Fraser Foreshore Park... If a leisurely, after dinner stroll on a level canopied trail, by a slow moving river, is what you’re looking for, Burnaby’s Fraser Foreshore Park is for you. Relax and enjoy the cool breeze; watch the industrious tugs as they guide laden log booms to the nearest saw mill; and, track the high, overhead jets as they make their way home to the Vancouver International Airport (as you wonder from what exotic locale they are returning). Viewing a beautiful sunset will be an added bonus to your evening’s enjoyment.
