Ratedout of 5
Warm, light-filled, performance centre with lots of seating and very comfortable vibes. We didn’t check out any of the performances but saw the beautiful space. There were some display glasses with really cool art displays of owls and puppets. Parking is available at the Burnaby Art Gallery for up to 3 hours. It is also close to deer lake and a nearby playground.

I fell in love with that place! It provides you with some good positive energy! It’s warm, cozy & embracing. It’s a favourite picnic spot to many, haven’t tried yet, but will soon. The place hosts children's dance classes, music recitals, and live theatre productions. It also has a cafe with hot food and a variety of sweet treats. A great place to take a little rest while walking around dear lake.

Great location. Well kept. My kids have participated in many programs here and although each class and instructor is different, they never had any negative experiences. Also great place to hold an event e.g., held a couple of birthday parties there in the past. Ample parking unless there is a major event, but they usually inform those impacted.

My best favourite place to picnic. Recently become more charming for the autumn colours. There's a huge beautiful meadow between the Art Center and Deer Lake where is the perfect place for human and gooses to share and enjoy the outdoors. Free parking lot in the front and always with plenty of empty slots.
