Burnaby's Unofficial Parks Advocate

I love Burnaby's many parks, and so do my twin children Jack and Emma.

Since 2020, we have gone to the following parks in Burnaby:

- Alta Vista Reservoir Park
- Avondale Park
- Beecher Park
- Bell Park
- Bonsor Park
- Braemar Park
- Brentwood Park
- Broadview Park
- Burnaby Heights Park
- Cameron Park
- Camrose Park
- Cariboo Park
- Central Park
- Charles Rummel Park
- Confederation Park
- David Gray Park
- Deer Lake Park
- Eastburn Park
- Edmonds Park
- Forest Glen Park
- Forest Grove Park
- Fraser Foreshore Park
- George Green Park
- George McLean Park
- Greentree Village Park
- Halifax Park

- Macey Park
- Maple Grove Park
- Maywood Park
- Meadowood Park
- Montecito Park
- Poplar Park
- Robert Burnaby Park
- Richard Bolton Park
- Ron McLean Park
- Royal Oakland Park
- Simon Fraser Hills Park
- Springer Park
- Squint Lake Park
- Stoney Creek School Park
- Stratford Park
- Sumas Park
- Taylor Park
- Wesburn Park
- West-Sells Park
- Westridge Park
- Willard Park
- Willingdon Heights Park

I believe all Burnaby residents should have access to safe and clean parks that are accessible to people of all abilities and ages.

As well, Burnaby needs to aggressively remove invasive plant species such as Himalayan blackberry, giant knotweed and English ivy, and plant native plant species that will encourage pollination by bees and other insects.

The City of Burnaby should do a better job telling the story of the people and geographic features that helped shape and grow this community over the past 200 years with an interactive program tied to QR code technology.

"Perspectives" at Jim Lorimer Park

Back in December 2021 on a beautiful sunny day,  I walked around the decommissioned posts and realized they line up well with the buildings around the park depending on where you were standing.
