to marathon outings. Why add some trail mix to your lifestyle diet? Health and exercise, of course, but perhaps more important is the fact that our trails offer urban dwellers a rare chance to absorb nature in the raw – fresh air, changing weather patterns, birds, plants, trees, wildlife.

Many of our trails are designed for multi-use purposes. Some are designated for cycles. Others allow off-leash dogs. Investigate the many and varied options by clicking on the links below. And if you like to walk or jog in circles, be sure to check out the outdoor tracks at Burnaby Central Secondary School, Cariboo Hill Secondary School, Byrne Creek Secondary School and at Confederation and Kensington Parks. These well-maintained facilities allow one to stay in shape in a thoroughly safe environment.
