Canoeing or Kayaking With a placid lake and marshy shores, Burnaby Lake Regional Park is one of the most pleasant spots in the Lower Mainland to canoe or kayak.
There is no cycling in the park. Cyclists following the Central Valley Greenway are reminded to use Cariboo Road and Winston Avenue. A pedestrian-only route for the Central Valley Greenway follows some of the park's trails. Visitors are welcome to use the Avalon Entrance parking lot to access both the Brunette-Fraser Regional Greenway and the Central Valley Greenway.
Dogs must be on-leash throughout the park. To protect bird habitat, dogs are prohibited on Piper Spit. Check local signs for details. Please show courtesy to other park visitors by removing your dog's droppings. more...
