About Robert Burnaby Park
Located just south of Burnaby Lake, Robert Burnaby Park is the perfect destination for outdoor activities. Go for a walk or a jog on winding trails that follow the park's many creeks or visit the upper slope to swim, play tennis, picnic and more.
Welcome to one of Burnaby's most popular outdoor pools. Located in the southeast area of the park it's ideal for public swims, lessons or simply relaxing on the spacious pool deck. And there's lots of free parking too.
A network of easy to medium walking trails cover Robert Burnaby Park's forested creek ravine areas. They were built during the Great Depression of the 1930s.
This open area in the southeast corner of the park is close to the tennis courts. Picnic tables are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The baseball field is located off 4th St on the west side of the park.
Players throw a disk at the pin instead of hitting a golf ball on a this 9-hole course– like golf, the lowest score wins. The entrance is off Hill St.
3 tennis and pickleball courts are located north of the picnic/playground area.
Your dog will enjoy exploring this long off-leash area that extends along the BC Hydro right of way to a large open area in the north central area of the park.
