DISCOVER Burlington Located on the shores of Lake Ontario in the heart of Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe, Burlington is a unique city. Close to the urban buzz of Toronto, yet surrounded by the tranquil beauty of parks and gardens, this city on the water offers visitors a full spectrum of activities, from scaling the heights of the Niagara escarpment to watching some of the best lakeside sunrises in the province. There’s culture, history, festivals and fun all year round in this safe and friendly city.

A NaturAL BeAUTY The heart of Burlington is made up of tree-lined streets and carefully tended gardens, but that is just the beginning of the area’s natural attractions. Visit the waterfront for a picnic, or to enjoy a walk along the Waterfront Trail, or spend some time enjoying the view. You’ll see all kinds of boating activity, from lake freighters and sailboats to kayaks and wind surfers. Just a short distance from the downtown are thousands of acres of parks and conservation areas offering year round adventures. Each has a unique character, whether it is a focus on First Nations’ history, animal exhibits, or activities like swimming, fishing and boating. Bird watching is a distinctly rewarding experience here, with trumpeter swans, bald eagles, pelicans, great horned owls and several endangered birds making their homes in the parks and along the water’s edge. The western end of Lake Ontario and the escarpment regularly attract over 150 species of birds. For a naturally occurring oddity, visit one of the only magnetic hills in Canada, on a rural section of King Road.

Rugged Adventure: At Bronte Creek Provincial Park, children can enjoy the play barn as well as watch the farm animals up close. There’s a historically preserved farmhouse where you can experience life as it would have been live in the late 1800’s. Swimming, hiking the trails or learning about wildlife are all activities that visitors can enjoy. Kelso/ Glen Eden, Mountsberg, Crawford Lake, Hilton Falls, Rattlesnake Point and Mount Nemo Conservation areas also offer rugged park experiences, such as hiking, swimming and


Urban Parks: Within the city, Burlington has wisely preserved its green spaces. There

are numerous community parks that are alive with activities and attractions. Visit the Waterfront Park and its Discovery Landing, where visitors can enjoy a pool that serves as a reflecting pond and miniature sailboat space in summer, and a skating rink in winter. The Dofasco Waterjet Park is the ideal place for children to play on hot summer days, and the elegant Spencer’s on the Waterfront provides fine dining with a view. Visit Paletta Mansion and Lakefront Park to experience a 14-acre heritage estate on the lake. At LaSalle Park, you can feed the ducks and trumpeter swans. There are excellent picnicking opportunities at LaSalle or Lowville Parks and other parks offer hiking trails, fishing, playgrounds, and winter activities. For a more contemplative experience, walk the Central Park Labyrinth, one of the first labyrinths in a public space that is wheelchair accessible in Canada.

wh at to SEE & DO

fishing, and each reflects a distinct character through its special attractions. Visit an authentically reconstructed native village at Crawford Lake, or sleep under the stars at Kelso. Do an Owl Prowl or a nighttime Wolf Howl, learn about raptors and birds of prey or just enjoy the quiet serenity of trees and rolling hills. For a truly unique adventure, head to the Niagara Escarpment to hike the pathways created hundreds of years ago along the Iroquoia portion of the Bruce Trail. Some of the best hiking in the world can be done along these local sections of the Bruce Trail and the Niagara Escarpment, which is a UNESCOdesignated World Biosphere Reserve, as well as along the Waterfront Trail that skirts the northern shore of Lake Ontario.

A World Famous Royal Garden Named one of the top ten gardens in the world, the Royal Botanical Gardens is Canada’s only royal garden, and its largest botanical garden. Visitors come from around the world to see the spectacular collection of lilacs (the world’s largest), the magnificent rose gardens and the masses of tulips and irises in the Spring. In summer months, you can picnic in paradise and painters at easels are a frequent sight. The gardens run special events, plant sales, nature walks, gardening classes and painting workshops. There’s even geo-caching activities for both children and adults. The shop in the garden’s centre is a good place to find special one-of-a-kind gifts.

Arts and Culture Flourish Arts matter in Burlington, so if your interests lie in the artistic realm, you’ll find much to please you in the vibrant cultural scene in Burlington. A visit to the Burlington Art Centre will introduce you to local, national and international artists whose work is featured here. The centre is the home to Canada’s foremost collection of contemporary Canadian ceramics. There are frequent art exhibits, as well as exceptional shopping in Art Etc., the gallery shop where you can buy juried art created by well known artists. Spend some time in the indoor conservatory, or enjoy a snack at the Café. The Artists Walk in historic Village Square offers unique items created by Canadian artisans, and many small art galleries offer a wide range of works. If the play’s the thing for you, Burlington’s talented local theatrical groups are on-stage with productions throughout the year. Check out the events calendar for details. In the summer, Burlington swings. The city comes alive with music as the host of several major outdoor music festivals. During the Sound of Music Festival, streets are closed to traffic and every corner becomes a venue for singers, guitar players and bands. New this year, the Country and Blues BBQ will attract talent to its lakeside stage. There’s also free Music in the Park concerts to enjoy throughout the summer, featuring local musicians, such as Burlington’s own Teen Tour Band, at one of the many beautiful outdoor locations and at the Royal Botanical Gardens. For something completely different, visit the Crossroads Centre, where cutting-edge broadcast technology mixes with spiritual outreach. This state-of-the-art facility boasts one of the finest television production centres in the world, a beautiful chapel, and is the production headquarters for 100 Huntley Street.

History Comes Alive

One of the earliest areas of Ontario to be settled, Burlington has a vibrant history and preserves it in both its museums and historic streets. Take a journey into the past at the Joseph Brant Museum, a replica of the home of one of Canada’s most colourful heroes. Captain Joseph Brant was an aboriginal leader and United Empire Loyalist who helped the British fight in the American Revolutionary War. He built his home on land he was granted by King George III, just a few hundred yards south-west of the present day museum. The museum has more than 2,200 sq. ft. of exhibit space and houses more than 10,000 artifacts. Stroll the historic streets of downtown Burlington to Ireland House >Museums of Burlington discover some of its first homes, dating back to the late 1800s. A Walking Tour of Burlington Downtown brochure is available from the Visitor Information Centre or on our website for your self-guided adventure. Travel through three distinct time periods with a visit to Ireland House at Oakridge Farm, (circa 1835-1837), a living history museum and 3.68 acres of woodland, gardens, a potting shed, cottage/drive shed, and picnic areas. Experience the lives lived in the house in the 1850s, 1890s and 1920s by the Ireland Family and try a taste of fresh bread baked in the hearth by a costumed interpreter. Tours of the property, living historical demonstrations, special events and educational programs are offered. North of the city you can find the Halton Region Museum, with its fascinating and approachable display of artifacts that tell the story of the early days of Halton. Antique quilts, shadow boxes that display ornate wreaths made entirely of human hair, old implements and authentic clothing bring history to real life. Be sure to plan a visit to the Streetcar & Electric Railway Museum where you can take a ride and explore the 1912 Grand Trunk railway station. The Burlington Historical Society has published a number of interesting books on the area which are available for purchase at our Visitor centre.
