Confederation Park - Burnaby
Activity: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.
