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.

Festival Lawn

Deer Lake Festival Lawn

An Extraordinary Outdoor Venue

International artists and local Burnaby talent alike perform here on a handful of weekends each summer. Last year, over 45,000 people attended events on the Festival Lawn.

The Festival Lawn at Deer Lake Park is a wonderful performance venue overlooking scenic Deer Lake in the heart of the city’s arts precinct. This precious civic asset has become a favourite destination where area residents, out-of-towners and tourists celebrate arts and culture in the great outdoors.

Spirit Square

At the heart of every great community lies a site where citizens can gather for special occasions. Burnaby’s Spirit Square is located outside of the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. It's a space where larger groups assemble for public events and private celebrations. Some of the features include a large ornamental tree, lighting and seating ledges. The B.C. Spirit Square program was funded during 2008 in recognition of BC150 – British Columbia’s 150th anniversary as a Crown Colony.
