Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I wouldn't normally be writing again so soon, but wanted to advise you of the changes in the trail system. The park itself, centred on the playground, fitness circuit, and picnic grounds east and west of Byrne Road remain about the same. However, for those like me who look forward to walking along the river on a well shaded trail that's easy on the ankles, no longer possible. While a few km of the old trails still exist, the westerly part has been redyked, and the trail on the dyke is asphalt, about ten feet wide. No shade, no give, no solitude. Good for bikes, bad for hikes.

Haven't been here for over a year. Usually come to enjoy a walk along the river on a hot day, when the trees provide enough shade to keep the walk comfortable.
However, ever mindful of Covid, spending more time meeting friends in the open air, rather than in restaurants. So, when it was suggested a meeting here one afternoon, I thought it worth a try. Not disappointing - lots of parking, typical park benches for picnicking or just sitting, clean restrooms, a play area for young children, and a great view of the river.
What more does one want for a pleasant afternoon?

This is a perfect park for a relaxing walk anytime of the year and rain or shine. Lots of birds and many trails that branch off from the river

Located at the south foot of Byrne Road, so a bit difficult to access, especially by public transit. But, has lots of parking.
In addition to great trails stretching in both directions along the Fraser River, the developed portion includes restrooms, a play area, and picnic tables. There is said to be an off-leash dog area, but I didn't see it. Walking west, you will note separate trails for bikes and people.
We like this trail best in the hot dry weather, when the trees bring shade, and the breeze off the river makes walking pleasant, rather than an effort.

The park is on the north side of the North Arm of the Fraser River in Burnaby BC. Within the strict boundaries of the park, one finds a separate blacktop path for bikes, separate from the walking pathway, both of which follow the river's shoreline. Beyond the park boundary, gravel/earthen biking paths extend on the east side close to New Westminster, and on the west side it connects up with the Vancouver pathways. The vistas of the river traffic include tugboats pulling log booms, pleasure craft, and you might see a logger running across a docked boom! The park has washrooms, workout stations, children's playground, picnic tables and barbecue facilities. Biking east, one passes under the trestle of a railway bridge crossing the river. About 50 yds. later, turn left into a natural park, with several bridges over water, a circular path, and many opportunities for quietly enjoying nature. Not well used, the park has many bird species including waterfowl.

Living within driving distance to this park makes it one of my favourite places to visit year around. A paradise for photographers as well as dog walkers, this park has always been on my weekly visits. Plenty of picnic tables as well as places to sit and enjoy a sunset

Best place to access is the foot of Byrne Road, which has parking and facilities. About 2.6 km to the west is Vancouver, where the trail continues. As you walk west, the river is on your left. After about two km, the trees on the right give way to the rears of industrial buildings. But, still a great walk. Very few people when I was there on a sunny Saturday morning. The trail also heads east from Byrne Road, but I haven't taken it for a while, so can't comment.

Fraser River Foreshore Park
Nice area for a quiet walk with views of activity on the river, notably barges towing logbooms. We walked from the parking lot to the estuary/wetland area. The path is paved initially (pedestrians may have to share it with cyclists), then becomes unpaved (pedestrians only) as you enter the nature conservation area. There are some benches in the paved section and a small pier with viewing area. The CPR bridge as you enter the nature area is no longer in use.

Kudos to Burnaby parks department for the skookum panabode washrooms adjacent to the parking lot — a toasty warm surprise on a chilly winter day.
