I've been coming here quite often the past few weeks to take pictures of the sunset and the beautiful frozen lake. It's quite nice and peaceful in the winter months, with the occasional dog walkers and elderly couples who also uses the trail. It's a shame that the trail and pier are not maintained during the winter months, but I... More

If you've never walked along the Burlington waterfront, it's a must while in the city. The view across Lake Ontario on a sunny day or even a cold winter day is breathtaking. Once done you can sit for a coffee or enjoy the many fantastic dinning experiences Burlington has to offer, in all price ranges.

It's a beautiful trail along the waterfront, with the water on one side and the natural hills of the park on the other. It's popular with all, and the kids love the chance to feed to chipmunks right out of their hand and the birds land on your hand to eat from your palm. It's calming and a good place... More

This is my favorite place in Burlington. It is perfect any time of year. In the winter to watch the ice build up on the street lights and the railings is a work of art in itself. And a stroll while viewing the festival of lights and sipping hot cocoa is wonderful. The summer offers a whole different delight with... More

The waterfront in downtown Burlington is worth a daily visit, at the least because it is always changing. This week, because of the snow coming in from the east, the rollers were enormous, and there was a large area of ice chunks which were rolling up and down with the waves in an endless show of force which made me...

The Burlington Waterfront Trail is a nice east stroll along the Burlington waterfront. Often there are buskers and arts events happening. Some people swim in the small beach areas. It starts at the foot of Brant St. and Lakeshore and go west along the shore. Caution to those walking and cycling because those groups often share the same trail so... More

A lovely short walk along the waterfront in Burlington is always a pleasure. Down by the beach end, parking is always horrific and the parking enforcement officers are always out in full force issuing tickets so I would always recommend parking in town and walking from one end to the other and back again. There are a few nice little... More
