Winter Safety: No Skating or Tobogganing

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.

In addition, the public is encouraged not to toboggan on Burnaby Mountain. The steep slopes produce conditions for people to pick up high speeds and obstacles such as rocks and trees create unsafe conditions for tobogganing and sledding on Burnaby Mountain.

In south Burnaby if you're looking for a place for a walk along the water, be sure to check out the Burnaby Fraser Foreshore Park. Take the wheel aboard the riverside pirate ship in the playground and allow your imagination to flow freely with the passing boats on this busy working waterway. Here you can have a picnic along the shoreline, challenge friends and family to your favourite leisure activity on the open grassy area.
