  • Great to visit the downtown area. Close to restaurants and ice cream. In the summer great to walk the trail down to the beach. In the winter, the light festival is a must see  more »

  • This is a great place to take your family anytime of the year, but winter has free skating on the Rotary pond and a night light display. Rib fest and Sound of music events occur here during the summer, they are hugely popular. They also added a food truck festival as well. OPP detachment and Jo Brant hospital located nearby, the area is safe and often patrolled by police. There is also a fancy restaurant on site for folks who love a lake view dinner option.
  • Great waterfront park for Burlington, it links up to walking trails that take you along the beaches of Lake Ontario. They have the Rotary pond open for skating during the winter, along with a light display. During summer time, there are picnic areas open for use along the beach, summer events, like 'Sound of Music' and you can swim, walk the pier, cycle, or practice photography. Highly recommend.
  • What a beautiful place to take a walk, especially at night. The pathways are paved and wide, perfect for many people. The pier is nice to walk down, and look over the shoreline. Good for kids - there is a large playground and in the summer a splash pad. In the winter, there is a free public skating area. There is some parking, but the lots aren't too big (pay parking). You can park nearby on the side streets for free if you'd like.
  • This majestic waterfront park is a great place to see the wonderful festivals burlington has to offer such as the festival of lights in the winter and the sound of music Canada's largest free music festival. In the summer. Quite the amazing park with an excellent looking pier.
  • Great service during Sunday brunch. Food not spectacular but is good quality for the price. Not an intimate setting for those seeking quiet. ....more like a cafeteria noise level. Had fun nonetheless.
