Richard Bolton Park on Burnaby Mountain

A short drive up the mountain you will find breathtaking views and so many fun activities to do with your kids. 

There are endless walking trails, picnic tables, and a playground your kids will love called Richard Bolton Park. This is a smaller playground perfect for younger children. This play area has a warm community feel with benches, art work and nature all around. 

Nearby there is an incredible playground which is perfect for older kids, but it is part of the elementary school. During school hours it is best to avoid it, but after school and on the weekends it is there to enjoy.
