The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic provides an exciting opportunity to stay in Burnaby and explore the local sights. Here are several ways to make the most of your staycation in the Burnaby area:


Shop local

With COVID-19 health guidelines in place, farmers’ markets are allowed to remain open. Come out to support the best of Burnaby’s local food scene at the Burnaby City Hall parking lot every Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The farmers’ market is the place to find locally grown conventional and organic produce and prepared foods. 


Stay outdoors 

The Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park is the best way to reconnect with nature while staying in the city. You can view the lake from your canoe or kayak to get an up-close look at the busy beavers, diving ducks and turtles feeding in the marsh. The area is known as a wildlife sanctuary where visitors can spot rare birds, like the great blue heron. Located in central Burnaby, you can reach Burnaby Lake by walking, transit, car, or bicycle. 


Burnaby Central Railway

Looking to get away without actually getting away? Burnaby Central Railway is a miniature railway park where people of all ages can go for a ride on a miniature train! It is the perfect family-friendly activity that is Burnaby’s best-kept secret. The miniature railway is currently running reduced services, so plan ahead and read about everything you need to know about the Burnaby Central Railway before you go.
