Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating I came the other day on a gravel bicycle ride. I have always wanted to ride the south rim of the park by bicycle and I finally got the chance. Burnaby Lake is a beautiful park with lots of trails perfect for walking, horseback riding and cycling. A wonderful slice of nature in the heart of burnaby. The noise from the highway is not too bad and the trails are well maintained. 100% would ride again. On my favourite list.

4 Star Rating Beautiful park in the city! The trail around the lake is flat but long… almost 10k to do the whole thing. Lots of points of interest… bird feeding/watching, equestrian, model plane flying, boat club, soccer, and so on. Plenty of parking space available.

5 Star Rating It's a great sport complex with great quality Turf fields. But it needs multiple covered area for spectators and parents to protect them from rain and sun.

How to get to Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park by Skytrain and Bus

From Metrotown Station take either the #144 SFU or #110 Lougheed Station bus and get off at Sprott Street and Kensington Avenue.

From Sperling Station take the #144 Metrotown or the #110 Metrotown bus to the same stop (opposite side of road). Cross over Kensington Ave and walk west along Sprott Street into the west entrance to the park. Follow the paths through the sports fields to the start of the trail network. Note if boarding at Sperling Station be sure to take the 144 or 110 Metrotown, not the 144 SFU or 110 Lougheed Station - both directions pick up in the same respective bays. Alternatively, you can also walk to Burnaby Lake from Sperling Station along a new trail. Just cross over the pedestrian overpass immediately south of Sperling Station bus loop and continue along the trail for about 800 meters into the park.
