The City of Burnaby is setting up Christmas lights at four new locations this year.

In total, 26 parks and public spaces will be illuminated with decorative displays. Highlights include Hastings Street, which has been transformed into a 2.3-kilometre holiday promenade of lights between Boundary Road and Gamma Avenue, and the Edmonds neighbourhood, which features several displays within walking distance of one another.

Wherever you choose to explore in Burnaby, the City of Burnaby’s online guide and map will help you plan your route. Right now they're listing the 22 places that have been lit up in Christmases past.

Four new locations will be adorned with lights for the first time in 2019:

  • West Building at City Hall complex is adorned with 350 shimmering lights, adding to an impressive display of lights at Deer Lake Park.
  • Kingsway and Edmonds features a large decorative tree at one Burnaby’s busiest intersections.
  • One of Burnaby’s most scenic locations, Burnaby Mountain Park, comes to life with a display featuring floodlights and 14 illuminated trees.
  • Already one of the top spots in the city for families over the holidays, Tram Plaza at Burnaby Village Museum (opening Nov 23) now features decorative lanterns.

The city is encouraging residents and visitors alike to add the #burnabylights hashtag to online posts featuring their favourite Burnaby holiday light displays.

“Burnaby’s public light displays create a sense of warmth and wonder in our community during the holiday season,” said Mayor Mike Hurley, in a news release. “With four new displays added this year, there is no better time to get outside with friends and family to explore our beautiful city.”
