Burnaby – The Crest
7551 CASCADE ST, BURNABY, BC V3N 4W1, CANADA
The Crest is nestled between three green areas, all of which offer hiking and walking opportunities along natural trails as well as buffer the neighbourhood from the traffic of Highway 1. In fact, if you didn’t look at a map, you’d be hard-pressed to know the highway is even there!
Robert Burnaby Park, in the neighbourhood’s northwest corner, is a mostly hidden gem with nature trails, babbling brooks, an off-leash area for dogs, an outdoor swimming pool, playground and one of the prettiest baseball diamonds in Metro Vancouver, surrounded by tall cedars.
Just to the north, Burnaby Lake Regional Park is an urban oasis where a walk along the trails surrounding the lake will take you past beaver lodges, a boggy marsh, a competitive and recreational rowing basin, as well as rugby and cricket pitches.
Brunette River Park runs along the Crest’s northeast border where shaded trails provide welcome relief on a hot summer day, and sport fishers can try their luck catching a salmon in the river.
The neighbourhood is serviced by a small commercial plaza with a grocery store, restaurants, a bakery and services. It’s also handy to the Edmonds commercial district and New Westminster’s Sapperton district.
There are public transportation routes that run throughout the neighbourhood and transfer users to various SkyTrain Stations. Drivers also have very easy access to Highway 1 via Cariboo Road. Cyclists can quickly roll to the Central Valley Greenway.
