Recreation Ideas in Burnaby
Shopping at Metrotown is not the only form of recreation in Burnaby. In fact, if you’re not a shopaholic, then there are plenty of alternatives to consider. Adjacent to the shopping at Metrotown is the spectacular urban park of Central Park. Central Park on it’s own will keep you busy for a lifetime. Walking trails cut left and right and east and west and north and south throughout the park where you can gaze skyward towards the beautiful old growth trees in the heart of the city. Golf anyone? It’s not a full course but the pitch and putt at Central Park makes it fun for kids and adults of all levels of golf. The spectacular scenery around the course can distract nicely from a terrible golf game…speaking for myself! If golf isn’t your thing then head over to the superb tennis courts that will please any player. If it’s a nice day then the courts will be busy, so read the rules and you’ll see understand how you should get yourself a court. After tennis you should consider a dip in the outdoor pool at Central Park if it’s summertime. For indoor swimming and fun then check out the many community centres throughout the city of Burnaby. If you’re looking for more rugged scenery then head across town to Burnaby Mountain at the base of Simon Fraser University. If you want to hike or run, then endless trails await you. There are also many options for mountain biking. These ideas just scratch the surface for fun things to do in Burnaby.
