Barnet Marine Park, just off the Barnet Highway is a long and narrow Park sandwiched between the railway tracks and Indian Arm. A popular summer destination, visitors can enjoy lunch at one of the dozens of picnic tables strewn throughout the park or spread out a blanket and umbrella at the beaches while enjoying views of the fjord, tankers and other marine vessels sailing by. The nearby pier is popular with fishers and crabbers and the grassy lawn is also a welcome spot to sit and enjoy the park.
Barnet Marine Park is best known for its historic remnants that once were a small community and one of the largest lumber mills in the region. The skeleton of the scrap burner is now a recognized heritage site sitting on a dock where visitors can roam through the dilapidated brick structure and one of the mil structures still sits among picnic tables. Thousands of bricks from the old buildings create the shore along the western edge of the Park - most still falling from the remnants of the mill.
One thing to be aware of is the limited parking available on site. All parking is located before the railways tracks - visitors must park in the three parking lots - the road continues over the tracks but only handicapped parking and short term off loading is permitted. Visitors to the park can take a short path along the road to the eastern edge or the bridge which goes over the railway tracks and leads to the old burner.
A tranquil Park with plenty to see and enjoy, Barnet Marine Park on the foreshores of Indian Arm in Burnaby is the city's only saltwater beach and is a popular and interesting place to explore throughout the year.
