Burnie Park boasts rolling green hills, trees of many species, a rose garden, rhododendrons, a waterfall, a music shell, a memorial cenotaph, a fire-fighting demonstration track, playgrounds, barbecues and picnic area, accessible playground and toilet facilities are all featured within a 1.5km drive of the city centre, at Burnie Park.
Located on the Bass Highway just west of the city centre, overlooking West Park Oval, Makers' Workshop and Bass Strait, it is arguably one of the prettiest parks in Tasmania. Burnie Park is divided by a natural waterway flowing over Oldaker Falls which can be viewed at the top of a short walking trail, and flows into a small pond with a raft of ducks.
This recreational precinct also includes the adjacent West Park, providing facilities for cricket and football, field sports, track cycling, woodcutting and social activities.
Burnie Park is also home to the city's oldest Colonial-era building, the Burnie Inn.
The Park features a developed landscape, with numerous exotic and native trees and abundant lawns.
The Park is used annually for events such as the Kids in the Park Easter event, Carols by Candlelight, Teddy Bears' Picnic, Anzac Day and Remembrance Day services, and various community events.
The Burnie Park is easily accessible to all, including a Liberty Swing for those who use a wheelchair to enjoy.
