Easy access to this park; take the Horizons restaurant turn off. The park offers awesome views of Vancouver/lower mainland to the west, the inlet to the north, and much of Burnaby/New West to the south. Views are obviously better on clear weather moments. Very nice sunsets. The park has easy walkways, and features gardens, mature trees, and unique topiaries. The... More

I lived about 10 minutes drive from the park for over 20 years and frequently took my dog up there for walks. From the top there is a wonderful view of Burrard Inlet to the north. Looking east through the carved wooden poles of the "Playground of the Gods" there is a stunning view of Vancouver and the North Shore... More

My nephew and I came up here one day this July for some hiking with views of the inlet. We found the views from the trails were very poor actually as are overgrown which is great from a tree and shrub point of view but not from a views point of view. The best views are from the top where... More

Burnaby Mountain Park is a view that only being on a mountain top can provide. But, unlike many mountain view which are limited, this view reaches nearly 360 degrees. From this peak you can look over to English Bay in downtown Vancouver and up to far reaches of Burrard Inlet and down into Port Moody. This is the place to... More

Delightful place to picnic or enjoy a restaurant meal overlooking the skyscape of beautiful Vancouver. Part of the Transcanada trail with the highlight of japanese totems.

On a clear day you can see the inlet in both directions. Great for a stroll and to understand more about Burnaby and British Columbia, this site is a favourite to watch the annual meteor showers. Trails lead to and from for the more adventurous.

I really like this place, it gives you lots of options, It's perfect for just starring out into downtown Vancouver or the North shore mountains, going for a hike or riding your bike. If you have small children the playground is quite fun and in the summer the gardens are quite nice. Has a great restaurant that's not to overly... More

This is a great place to visit in the winter if it snows or is foggie. Especially for children. It is also a great place in summer. The view is fantastic.
