Here are our picks from the map:

Central Park


The popular eco-sculpture, dragster, at B.C.'s oldest park, Central Park, transforms into a merry sight with winter greenery, leaves, branches, pinecones and lights — dreamed up by a team of local artists. 

A stroll across the trail will send you towards a more festive sight with brightly lit trees.


Willingdon Linear Park 


The same popular eco-sculpture, carriage, at Willingdon Linear Park gets the Christmas treatment from local artists. 

Beach at Deer Lake


Five trees adorned with lights bringing a gentle magical glow to Deer Lake. 

Tommy Douglas Library


For the festive season, the library is illuminated with snowy white globes of light and fairy lights, cascading into a waterfall from the roof.

Heritage Village Museum 


Burnaby Village Museum is about to turn into a 10-acre Christmas town — with all the bells and whistles — from Nov. 26 to Jan. 2.
