The park lies south of Garibaldi Park, west of Pitt Lake and Pitt River and extends south to include Burke Mountain in Coquitlam. Nearby communities include Coquitlam and Maple Ridge.
Burke Mountain is accessible by using old logging roads and trails from the Port Coquitlam and the District Hunting and Fishing Club at the end of Harper Road to Munro and Dennett lakes and Burke Ridge. This area is also accessible via Coast Meridian Road, Apel Drive (which becomes Victoria Drive), and Quarry Road.
Widgeon Slough and Widgeon Valley are accessible by boat. Canoes or kayaks can be launched from Grant Narrows at the south end of Pitt Lake, and paddled through Widgeon Slough. An old logging road leads hikers up the lower valley where a trail branches off for Widgeon Lake.
West Pitt Lake, including DeBeck Valley, is accessible by boat. An old logging road extends from the mouth of the creek to a point approximately one quarter of the way up the valley. An intermittent trail leads over the pass to Boise Valley.
From the east, access to Boise Valley and Pinecone Lake is via boat to the north end of Pitt Lake, and then by logging road (16 km and 30 km respectively) to the trailhead leading through the main valley. From the west, logging roads lead to the park through the Mamquam and Indian River valleys.
