If you intend to enjoy a natural environment excursion without leaving town, this lake is the ideal destination. The Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park offers you and your partners to engage in other activities within the city. The site is famous for skating but during the winter season, they put restrictions on this due to safety concerns. You can enjoy a canoe or kayak and get an up-close view of the busy beavers, incredible ducks, and feeding turtles. You can have a more invigorating bird watching experience at the viewing tower of the park and spot kingfishers, osprey, bald eagles, and one of the rarer birds; the small green-backed heron. One key advantage of this site is that it is accessible in a wheelchair and this is important if one of your family members is living with a disability. They will get to access the viewing point through the Piper Spit. For you to enjoy to the maximum and explore the activities at this site, ensure you get to the park early enough because the park closes at 5 pm.
