There's tennis courts, a golf course, a couple ponds, a playground, a pool, and some other ammenities. Throughout the park there's some things... More

What a great park right at the boundary of Vancouver and Burnaby. This park has everything from an outdoor pool, children's playground, a sand pit, two ponds, BBQ areas, to a mini golf (for 8 yrs old & up). I spent the whole afternoon here with my three young children and they didn't want to leave! Recommend to bring snacks... More

This park is a great place to go Cora walk or a run. Lots of birds, mostly ducks but it is amazing. Nice place to just sit and relax and maybe forget you're in the city. A very nice well forested lark.

across from the Telus Boot building this park has a large track and field oval with tons of seating, great walking paths around and through wooded forest. I love the open to the public outdoor pool in the summer - go in the week and no-one expect a few oldies are quietly swimming.

Not only is this a great location for a walk, the park contains quite a few geocaches so you can add to your find list! The park has many things to do besides walking. Everything from horseshoes to swimming to golf and places to put out a blanket for a picnic. There is even a great playground for the kids!

There are ponds with ducks and their babies, Geese at certain times of year too. Picnic areas and many benches to stop and sit to read a book. I... More

It's a good place to go for a leisure walk. Trails are all flat and well groomed surrounded by big, green trees. We followed the Terry Fox route.
