Confederation Park - Burnaby

by Dad


Confederation Park is one of the bigger parks in Burnaby and is a nice place to visit on a lazy Sunday.  There's lots of facilities:  picnic and barbecue areas, a new modern indoor swimming pool (the Eilleen Daily pool), a track for races with kids, water park, playground, and to top it off a miniature train.  Jen and Nath loved the train and playground.

On a Sunday in the summer the park can be crowded with picnickers.

Watch the elderly Italian men argue over boccie.
