Deer Lake Park in Burnaby: Butterflies And Nature

I visited the city of Burnaby in British Columbia, near Vancouver, after hearing good things about a quirky 1920s vintage village located here.

Burnaby Village Museum, as it’s called, wasn’t open until later on that morning and there were a few hours spare. The nearby Deer Lake Park turned out to be a beautiful location to spend this time having a relaxing walk – enjoying the greenery and stunning lake scenery.

Another charming feature of Deer Lake was the resident butterflies that could be seen fluttering all over the place.

It was August and the lake was covered with lily pads, carpeting the water with green and specks of white lily pad flowers. The stark contrast of a cityscape could be spotted in the background.

Facts about Deer Lake Park:

  • The park is located in Burnaby’s cultural quarter with sites such as Burnaby Art Gallery in the vicinity, along with the ‘living’ 1920s museum mentioned earlier.
  • Deer Lake has a variety of walking trails, including a board walk around the lake itself.
  • Boating takes place on the lake during the summer months and members of the public can hire out kayaks and pedal boats.
  • Deer Lake Park also acts as an outdoor concert venue. I was gutted to have noticed a poster advertising a Florence and the Machine gig coming up that I would have been made up to have seen. However, it was too late.
  • There is plenty of wildlife and Deer Lake is part of a salmon run route.
