|GETTING AWAY FROM IT ALL doesn’t have to be a big ordeal, nor does it have to cost any money at all. Sometimes, even a fall walk by the ocean is enough to recharge the batteries and remind you what is most important: breathing life into other things that breathe. We are surrounded by beautiful parks within a short driving distance or transit ride. So this fall, no matter what the weather looks like, get out and enjoy some fresh air. This week, we take you to a seaside park. PLACE: Barnet Marine Park (CLICK FOR MAP) LOCATION: Burnaby, BC. Have suggestions for UNPLUGGED this fall? Tweet me @amberturnau.|
Many of us who grew up in Metro Vancouver have visited Burnaby’s Barnet Marine Park as children at one point or another. But, I’ve just recently rediscovered this area and it’s now one of my favourite spots for a weekend walk.
Situated along the Barnet Highway on the way to Port Moody, it offers gorgeous views of Burrard Inlet and Deep Cove. The park has one of the best off leash dog parks in the area, which is great for our fur baby, Mickey.
