hat does it take to be considered “the best” in Burnaby? Not only does it take unending effort, but it also takes a loyal clientele to fill out ballots as they do every year in our Best of Burnaby contest. You have in your hands the culmination of thousands of votes in over 100 different categories of what residents consider the Best in Burnaby, ranging from the best breakfast to the best view and everything in between. We’re proud to note that 2019 marks our 22nd year conducting this annual poll. And we proudly congratulate each and every winner on our list from those who have been recognized year after year as well as all the newcomers. Although the nature of such a contest may be subjective, the number of votes

we receive offers validity to the title “the best,” especially when the voters are resident experts. Every year, we publish our ballots and encourage readers to vote by sending us their entries or by voting online with the promise of a chance to win a $1,000 shopping spree donated by Metropolis at Metrotown. We encourage you to keep the Best of Burnaby list and refer to it from time to time as you explore what Burnaby has to offer, and of course don’t forget to vote next year!

Symphony In The Park at Deer Lake

best outdoor concert of the year

kkSYMPHONY IN THE PARK

E

very summer, thousands of music lovers descend on Deer Lake for the city’s favourite outdoor concert of the year: Symphony in the Park. This year will mark the 32nd annual summer performance of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra on the concert lawn at Deer Lake. The performance is an extravaganza of popular classics that draws

more than 10,000 concertgoers a year. Each summer, people of all ages turn out well in advance of concert time with their lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy a picnic dinner under the summer skies. This year, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra is planning to make the popular all-ages event even bigger, adding family activities and participation from the VSO

School of Music to keep young folks entertained in the afternoon. There will also be a pre-concert performance by members of the VSO Orchestral Institute. A few pro tips for those who want to attend: Arrive early (at least a couple of hours in advance) and, if possible, plan to take transit or make alternative travel

arrangements, since parking around Deer Lake will be packed to overflowing. This year’s concert is set for Sunday, June 30. See www.vancouversymphony.ca/ summer-2019 for all the details.

best politician

kkMAYOR MIKE HURLEY

M

ayor Mike Hurley has been voted Burnaby’s best politician in the Burnaby NOW’s 2019 Best Of Awards. The former ďŹ reďŹ ghter and union leader was elected to the city’s top job this past October, beating longtime incumbent Derek Corrigan. Hurley’s campaign slogan was “Time for changeâ€? and the people of Burnaby appeared to agree. The political newcomer not only beat Corrigan by a comfortable margin – 26,260 to 20,333 – he received the most votes at all of

the city’s 34 voting places. Hurley promised to make housing more affordable, to invest more in recreation facilities and to be a better listener. So far, he’s shown no indication he plans to break any of those vows. He recently convened a new housing task force, opened four “warming centres� for homeless people and forwarded plans to update or replace four recreation facilities. The new mayor has also promised to increase policing and add more sidewalks and improve local parks.

best burnaby celebrity

kkMICHAEL BUBLÉ

B

urnaby has pretty solid history of celebrities. Some who regularly get votes in this category include actor Carrie-Anne Moss, NHL’s Joe Sakic and Global News’ Squire Barnes, but this category could in fact be called the battle of the Michaels – Michael J. Fox and Michael Bublé as both get a majority of the votes. Michael Bublé won this year’s Best of Burnaby celebrity – the eighth consecutive win. Bublé is back with the new album called Love after the arrival of a baby girl named Vida with his wife Luisana Lopilato after having taken extensive time off performing to take care of his young son while he was battling cancer. Part of

Michael’s appeal in Burnaby is his strong ties to the community, including building a new home here. He’s been known to support the Burnaby Hospital Foundation, the Burnaby RCMP, the Canucks Autism Network, Canucks Family Education Centre and Canuck Place hospice. Bublé got his start as a teenager, playing gigs whenever he could at nightclubs and weddings. His star rose with regular television appearances on the Vicki Gabereau show, a national broadcast shot in Vancouver. He hasn’t looked back, winning fans both here and beyond as well as 13 Juno Awards. For more information please visit michaelbublé.com.

F

or the third year running, Burnaby Neighbourhood House has won top votes for Best Community Service Organization among our readers. Given the cultural diversity of Burnaby (more than 60 per cent of its population identifies as a visible minority) it’s no wonder that this organization is so popular. The primary purpose of the Burnaby Neighbourhood House is to provide a place for new immigrants to come for information, support

and resources, and a place where people can gather, whether they’re seniors, youth, families or individuals. Its underlying philosophy is that everyone should have equal access to community programs and services, and that such programs should be accessible and affordable to all. Volunteers are what make the Neighbourhood House (with its two locations, one in North Burnaby and the other in South Burnaby) a success. They’re an integral part of the

wide range of events and services offered such as a paint night, cultural sharing dinners, and the annual open house. Volunteers also help with the fundraising, which includes a number of events throughout the year and is highlighted by an annual gala diamond evening.

best place to walk your dog

kkDEER LAKE

B

urnaby is blessed with a wide selection of parks scattered within its borders. According to the city’s website, there are close to 100 neighbourhood parks, 13 district parks, six natural feature parks and 15 ravine parks. Standing head and shoulders above these is Deer Lake Park, which has been chosen for the fifth straight year as Burnaby’s Best Place to Walk your Dog. A draw among park visitors is the extensive network of trails that run through the park, allowing people to take a short jaunt or a longer walk through the park.

Although dogs are not allowed along the banks and picnic areas of Deer Lake Park, they are more than welcome on a leash on the trails and green areas, which makes it a popular spot among dog owners in the city. Deer Lake Park is arguably at the cultural heart of the city being situated near Burnaby City Hall, Shadbolt Centre, Deer Lake Gallery and the Burnaby Village Museum. It also hosts a number of outdoor concerts and events throughout the year, including Symphony in the Park in July and Burnaby Blues & Roots Festival in August.

Hats Off Day on Hastings Street

best annual burnaby festival

kkBURNABY HEIGHT’S HATS OFF DAY

T

he first weekend in June not only marks the end of a long winter and wet spring, it also marks Burnaby’s annual Hats Off Day and Burnaby’s Best Annual Festival according to our readers’ poll. This year’s festivities take place on Saturday, June 2, with a parade taking top billing as a main attraction. As with previous years, Hastings Street from Boundary Road to Gamma Avenue closes

down for the event with pedestrians free to mingle afterward to enjoy and explore the displays and vendor wares. Organized by the Heights Merchant Association, Hats Off Day began in 1989 as a chance for business owners in the North Burnaby area surrounding Hastings Street to doff their hats in appreciation to their customers and residents in the area. It’s now grown to Burnaby’s biggest street

festival, attracting an average of 60,000 people every year. To make the fun-filled activities even more interesting, event organizers plan a different parade theme each year with prizes going to top efforts. Previous years have seen a jungle theme bring out Tarzan and Jane, while this year promises to feature superheroes. In addition to businesses putting out their wares and setting up games, charitable

organizations are also on hand to promote their efforts and do some fundraising, while the Show & Shine brings out the crowds who admire classic and custommade vehicles, trucks and motorcycles. For more Hats Off Day information please visit www.hatsoffday.com or email info@burnabyheights.com or call 604-294-8899.

kkBURNABY MOUNTAIN

I

t’s no surprise that Burnaby’s tallest vantage-point offers some of the city’s best views as it wins top votes in our Best of Burnaby poll. The panoramic views include those of the Burnaby Lake greenery, the growing skyline around Metrotown, the North Shore mountains and, on a clear day, downtown Vancouver. In addition to being on the way to Simon

Fraser University, this park is home to Horizons Restaurant located within the park’s grounds, the photogenic Kamui Mintara totem sculptures, as well as 26 trails covering an area of 28 km. A large number of wildlife also call the mountain home, as blacktail deer, coyotes and bald eagles are commonly seen. Black bears and cougars may be less common but are most

definitely hidden among the woods. Going back in history, the area that is now Burnaby Mountain was first logged in 1903 and later became a popular hiking destination in the 1920s. It was declared a park for recreational use in 1957 and, in 1995, SFU transferred 820 of its acres to the Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area. A year-round destination, Burnaby Mountain offers each

season’s prime views as spring and summer host a bloom of colours from the variety of different flowering plants, including more than 900 bushes in the Centennial Rose Garden. Fall features peak colours as the countless trees bring out their brightest leaves of the year, and winter snows blanket the world in a quiet and beautiful white.
