I grew up just a few blocks Burnaby Lake and because of this I witness how the park changed over the years. Many new paths were created, roadways paved, accesses made easier. As a result, I have been coming back to my childhood to discover that it gets easier to explore this park. The west side of the lake has seen the most changes over the years starting with the introduction of the soccer fields starting in 1972 and then modifications to the pathways and tennis courts, and now, a new swimming pool complex will replace the original complex. The park will continue growing for years to come and nature will continue to flourish.
