Shorelines and lakes
Situated between Burrard Inlet and the Fraser River, and home to the region’s 2 largest lakes, Burnaby has 4 major waterside parks open all year round.
Burrard Inlet’s spectacular views, combined with Burnaby’s rich pioneering history, make this shoreline park perfect for strolling along the waterfront, kayaking on the inlet or casting a line.
Walk your dog, try outdoor fitness circuit training or wander along the accessible paths. This riverside park also has a large picnic area next to the playground and lookout piers to view the working river.
Whether you take to the trails or the water, this park is a natural paradise. It's also at the center of our arts and culture scene—especially during the busy summer festival season.
Home to bald eagles, kingfishers, ospreys and more, Burnaby Lake is a must-visit for birdwatchers. It also offers calm waters for canoeing, kayaking and rowing.
