Apart from this park in Burnaby, there are probably few locations in the Lower Mainland where you may, from one parking spot, visit an art gallery or an arts centre, explore a re-created village, stroll through formal gardens and enjoy a walk along a trail system by an enchanting little lake. Here, at Deer Lake, the city’s art collection is housed in a one-time mansion, its carefully preserved gardens providing a fitting setting also for the magnificent architecture of the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, Burnaby’s 1992 Centennial Legacy Project. Downhill to the east is the Burnaby Village Museum.

This is a spectacular park nestled in the middle of Burnaby (Vancouver) BC. It has a great set of trails that wind around Deer Lake in the middle of the park. Most of the trails are gravel, a few paved places, and a fair bit on raised wooden walkways (over the swampy areas). If you take the outer loop trail, it's just over 3 miles; but winding through some of the inner loops you could easily get over 5 miles. Note that the trails in the southeast corner have a fair bit of up-hill. Also in the southwest corner is a neat cultural area with some historic buildings, a museum, and more.
