Deer Lake Park offers a peaceful natural environment in the heart of the city. The trails meander around the lake and through unique meadows and woodlands. In the summer you can rent a boat, launch your own canoe, sailboat or rowboat on Deer Lake, or enjoy sunbathing on the beach at the lake's east end. There are also wildlife watching opportunities in the lake, forest, meadow and marsh areas. Bird watchers will be thrilled and horticulturalist shouldn't miss the Century Gardens, with hundreds of rhododendrons bursting in bloom every spring.
Deer Lake Park also plays host to such annual popular outdoor events such as the Burnaby Rhododendron Festival, the Burnaby Discovery Day Festival, Symphony in the Park and the Burnaby Blues + Roots Festival in its 10,000 seat natural amphitheatre. The House of Blues also programs a summer long series of music concerts.
