Established in 1949, Deer Lake Park is an urban oasis in the center of Burnaby, British Columbia. Historically, the Deer Lake Park region was once covered in temperate rainforest dominated by conifers - most which were logged in the early 20th century. Today, the surrounding forest is now a mix of decidious and coniferous trees intermingled with trails, boardwalks, gardens and historic buildings. A perfect place to enjoy a beautiful day, Deer Lake Park offers visitors the opportunity to the unique mixture of heritage and wilderness.
Visitors to Deer Lake Park can enjoy a wide range of activities within the Park's boundaries including hiking and cycling (trail map), boating (bring your own or rent a canoe, kayak or a pedal boat), bird and animal spotting and as well, explore the Park's Century Gardens where hundreds of Rhododendrons bloom in Spring.
On the northern edge of Deer Lake Park, visitors can explore Burnaby's rich history and arts scene located adjacent to the Burnaby Art Gallery, the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, the Burnaby Village Museum and Hart House Restaurant. During the summer season, the park is a setting for several festivals and concerts making it a bustling hub of activity.
