Shadbolt Centre for the Performing Arts Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating 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.

5 Star Rating 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.

5 Star Rating 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.

5 Star Rating Great selection of programs for the kids. A wonderful place to be. Amazing architecture, lots of air and wood. Modern yet feels like home. Lots of waiting areas for the parents who are waiting. A little coffee shop with some standard options is nice to have if you’re desperate. Maybe this could be upgraded with time? The outside space is even more beautiful, lots of nature around.
