Park - Burnaby
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.
