This is a lovely park in North Burnaby with stunning views. This is apparently one of the best places to see the sunset in Vancouver. There are picnic spots and trails for walking and hiking through this conservation area. There are more than a dozen wooden poles carved by artisans from Japan, and which are a symbol of goodwill between Burnaby and its sister city, Kushiro, Japan. Overall a great place to visit, for a picnic or just walk around

It was great to get out and hike the trails. The views were a photographers dream. The trails were marked and so well kept.

Beautiful Park about 20 minutes east of Vancouver in Burnaby Heights. Here you will find stunning views, especially at sunset, of the mountains and the city. A restaurant at the top with restrooms facilities below, picnic and play areas, and a few trails primarily for walking and hiking through this gorgeous conservation area mountain paradise.
Significantly, more than a dozen carved wooden poles named Kamui Mintara (Playground of the Gods) rise dramatically on the horizon, overlooking the distant city.
The poles, the work of carvers Ainu Nuburi and his son Shusei Toko, members of Japan's aboriginal people, are a symbol of goodwill between Burnaby and its sister city, Kushiro, Japan.
The huge Park is home to deciduous and coniferous trees, black tail deer, coyotes, bald eagles and some occasional visitors such as black bears and cougars, to streams near the forest trails.
Some trails and attractions near the parking lot are wheelchair accessible. Great place to explore, be with family for a picnic, take photos, walk around, play with your kids. In addition, dogs on a leash are welcome.

Amazing scenic view of the Burard Inlet and the city of Vancouver. Also, an exciting place to visit the gorgeous, colourful rose garden and the carved wooden posts (Playground of the Gods) created by renowned Ainu modern sculpture Noburi Toku (Kushiro, Japan).

The park is a great place for walking, trails(runners/ hikers/cyclists), family picnic with playground and dogs on leash are allowed.

The Centennial Rose Garden is near the main parking lot and open for rental with its classy carriage (wedding/special event).

We spent a really enjoyable morning in the park. The parking was free as was the park. We took one of the trails which was steep but worth it to walk through the woods. The rose garden in the park was beautiful as was the sculptures. We would definitely recommend this park as the views of Vancouver are amazing.

This park offers stunning views of downtown Vancouver and the surrounding mountains and Pacific ocean. Come here on a warm sunny day to enjoy the glorious natural beauty of Vancouver from above. Its also worthwhile to stay for the sunset. You can participate in activities like hiking, jogging, strolling, or simply having a picnic with excellent views. Highly recommended for out of town visitors.

Some people come for the trails, and some for the food. Some bring their significant other just to sit in the parking lot and marvel at the sunset. I come for the views, and never tire of them. I strongly recommend this spot, especially to those new to our city - find your way here and see Burrard Inlet to the east, Indian Arm to the north, and Vancouver to the west, all by walking about 100 yards. The steep drop to the north allows relatively unimpeded views in all three directions.
Difficult to get to by public transit, but lots of free parking. Public restrooms adjacent the restaurant. Ainu art of Kushiro Park also close by.
All this in the middle of winter, no less.
