Story and Photos by

LEE A. WOOD

The heritage entrance to Central Park is on Kingsway St. On the North end of the park.

However, the official address of the park is 3883 Imperial St.

Which is actually on the South end of the park.

And that is where you will find the entrance to the parking lot for; the club house for BAMM, the Pitch and Putt, and the Lower Pond - 3883 Imperial St.

BURNABY ASSOCIATION OF MARINE MODELLERS

Just a few feet to the South East of the small lake in Burnaby's Central Park is a small wooden building, mostly unnoticed by persons strolling through the park.
As well as public washrooms, the building, on the Eastern end contains offices and rentals for the pitch and putt - Central Park Pitch & Putt .
The Western end of the building is the headquarters for the radio controlled model boat club.
BAMM (Burnaby Association Of Marine Modellers), as it is officially know, is a group of people who love to build and +/ or operate radio controlled water craft of various types and styles.
This group meets at the pond on Wednesday or Sunday mornings, depending on the weather.
As well, throughout the year, they hold regattas.
More details can be found on their website - http://www.bammrc.com .
(According to the map of Burnaby the lake is called `The Lower Pond'.)
Here are a few pictures I took on a sunny Sunday morning.
