For a sportier day out, Central Park has great tennis courts and jogging trails, and Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park is fantastic for hiking and bird-watching. Keep an eye out for eagles and herons soaring above the park. In winter, try heading to the Burnaby 8-Rinks, which is the largest ice rink complex in the world.
