Map of Things to do in Burnaby

Its locale between Vancouver and New Westminster made Burnaby an important agricultural centre providing food for the two main cities. In recent years, due to its central location, Burnaby has become the third largest populated city in British Columbia, home to many people commuting to and from the Downtown Core.

The landscape of Burnaby is one of its most interesting features - although small in size, Burnaby ranges in elevation - its jewel, Burnaby Mountain, rises 1,200 meters above sea level and its saltwater beaches in Barnet Marine Park touch the ocean far below. Several lakes can be found throughout the city as well as park lands and heritage buildings.

Burnaby has found a niche in the 'Hollywood North' industry with several movies shot in the region annually as well as encompassing the largest film studio in the Greater Vancouver Region.

Burnaby, with its rich history and soaring mountain top views, has become an escape from the city.
