This is a clean walk at the end of downtown, right by the water. You will see people out during the day as well as nights, couples, families, bladders, cyclists, people waking their dog(s), children playing in the park area, it has a slight European feel. It makes the city feel that it is alive with activity. It is a... More

Nice flat walk along the shore of Lake Ontario with views back to Toronto and to Hamilton. Interesting tree carvings along route.

Whether you are cycling or walking this trail is great. Relatively flat and smooth. Enjoy it while you can I believe that Burlington is planning to make their waterfront even better, so I imagine construction will spoil things for a while once they start - although I'm not certain of the timing for the improvements.

Burlington has a beautiful waterfront, I got some really great pictures. There was lots of wildlife to see, especially birds.

This waterfront is one of the best ones that can be visited on lake Ontario. It is very relaxing and one can use the trail for an excellent hike. The water is also very clean.

Burlington should be very proud of its waterfront. There is an art gallery right there, a spash park for the kids, a lovely restaurant, coffee shops and fine dining all along the lakeshore. The waterfront trail itself is wonderful. It is great for all ages and physical abilities. I myself, first did the trail on my electric scooter and it... More

This is a nice little walk along the waterfront of Burlington. It is also a nice area as it is in the downtown core of the city with plenty of quaint shops and cafes. The walk itself is not very long if you want to stay in that area, but is nice for a stroll. There are a couple lookout... More

A very nice trail suitable for pretty much anyone. Clean and safe it's a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon or any afternoon for that matter.

The trail is nice and by the water. You can see the Skyway and play with the geese and ducks (ok you can't play with them but you can see them). I like geese and ducks. There is a grassy area but not nearly enough trees to provide adequate shade. I climbed up the lookout thingy but I'm afraid of... More
