The Shadbolt Centre for the Arts is located in Deer Lake Park between the Burnaby Art Gallery and the Burnaby Village Museum. It is a lovely open architectural design set in a wonderfully serene location overlooking Deer Lake. We enjoyed the art and exhibits located throughout the building, particularly some of the children's art located in the little Encores Café... More

The art here is nice to look at but you can take in a Theatre and have lunch at Encores too. They have a good selection of Coffee drinks and when the Theatre is on you can get Beer and Wine. Shadboldt Centre has Concerts in the Park and People get married here too.

Dramatics, dance and music are one of the few activities you can get your kids engaged into here. Plus it is a great setting to relax and enjoy the beautiful park while you wait as a parent...!

An amazing building with super design and architecture. The local theatre puts on excellent travelling and local pro/amateur productions. On the weekends this place is being used by all types of social groups and children wanting to learn how to dance or ballet. The theatre experience is wonderful.

Open air, natural ampitheatre. Home to the Burnaby Blues and Roots festival, arts and crafts programs and backs up against Deer Lake and its walking trails.

Very new building and modern look. Took piano lessons here for many years where the teachers are highly qualified. Great outdoor grounds too for walks or outdoor concerts.

The place is plagued by municipal thought instead of free thought. It needs real creativity instead of the canned bureaucratic kind. More like a simplistic recreation centre than an arts centre. The Shadbolts did not know it was being named after them and it was something they did not want [verified before both parties died].
