Burnaby's beautiful parks welcome you

We're a city of ocean shores, rivers, mountains, lakes, wilderness areas and neighbourhood greenspaces–visit our parks and enjoy all we have to offer. We have over 150 great parks across Burnaby to share with you. Big and small, they surround us with nature, giving us a place to relax, visit and play outdoors–without ever leaving the city.   

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.


Explore the outdoors at our popular parks–enjoy nature at every turn, check out our super attractions and pick your spot for fabulous views.
