This is truly a beauty if you like serene water walks and nice scenery. Close to downtown and fine restaurants. Well maintained by the City, this is real treat all year round.

Nice waterfront trail in Burlington. You have a lovely view of Lake Ontario while walking along the trail.

The trail travels along Lake Ontario, on a clear day you can see the CN Tower. If you enjoy biking, walking or running.

Come here to just breath, realign myself or get some peace. For fun with kids bring some snacks as at least over 100 swans reside here and will come hang out with you. Love listening to the trumpet swans. Beautiful views and gorgues little path.

There is lots of parking if you follow Lakeshore toward Hamilton after going through the downtown area. It is free all day, every day. It is very full on weekends, but as I mentioned in my review, the police don't seem to... More
