Beautiful marina walk way with some wonderful views. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area (try the Gelataria for some great Italian gelato). Our younger kids love the play area and the little splash area too. Good fun to be had for all ages. Local food at the food area has got some good food at very reasonable... More

A wonderful newly finished waterfront. A great place to walk, sit and relax. Very clean and not crowded during the week. Lots of restaurants around. Enjoyed a marvellous afternoon with friends in this area.

Good for a stroll or bike ride. It is however a bit crowded on weekends. Within walking distances to several good restaurants nearby, so good for a after-meal walk too.

Very nice strolling the waterfront trails and onto the beach areas. Summer is busy with the kids out of school and lots of families. Amenities such as bathrooms along the way, water play area in Spencer Smith Park, places to buy food and drink. Just lovely sitting on benches taking in the sights of the lake and people watching, and... More

This waterfront trail can be whatever it is you need. A relaxed stroll or a brisk walk or run. Have done this walk before sunset as well as at dusk. One can enjoy the late evening breezes walking along a well defined path.

Gorgeous, maintained walking path, awesome playground, beautiful views from the pier, a water play feature all draw a very diverse population. A breath of fresh air and hope for the community

The downtown Burlington trail and waterfront is a great place to go with friends, family, couples and much to do. You can ride your bike, rollerblade, walk or run and the scenery is fantastic. There are nice restaurants close by and the new pier is a nice addition to check out. Would highly recommend to all interested.

The trails along the waterfront were clean and refreshing. Lots of lights, a waterfront pond with small remote control boats, washroom located along the path, people walking, riding bikes, boarding, along the way, picnic areas. Great.

The Burlington Waterfront trail is just perfect for that early morning ride! As you spin along the flat unobstructed trail you can watch the spectacular sunrise on Lake Ontario. The trail is kept clean and it is wide enough to accommodate the variety of sports enthusiasts. Perfect for walkers, roller blades, bikers and wheelchair accessible. Loads of room for everyone...
