BC Parkway & Highland Park Line

The fire danger rating is high at Burnaby parks, beaches, trails and outdoor spaces. Learn more about allowed and restricted activities.

Two urban routes to walk or wheel through central Burnaby

Take a stroll or ride along the BC Parkway, Metro Vancouver’s original recreational bike and pedestrian route. You can venture all the way from the Quay in New Westminster, across Burnaby to False Creek in Vancouver on this 19-kilometre linear park. The parkway offers a separated cycle and pedestrian trail most of the way along this beautifully landscaped park corridor.

Highland Park Line begins at Edmonds St and Kingsway and runs roughly parallel to BC Parkway until it joins the parkway near Buller Ave.

You can stop and enjoy a picnic lunch in one of the many parks along the BC Parkway's car-free corridor. You can also visit the playground in Central Park and the Nick Volkow Skate Park in Bonsor Park. Or, you can take a detour on the Highland Park Line and stop at a park in the Stride Hill neighbourhood.

The BC Parkway and Highland Park Line are very flat and accessible–walk or wheel one way, then hop on the SkyTrain to get back to your starting point.
