Deer Lake Park
The beautiful park surrounding Deer Lake is the hub of arts, culture and history in Burnaby. Step back in time at the Burnaby Village Museum & Carousel, visit the Burnaby Art Gallery or check out the entertainment at the James Cowan Theatre or the outdoor Concert Bowl. Don''t miss the stunning architecture of the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts or the historic Hart House Restaurant.
Deer Lake Park offers a peaceful natural environment in the heart of the city. The trails meander around the lake and through unique meadows and woodlands. In the summer you can rent a boat, launch your own canoe, sailboat or rowboat on Deer Lake, or enjoy sunbathing on the beach at the lake''s east end. There are also wildlife watching opportunities in the lake, forest, meadow and marsh areas. Bird watchers will be thrilled and horticulturalist shouldn''t miss the Century Gardens, with hundreds of rhododendrons bursting in bloom every spring.
