A go to place when I need to clear my head. It's hard to believe that this is across from the dirty old steel mills of Hamilton. Great place to visit at night when they are all lit up. A nice walk along the shore...More

The Burlington waterfront park and trail has great views, is kept incredibly clean and had such beautiful landscaping with lovely flowers. It was relaxing and a pleasure to take in a walk and enjoy the scenery.

Trail is wonderful and a great place for any type of walk or exercise. Many walkers, runners, and bicycle riders join you when you are there.

Walking along the waterfront with the water beside you is a soothing experience. There were many people doing the same thing, highly recommend this for a nice way to spend some time in Burlington

The City of Toronto could take a lesson from Burlington on how to create a beautiful waterfront easily accessible to all. Especially like the walkway along the lakefront and the separate paved trail for bicycles. Very attractive view on the Burlington Skyway bridge and long...More

Title is pretty literal, it's got some nice views and is a nice, fairly short, very easy (minimal incline/decline/ rocky walkways) little trail along the water. Parking is spaced out at certain points and there are beverage/food stops in downtown Burlington, which are easily accessible....More

Fabulous location to wander for a couple of hours. The trail extends for a long time past the end of the visible area, so keep going and find the wonders of the trail

What a nice amenity for the city, it's funny because you don't even notice it going over the Burlington bridge. The pier is modern with a nice little beach area. Cool playground. Nice clean bike trail. Nice to know about this beautiful area.
