The park also hosts numerous events and festivals throughout the year, including a free concert by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra each summer. For a sportier day out, Central Park has great tennis courts and jogging trails, and Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park is fantastic for hiking and bird-watching.
