No Charcoal Barbeques in Burnaby Parks

The Wildfire Management Branch has banned open burning in the Coastal Fire Region due to drying weather conditions. Due to these fire restrictions, charcoal barbeques in City of Burnaby parks and beaches are prohibited. At this time, only propane gas barbeques are permitted. Please check back for further updates on whether all types of barbequing will be banned if conditions worsen.

No Smoking in Burnaby Parks, Trails & Green Spaces

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.

Change to Picnic Application Date 
Updated: July 15, 2016 at 4:30pm

Availability for Summer 2017 picnics is now limited.

Applications for 2018 will not be accepted before February 1, 2017. 

Please note: 
We no longer accept applications by fax. Applications are accepted by email at parksallotments@burnaby.ca or in person only. If you have any questions, please contact us at the allotment office at 604-294-7222.

Oh, the singular pleasure of a picnic on a spring, summer or fall day! Couples fill their hampers with goodies, grab a favourite blanket and find a private spot under a sheltering tree for the most romantic of rendezvous.

Larger groups of friends and family take a more proactive approach – Reserving Picnic Tables and settling in for a long afternoon or balmy evening of non-stop conversation, board games and satisfying comfort food.

Note: Please be reminded that open fires are prohibited in our parks except with a permit.
