It's great in the summer. We take our kids all the time and make our way to the beach area and hang out there for a while. Highly recommend it to anyone!

I am fortunate enough to live withing walking distance to the Burlington Waterfront Trail and frequently get down to it for a run. In the mornings the trail is especially nice in the morning as depending on what time you are down there you can watch the sun come up over the lake. Sometimes when I take my kids, they... More

16km of beautiful paved trail at the southern tip of Lake Ontario. The best place to run, ride, roller ski, roller blade, walk or just hang out.

There is a multi level parking facility behind the Esso Station at the foot of Lakeshore & Locust/Brant Street. You can walk over to the Pier and then west all the way to the Cafe at the other end of Spencer Smith Park, where they have ice skating in the winter and remote control boats (bring your own or watch)...

An excellent walk to the liftbridge from Spencer Smith park. Paved and gravel paths shared by walkers, bikes and roller-bladers. Traffic a bit busy sometimes.

I love the Burlington waterfront area so much that my fiance and I moved here a few years ago. The trail is paved and quite wide, so it's great for walking, rollerblading and biking. The best time to go is in early spring when the cherry blossoms bloom. It's quite spectacular!

The very best thing about Burlington is the water front and all the events. You can walk there in 3 mins and enjoy the view. All we need is a great coffee shop inside the park.

A great place for everyone to visit. The pathways are perfect for walking, bikes and strollers. You can go for as long as you want, enjoying the water view, the others enjoying the area and the varieties of activities. A wonderful play area for children, the pond for toy boats in the summer and perfect for skating in the winter.... More

beautiful lakefront park and restaurant and the brand new pier makes this a great place for the many events that take place there. Beautifully made naval monuments are a nice sight.

I love being along the Waterfront Trail along Lake Ontario as it is such a beautiful, relaxing view especially right near the Spencer Smith Park in Burlington. I love it there, seeing the Burlington Skyway bridge and over Lake Ontario towards Hamilton and Stoney Creek.
