Shadbolt Centre for the Performing Arts

The community facility was built in 1995 to honor the renowned artist of Jack Shadbolt and writer Doris Shadbolt. The centre offers two theatres, six studios, rehearsal rooms, meeting rooms, pottery studios and an art shop. The architecture was built to capture the beautiful natural landscape of Deer Lake Park located in Burnaby.

Studio 103 has a 120-banquet capacity with access to Deer Lake Park, a gas fireplace, and a beautiful park view. The two-storey Atrium has a cathedral style ceiling of Douglas fir, stonework walls, and 25-foot windows. Both the Atrium and Park View Lounge can host up to 250 people for a banquet.

Simon Fraser University

Named after explorer Simon Fraser, SFU opened on September 9, 1965. Taking only 30 months to grow from the idea stage into an almost-completed campus with 2,500 students it was dubbed the “Instant University”.

Just over 40 years later SFU has over 25,000 students and 90,000 alumni, and more than 700 tenure-track faculty. The original campus has grown into three vibrant campuses in Burnaby, Vancouver and Surrey and SFU’s reputation has grown into one of innovative teaching, research, and community outreach.

Burnaby Village Museum

Built as a memorial to British Columbia’s centennial in 1958, this four-hectare (10-acre) open-air museum is a recreation of an early 1900s community. Among its 30 buildings and outdoor scenes are a schoolhouse, blacksmith’s shop, dentist’s office and a real working theatre. It also has an operational ice cream parlour but the main attraction is a restored 1912 carousel.

Bill Copeland Sports Centre

The Bill Copeland Sports Centre is a state-of-the-art facility that has been hailed as a model for other community sports centres. Spacious, stylish and filled with natural light, it defies the usual image we have of a hockey arena. That’s because it’s much more than an arena. Visitors are struck by the executive-style appointments, the elegant interior design and the versatility of the building.

The NHL regulation ice rink is lined with windows and features retractable seats and removable boards that transform it into a convention and trade show space. The centre is also connected to Burnaby Lake Arena so additional space is only steps away. The exceptional acoustic, lighting and sound systems make it ideal not only for large sporting events but also for concerts and graduation ceremonies. Seminar rooms that can accommodate both small and large gatherings are equipped with everything you need for a productive meeting.

The sports centre is the anchor for the developing Burnaby Lake Sports Complex, already the site of playing fields, tennis courts, archery, rowing and equestrian facilities, an indoor pool and jogging track.

Burnaby Art Gallery

Burnaby Art Gallery is dedicated to presenting a variety of exhibitions and events in the galleries of the Burnaby Art Gallery and throughout the community. Services include educational programs for children, adults and seniors, community projects and exhibitions in schools, recreation facilities and community centres.

Lively school programs enhance and support the exhibitions in order to develop visual and cultural literacy within our community. Public programs are also designed to enrich the experience of the visitor as it relates to each exhibition. Talks and workshops are held in conjunction with some of the exhibitions, with artists and invited guests discussing issues surrounding the subject of the artworks.
