My son took us on a visit after his graduation at SFU. This park is truly beautiful. Paths, lawns, blooming gardens, old buildings meticulously maintained. A lakeside boardwalk, stunning views and plenty of places to sit and chill or picnic.

The Burnaby Lake Loop is 10km. You can't cut across the lake to shorten the walk so you'd have to turn back if you don't want to go for that long. There's lots to see along the route - rugby field, look out, short pier,...More
