Welcome to Burnaby
Burnaby at a Glance
Burnaby is located between the cities of Vancouver and New Westminster and has witnessed a dramatic transformation over the past 30 years. From rural outpost to sleepy suburb of Vancouver, Burnaby now stands alone as a self-sufficient, growing metropolitan area with varied attractions, no matter the season. With an abundance of shopping, restaurants and local attractions there is always something to do. Those looking for a sampling of Burnaby's culture will be sure to visit the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, home to a variety of special events, theatre productions and concerts throughout the year. Cosmopolitan Burnaby is still able to retain its quiet roots with Burnaby Mountain Park and the surrounding hills and lakes offering both tranquility and recreation. While enjoying the area make sure to picnic at the Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park or take a ride on the circa 1912 carousel found at Deer Lake Park. Visit the travel guides for the Fraser Valley and Whistler areas for information about other visitor destinations near Burnaby.
