Deer lake Park is one of my favourite places to walk during all seasons especially when I don’t have a lot of time. The walk is flat and easily accessible for people of all abilities. Parts of the trail are boardwalk and the trails are clearly marked as well. This park is especially mesmerizing on a sunny spring day which I was lucky to find on Sunday. The water is a beautiful rich blue and along the trail you can see gorgeous mountain views as well as city views of the tall buildings in Burnaby. I find always find this interesting because it brings together the best of both worlds. There is also a viewpoint on one part of the trail which allows you to get a bit more of a bird’s eye view of the trail. There are opportunities to see wildlife in this park and I was lucky enough to witness about five turtles sunbathing on a log in the lake which was exciting to see. You definitely have to keep your eyes open to see these treasures. Starting on Easter the kayak rentals will reopen and I hope to come back to try out kayaking in the warmer months as this is the perfect quiet lake to test this hobby out. Needless to say I will definitely be back to this trail and am excited to see where this spring weather takes me!
