This 86.4 hectare urban oasis is renowned for its douglas fir, western hemlock, cedar, poplar and maple groves. It is also popular for exemplary sports and recreation facilities such as tennis courts, outdoor swimming pool, horseshoe pitch and a pitch-and-putt golf course.
This is definitely a relaxing family-friendly location situated in Burnaby, where you can have picnics and stroll around revelling in the tranquility of nature. I enjoyed how zen and relaxing it was to escape into Central Park. It's a great place for a calming walk as you drink in the crisp forest air. We walked along the Terry Fox 5km trail and visited both Upper and Lower Ponds.
