Deer lake is located near the centre of Burnaby, BC and is about 35 ha (90 acres) in area. The area is a nature oasis in the City of Burnaby. There are a number of easy walking trails and points of entry. I parked at the parking lot off Sperling Avenue. The trail around the lake is short and sweet; they are flat with many elevated boardwalks to protect the sensitive aquatic ecosystems. To add some distance to your hike, I suggest a walk up to see the original stairs for Oakalla Prison (which used to be located in the area).
