There’s a 10-kilometre loop trail around the lake that must have some good views, but we weren’t able to find the interesting sections. We started off at the parking lot near the rowing pavilion. A park maintenance worker could tell us nothing about the trails...More

I reluctantly entered the loop trail on an intensely grey and wet Saturday morning. I am actually surprised I made it into the parkland. It was miserable! I tried to include a companion, but was declined. I admit the first little bit was horrible. Although...More

We parked at the Nature House entrance to the park. The day we were there they had volunteers clearing brush. There was also a host on hand and we had a lovely chat about the birds and the history of the park. Next we went...More

Could only do a couple of short walks to Pipers Spit and Lookout as well as around the Cariboo dam. Even though you're in the middle of a big city it feels like you're wandering in natural woodlands and wetland. Lots of birds, flowing waters,...More

This park is so calming. It could be "crowded" with people on the spit but the lake is huge and you can go for long walks. Once around the lake is 10km so you can get your exercise in while you relax with the beautiful...More

Burnaby Lake, the largest lake in the Metro Vancouver area, is home to many birds. Some species are seen year-round while others are more seasonal. One of my favorites is the colorful Wood Duck. There is a healthy population of Wood Ducks near the boardwalk-type...More

Endless walks and bird watching. A gem and another reason why Burnaby is great! You can access the park from several different areas.

There are two main points of access to the lake - a large car park with lots of space adjacent to the rugby club, as well as a small parking area close to the Spit and Nature House. Note that you need to cross railway...More

This is right in our backyard. Beautiful escape from the city except for the yum of the highway traffic. Great trails and picnic spots and photo shot spots.

When visiting family and staying close to the park, I enjoy making the round. It's about 10 kilometers and a great run. One side is more visited than the other, but you meet people all along. Lovely views, all that nature has to offer in...More
