Rose Garden, Burnaby Mountain

Burnaby

Burnaby is a modern city with all major facilities, attractions and outdoor activities. It is the home of Metrotown, a vibrant regional town centre, encompassing a complete range of shopping, accommodation, and recreation facilities. Within Metrotown visitors can experience Central Park, complete with nature trails, picnic, and even golf facilities. Burnaby Village offers a step back in time to rediscover the region’s urban heritage. This authentic turn of the century town offers many attractions including the restored vintage 1912 carousel. Costumed townsfolk welcome visitors to their shops and homes with demonstrations and fascinating hands-on activities.

Despite being an urban center, the region is home to many parks. The Deer Lake Park is intimate and peaceful, with trails through cool woods, grassy meadows, and lakeside vistas. The park is rampant with avian wildlife. In addition to offering a heritage walking tour, the park houses the Burnaby Art Gallery, and Century Gardens, two must see attractions for visitors. Burnaby Lake Regional Park is a stunning wildlife sanctuary with excellent bird-watching opportunities. Look for great blue herons, bald eagles, belted kingfishers, and osprey – you might even spot rarer birds such as the green-backed heron. With spectacular views of Vancouver, Richmond, the harbour and mountains, Burnaby Mountain Park is a local favourite for hiking enthusiasts. The park’s network of trails provides untold opportunities for outdoor recreation, nature interpretation, and education in Burnaby.

A Step Back in Time

Burnaby was incorporated in 1892 and achieved City status in 1992, one hundred years later. In the first 30 to 40 years after its incorporation, the growth of the region was influenced by its location between expanding urban centres of Vancouver and New Westminster. It first served as a rural agricultural area supplying nearby markets. Later, it served as an important transportation corridor between Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, and the interior of the Province.
