A beautifully maintained trail around a lake. Some people were fishing, others were on canoes. The trail is flat and easy for everyone. The trail loop itself takes about 40+ minutes to complete.

not really exciting, the birds are beautiful though

Great easy walk for all year round. Nice selection of trails, and some beautiful serene scenery. Nicely located geographically in the lower mainland so easy to get to from everywhere. Checkout the a video of the trail here: https://youtu.be/un4YnsKhTG0

It's a nice stroll. Take your (leashed) dog; take your baby stroller; take your camera. Watch for eagles on the south-east section of the path. There's more wildlife than you'd think; just look for it.

Easy trail with gentle inclines and declines around a beautiful lake. Good for a relaxing stroll anytime of the day or an energetic run.

nothing special but still it has decent looks

Easy walk with multiple options for different loops and customized distance. Areas in the sun and shade. Parking is a bit limited. A bit busy with people on a sunny Sunday afternoon and some spots you can hear traffic noise.

Nice for easy hiking with children

Great for stroller walks as well

Beautiful view, the trails are boardwalks. Good for a short walk. I would not suggest this trail if you have large dogs

A fantastic, level riparian trail in the middle of a big city. Thanks Burnaby for your incredible foresight in saving this natural gem for everyone to enjoy. Perfect for bird lovers.

A gem of a trail! Once you start walking around the lake, you quickly forget this park is in the big city. There are so many trail points you can start at, all with free parking. From boardwalks, to gravel, and dirt paths.. this trail is always changing. All year round is astonishingly beautiful. The boardwalks do get a bit slippery in the winter though. This is a bird watchers paradise, and a duck haven. You'll find most of the water fowl at the beach looking for feed from visitors. Remember, bread is bad for birds/ducks/geese, bring wild bird seed! You'll see a heron here and there, but during mating season, you'll find over sixty nests in the tall trees at the west end of the park, visible from Deer Lake Parkway. It's quite something to see. And if you love turtles, there is one particular fallen tree at the edge of the lake where you'll find up to fifteen of them bathing on hot days. One winter I even saw a bobcat! Leaving the wilderness behind, there is so much to do in this park. There are hourly boat rentals at a reasonable price near the beach which makes for a fun day and gives you a completely different perspective of the lake. As well, the Shadbolt Center offers many art classes and workshops, and has a fabulous little theatre. The park also puts on concerts and festivals, some even free! If you're feeling peckish, the Express Cafe has a great choice of food and snacks. This is a park you'll find yourself returning to time and time again.

A nice walk around the lake. Unfortunately they were filming a tv show when I was there so a lot of trail was blocked off. A lot of it is also uncovered through more of a field.

Also worth checking out the free art gallery while you're there.

This trail is not at Deer Lake - it's at Burnaby Lake. Lovely, flat and well maintained 10k loop - an oasis in the middle of the city

Nice park with wooden walkway round most of it. Was very busy, families, dogs, runners etc. Lots of ducks and a little beach with swings. Is good for kids / dogs
