Fraser Foreshore Park
As part of the 2012-2014 Flood Protection Works Program, the City of Burnaby will be constructing flood protection works at various locations along the Fraser Foreshore, from the eastern City boundary adjacent to the City of New Westminster, to Boundary Road adjacent to the City of Vancouver (note that not all sections shown on the map are included in the 2012-2014 program). In 2012, a new dyke is being constructed along Fraser Park Drive (referred to as Reach 6), from Tillicum Street to the existing CN Rail bridge. The new Reach 6 dyke will also provide a trail connecting the existing trails within the existing Fraser Foreshore Park to the trailhead at the end of Fraser Park Drive.
Access to the trailhead at the end of Fraser Park Drive will be closed to the public until completion of the Reach 6 project, which is planned for early December. For more information, please contact Burnaby Engineering at 604-294-7460.
Unlike most parcels of prime real estate, parks are public property –a legacy for this generation and those to come. And the public – namely you, the citizens of Burnaby and anyone else visiting our beautiful city – are welcome to take full advantage of our generous, expansive network of green spaces.
Under a big-sky canopy, individuals, couples, friends and family groups enjoy the great outdoors year-round. And there are literally dozens of ways to take in the fresh air: strolling, hiking, cycling, jogging, sailing, canoeing, swimming, fishing, bird-watching and picnicking. Plus no shortage of opportunities for hanging out, relaxing, meditating or simply doing nothing but breathing.
Taking a necessary break from our busy lives, we begin to vibrate at nature’s calm frequency when setting the clock to park time. Our 158 parks range from pocket-sized community spots to vast landscapes that feature a mix of rolling grasslands, dense forest, secret ravines and waterfront beaches and trails. The meandering trails of Deer Lake Park provide endless opportunities for exploration. Central Park, meanwhile, also offers an array of sports and recreation facilities for all ages. You'll fall head-over-sneakers in love with our parks!
