Picnics

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 and 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.

For small casual groups, picnic areas are located in many of Burnaby’s scenic parks and are available on a first-come basis. No prior booking or allotment is required.
