How to get to Burnaby Lake 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.
