Shorelines & Lakes

Winter Safety: No Skating

With the cold winter weather approaching, the City of Burnaby reminds the public that all lakes and ponds in Burnaby are not open for outdoor skating due to unsafe conditions. Burnaby’s lakes are fed by streams which are moving water, creating unstable ice conditions. The winter weather can give a false sense of safety about the ice conditions and rarely creates outdoor skating conditions putting outdoor enthusiasts at risk. Warning signs have been posted at the most popular sites at Deer Lake and Burnaby Lake to inform people about the danger.

 Shoreline and Lakes

Beautiful, natural water views can be found throughout the City. In the north, Barnet Marine Park stretching along the ocean shores of the Burrard Inlet. In the south, you can walk along the shoreline trails of the Burnaby Fraser Foreshore Park and see the bustling Fraser River. In central Burnaby, there are two parks, Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park and Deer Lake Park, where you can walk through the trails and get in touch with nature.
