A world-class sports facility in our own backyard

This multi-purpose stadium is located in the northwest corner of Central Park. It's one of BC's premier sports and athletic facilities for provincial, national and international league soccer, rugby, football and track and field events. But there's action at the local level too–watch for fun family activities throughout the year. Plus, every year Burnaby hosts Canada Day celebrations that include concerts, fireworks and festival fun. Visitor information and hours
