Robert Burnaby Park is a large (48 hectares) public park in East Burnaby, just south of Burnaby Lake, located off Edmonds and 4th Street. It has an extensive trail system, as well as tennis courts and a swimming pool in the cleared upper slope area. The north end of the park contains a Disc Golf Course, one of only a handful in the Vancouver area. It is a favourite picnic spot for many residents of Burnaby and New Westminster. An off-leash zone is in the northern part of the park.

Ramsay Creek winds its way through the park, similar to many streams originating on the southern sloping hillside of Burnaby Lake and flowing into it.

The park is named for the colonial businessman Robert Burnaby, the founding father of Burnaby. It was created as a public works project during the Great Depression[1]
