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

I come here almost every week. One of the best hidden parks in Burnaby. Great for biking, gentle trails around and plenty of activities to do. You can choose to go for miniature golf, outdoor pool, playgrounds for the kids, picnics with family and a stadium around the corner for special events. My only gripe is that this place isn't...

Central park has a great par three Pitch & Putt located in the South East corner. It seems to be a little hidden gem as it is hard to find on the Burnaby info sites. Anyway, if you are looking for a perfect way to spend a quiet peaceful day, this is the place. Just like the rest of the... More

Located just steps from busy intersections between Vancouver and Burnaby, Central Park is truly an urban oasis. Once you enter into the park, the traffic noises are quickly replaced by the noises of little children playing, and ducks and other birds quacking and chirping. Its trails are very forgiving for people who just want to stay in shape rather than... More
