Snow and Ice Removal Continues

Posted January 16, 2017

City crews and equipment will be working this week to:

  • Clear catch basins in anticipation for this week’s thawing and rainfall events
  • Clear wheelchair ramps and bus stops of compacted snow and ice
  • Sweep and clear main roadways and priority routes of sand abrasives

Remove snow from catch basins and storm drains. Keeping catch basins and storm drains on your street clear of snow helps prevent flooding when snow melts. Report problems to our 24-hour service line at 604-294-7200.

Locate catch basins using the Burnaby Map:

  1. Select Layers button
  2. Expand Engineering Operations option > Infrastructure
  3. Select Storm > Catchbasin > Zoom into your street

Motorists are advised to be prepared for changing road conditions. Attention should be paid to water pooling around roadways due to forecasted rainfall this week.

Hazardous conditions, downed trees, potholes, and localized flooding can be reported to our 24-hour Emergency Dispatch at 604-294-7200. Non-emergency requests can be reported to 604-294-7460. We appreciate your patience as we work towards removing snow and ice in as many areas as possible. View Snow and Ice Control Information and Our Role as a City.

Trails on Burnaby Mountain

Burnaby Mountain Park

Detailed Trail Map of Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area

Step outside and take a deep breath of fresh air. In a matter of minutes, you can be in a mountain environment rich in natural beauty. Set off on a vigorous hike, a leisurely stroll or a heart-pumping bike ride. A network of 26 multi-use trails covering 28 kilometres criss-crosses the 576 hectares within the Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area.

This is an important mountain ecosystem of slopes forested in deciduous and coniferous trees. Blacktail deer, coyotes, bald eagles and a wide variety of smaller animals all make their homes in this lush and rugged terrain. Black bears and cougars are occasional visitors, seeking out the numerous creeks and streams along the trails. The grade climbs from about 25 metres above sea level to the summit of Burnaby Mountain at 366 metres.

As you reach the top, pause for a breath and consider how the preservation of this environment ensures that generations to come will enjoy and appreciate our natural heritage.

Trail Etiquette

Our trails are shared and accessed by a variety of users at the same time - from beginner to advanced hikers and cyclists. As well, one trail is provided for equestrian users. Please be courteous to all and remember that pedestrians have right-of-way. 

Some of the trails travel over very steep terrain. It is extremely important to stay on the trails at all times.
