This is a decent size city park right on the border of Burnaby and Vancouver. It's family friendly, and there's always something for anyone.: running tracks, exercise obstacle course, benches to relax, duck pond with remote-controlled toy sail boats, tennis court, pitch & putt golf... very nice for a down time or some outdoor exercise!

this is the most user friendly Park in Canada if not the world. Many people go there for picnics. Some remote control their lake going ships by the lakes while other fly helicopters. You can also try your skills in a round of golf with friends. Most facilities are free except golf.

With the unique hilly terrain and a small lake, it is a great location for picnics and morning walkers. There's enough greenery to rest your eyes and in the wee hours of the morning, you can hear birds as they start their day...TIP: Please try not to put earphones to enjoy the sounds of nature every once in a while...

Nice park. Has some decent little trails and quaint little ponds. Decent pitch and put as well. Central Park is a great place to take the kids, go for a walk, or have a bbq.

This is a very nice family park to go watch the squirrels or owls. On nice sunny days, you can sometimes be lucky to spot a couple of turtles on big rocks in middle of the pond, as well as a big toad that looks like it was grown from a scientific experiment. Other days when the pond water is... More

This is a really nice spot for a walk or a bike ride. A couple small lakes on the south side have plenty of birds including sometimes a large Heron. The rest of the park is full of squirrels and crows. The black and gray squirrels are really cute, but be careful of hand feeding them, one bit my girlfriends... More

This lovely park can be accessed from Patterson Sky Train station. It has walking trails on which there is some modern Gym equipment to exercise on. The park also has a very challenging par 3 pitch and putt course. It isn't as picturesque as the Stanley Park course, but it is larger and more difficult to play. It is a... More
