When you think about parks and recreation boards, you may automatically think of the people who determine when the municipal pools will open, when the city softball season will start, when the recreation centers will be open, and other things.
That’s where you may be surprised when you visit our website. The Parks and Recreation website gives you more information about the City of Burnaby than that which only applies to parks and recreation-related matters. For example, on this website you can find information on the Burnaby Village Museum, the Capilano suspension bridge, and the Gateway casinos. You’ll also be able to find information on the best places to eat or hoist a few glasses, as well as where to go for other types of entertainment. You might even be able to find information on cheap holiday rentals.
By now, you’re probably taking another look to make sure you have typed in the right URL, because you could swear you were visiting a tourism website instead of a municipal board’s website. But, don’t worry. You’re in the right place.
You may be wondering if there is any information included that would actually be considered as parks and recreation-related. There is. You can learn all about the beautiful public parks and gardens, as well as where to go to see some of the Burnaby Eco-Sculptures.
For a parks and recreation board to make such a bold move as featuring “tourist” information on its website takes a lot of nerve. When you think about it, though, it’s not such a bad idea after all. It gives the city a chance to showcase the unique things it has to offer, and doing so on a municipal board’s website helps it stand out among the crowd of website entries that one may have to wade through on a typical travel or tourist website.
