The City of Burnaby advises all park users that there is no smoking permitted in Burnaby parks, trails and green spaces. "No Smoking" signs are posted throughout the City.
Phase 3 - Central Park Perimeter Trail now open
Walkers, cyclists, joggers and people who use wheelchairs can now add the third leg of the Central Park Perimeter Trail to their route.
Completed in the spring of 2021, this new section runs along Imperial St, from Willingdon Ave to Boundary Rd. It's 0.78 kilometres long and well-lit at night.
The trail’s first section, along Boundary Rd from 45th Ave to Imperial St, was built in 2017. Phase 2 followed in 2019 with a 0.82 kilometre long, well-lit pathway running along Patterson Ave from Imperial St to the Patterson SkyTrain Station.
Construction underway on the fourth and final section
The final northwest section will connect the existing trail at 45th Avenue and Boundary Road to the BC Parkway, just north of the Central Park children’s playground. This will complete the 3.5-kilometre loop that features a rubberized surface and bright lighting at night. The fourth and final section will be opening Spring 2023.
