This trail runs from Downtown Burlington along the shores of Lake Ontario to Hamilton. In the winter, it can be quite chilly with the winds coming off the water - very refreshing though. In summer, it is very busy with peopling walking, biking or roller- blading. Nice place to get some exercise and soak up some natural beauty.

Love biking down this trail - can do a decent long ride down to Stoney Creek all on wide well made paths so easy to just mount up and go.

A well kept park with good paths. Especially liked the Christmas lights. Enjoyed watching the skaters on the frozen swimming pool and Emma's Bar at the end of the walk

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...
