Only one SkyTrain stop west from the busy Metrotown Shopping Mall, Central Park provides a pleasant oasis from the noise and bustle of the city. Easy to get to, it's directly across the road from Patterson SkyTrain Station.

Much quieter than Stanley Park, Burnaby's Central Park features a network of easy, level walking paths through coastal rainforest. As you stroll, jog or cycle along the tranquil pathways you may see some friendly squirrels and perhaps even spot a bald eagle soaring overhead. The park has two natural ponds where you'll find ducks, geese and other waterfowl. You might even spot some turtles. The park also has a seasonal outdoor pool, a children's playground and a small pitch-and-putt golf course with club rentals.

Central Park is also home to Swangard Stadium which hosts a number sporting events throughout the year. For complete details about Burnaby's Central Park see the official website above.

Burnaby Central Park Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating Beautiful park located in the city of Burnaby, the trails are well maintained and easily accessible. There are 2 small ponds in the centre of the park as well as a playground, restrooms, tennis courts and a concession stand. The whole park took about an hour to walk around. Very peaceful and relaxing way to unwind, there's lots of wildlife running about.

5 Star Rating I was there as a tourist, but it was an impressive experience. The forest really looks like a piece of wilderness moved to a crowded district. I saw a lot of birds, squirrels, and even a coyote there. The trails are not pavements (covered with gravel), so it doesn't look too urbanised, but hard enough to have a good grip at any weather. That place is highly recommended to visit 👌

5 Star Rating Nestled in the heart of the bustling city, Central park in Burnaby is a serene oasis of natural beauty. Unlike any other park in the city, it offers a variety of attractions and activities for visitors of all ages and interests. You can enjoy a scenic stroll, jog, or bike ride along the long perimeter walkway that surrounds the park, or explore the trails that weave through the majestic old-growth forest. The towering trees, some of which are over a century old, create a stunning backdrop for the park and a habitat for many woodland animals. You might spot squirrels, chipmunks, and even coyotes in the foliage, but please refrain from feeding them as it can harm their health and behaviour. The park also features two ponds, each with its own aquatic life. The lower pond is home to ducks, geese, and gulls, while the upper pond hosts colourful carp fish that swim gracefully under the water. On summer weekends, you can catch a glimpse of the miniature RC boat show, a fun and entertaining spectacle for both kids and adults. The show is organized by the Burnaby Association of Marine Modelers, a group of enthusiasts who share their passion for remote-controlled boats. Central park in Burnaby is a wonderful place to visit, whether you are looking for recreation, relaxation, or education. It is a park like no other in the city.
