Staying at hotel nearby so explored the park two mornings while hubby was at meetings. Great trails, wide and well kept plus lots of fun little side trails..Very popular park, wheel chair accessible, dog walkers, speed walkers, families feeding the ducks, runners, and people doing 3 types of Tai Chi. I noticed Lawn bowling and horseshoe pits. Basically clean but... More

Nice park to ride a bike or to take a leisurely walk. Also there is a work out course if you need a quick work out. There are two ponds, creek, stadium, horse shoe pit, pitch and put, and outdoor pool (only open in summer).

Central Park is designed for all ages. From exercise equipment along the trails. Trail designed for joggers and those just feeling an amble is sufficient for today. There is a large sports arena which is used for many sports for schools, Statuary Holiday celebrations for many different ethnic occasions. Large ponds filled with birds and large and small fish. Every... More

Stanley Park is, of course, more well known. Central Park, which sits just outside Vancouver's boundary (actually next to Boundary Road!) is the oxygen creator for both Burnaby and Vancouver. Lots of ground to walk. Also offers a 9 hole pitch and putt! Great place to have a family picnic!

My daughter and I arrived in Burnaby after a drive from the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal and needed a place to breathe out after facing the city traffic. I remembered Central Park from the years that my Mom had lived nearby, so we found the entrance off Imperial. Parking the vehicle, we were charmed to see a pond, ducks and... More

We enjoy visiting here for a quick walk in the trees even though you are still in the city. We also enjoy using the golf pitch and putt that they have here. Avoid this place if you are scared of squirrels as it is crawling in them. Grey, black, brown and bushy. Everywhere you look.

Live close to this park and I frequent it at least 3-4 times a week. It has great trails for runs and leisurely walks where you will see a lot of squirrels bouncing around. It has two small lakes with numerous families of ducks wandering around which makes great picture subjects. I believe some of the trees in this park... More

From toddlers to seniors: Playground for kids, training circuit for the young, exercise group for the seniors, 3 trails for the walkers and runners, horseshoe pit, golf course and swimming pool. Most of all, thanks for the park keepers, it is well kept.

This park is a really nice place to go for a walk or run. Patterson Skytrain Station is right at the edge of the park. Almost the entire park is forest, with gravel walking trails through it. There's tennis courts, a golf course, a couple ponds, a playground, a pool, and some other ammenities. Throughout the park there's some things... More

What a great park right at the boundary of Vancouver and Burnaby. This park has everything from an outdoor pool, children's playground, a sand pit, two ponds, BBQ areas, to a mini golf (for 8 yrs old & up). I spent the whole afternoon here with my three young children and they didn't want to leave! Recommend to bring snacks... More
