Central Park

Winter Safety: No Skating

With the cold winter weather approaching, the City of Burnaby reminds the public that all lakes and ponds in Burnaby are not open for outdoor skating due to unsafe conditions. Burnaby’s lakes are fed by streams which are moving water, creating unstable ice conditions. The winter weather can give a false sense of safety about the ice conditions and rarely creates outdoor skating conditions putting outdoor enthusiasts at risk. Warning signs have been posted at the most popular sites at Deer Lake and Burnaby Lake to inform people about the danger.

Central Park Trail Construction - Fall 2018

Patterson Avenue Multi-Use Trail is the second phase of a multi-phase construction project which will provide a lit perimeter pedestrian and cycling trail around Central Park. Construction of this portion of the trail will start in Fall 2018 and be completed in early Spring 2019. All efforts will be made to minimize inconveniences during the construction period.

For reporting issues related to hazardous conditions in a park, trail or sidewalks bordering a park or city facility, please contact Park Operations by phone (604-294-7206) or email (parks@burnaby.ca).
