I love being a tourist in my own town and exploring nature in the city. In Burnaby there are beautiful parks and Deer Lake Park is one of them.
Deer Lake Park in the summer has boat rentals where people can rent kayaks, canoes, or peddle boats to scoot around the small lake. Deer Lake has a beautiful walking trail around the lake with a wooden boardwalk that cuts across one end of the lake. There are ducks around surprising few mosquitoes as it is not as large as Burnaby Lake. It is easy to walk around Deer Lake Park in less than an hour.
Even in the summer, we were able to enjoy an evening stroll before dinner. I was happy we were walking instead of running. Save the running for the cool fall weather. Enjoy the views of the lake on a summer day!
