Bridgeway Street, near New Brighton Park. This place is noisy, it’s like an enormous generator that’s always on, but the rain was so heavy on the roof last night that it drowned out the industrial sounds. To the east of here is the entrance to a trail that follows Burrard Inlet. Follow it for a few minutes and you’ll walk under the Ironworkers’ Memorial Bridge, and over the train bridge right beside it (from which the tracks plunge into a tunnel that goes south underneath North Burnaby). Then there’s a rickety two-story treehouse you can climb into, and if you want you can just keep on walking all the way to Willingdon.
