See and Do

Ireland House at Oakridge Farm by Paul Sparrow

Located on the shores of Lake Ontario in the heart of Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe, Burlington is close to the urban buzz of Toronto, yet surrounded by the tranquil beauty of parks and gardens. Our city offers visitors a full spectrum of activities, from scaling the heights of the Niagara escarpment to catching trophy sized salmon in a great lake. There’s culture, history, festivals and fun all year round in this safe and friendly community.

For Naturalists & Adventurers 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. Enjoy a walk along the Waterfront Trail and Brant Street Pier (open later this year), have a picnic or just relax and enjoy the view. You will see all kinds of boating activity, from lake freighters and sailboats to kayaks and wind surfers. There are thousands of acres of parks and conservation areas offering year round adventures. 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. For a naturally occurring oddity, visit one of the only magnetic hills in Canada, on a rural section of King Rd. 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.

A World Famous Royal Garden: Named one of the top ten gardens in the world, the Royal Botanical Gardens is Canada’s only royal 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, peonies and irises in the spring. In summer months, there is an international sculpture show in the gardens along with special events, plant sales, nature walks, gardening and painting workshops. There’s even geocaching 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.

16


Find Adventure at Our Doorstep: Kelso/Glen Eden, Mountsberg, Crawford Lake, Hilton Falls, Rattlesnake Point and Mount Nemo Conservation areas offer rugged park experiences, such as hiking, swimming, skiing and 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 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, a UNESCO-designated World Biosphere Reserve, to hike the pathways created hundreds of years ago along the Iroquoia portion of the Bruce Trail.

City View Park

by Tourism Burlington

Play in Our Parks:

Within the city, there are numerous community parks that are alive with activities and attractions. Enjoy the Downtown Waterfront on the shores of Lake Ontario where the Rotary Centennial Pond serves as a reflecting pool 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 at 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, Hidden Valley 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 Canadian labyrinths in a public space that is wheelchair accessible.

Cycling

Start Spinning Your Wheels Burlington and area is a wonderful place to cycle in all seasons with scenic rural roads, picturesque waterfront trails and historic downtown routes. Some of our major attractions such as the Royal Botanical Gardens, Bronte Creek Provincial Park and Conservation Halton also have an extensive trail network at their locations and many are part of the Welcome Cyclist network. Why not cycle to some of the Chocolate Trail locations and enjoy a treat while you are exercising!

There are frequent art exhibits, as well as exceptional shopping in 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. The new Burlington Performing Arts Centre brings big name shows to the city plus showcases community activities. Check out the events calendar at burlingtonpac.ca for performance details. In the summer, the city comes alive with music as the host of several major outdoor music festivals. During the Sound of Music, streets are closed to traffic and every corner becomes a venue for bands. There’s also Music in the Park concerts to enjoy throughout the summer, featuring local musicians, at one of the many beautiful outdoor parks or 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.

Culinary Experiences: The Chocolate Trail The Burlington Chocolate Trail is the perfect outlet for the chocoholic in you.

Pick up your selfguided trail map at Tourism Burlington or any of our participating chocolate trail merchants, download it online at burlingtonchocolatetrail.ca or view it on your Smartphone.

Watch History Come 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 exhibit space and houses more than 10,000 artifacts. Stroll the historic streets of downtown Burlington to discover some of its first homes, and churches dating back to the late 1800s. A Walking Tour of Burlington Downtown brochure is available from the Visitor Information Centre or on our website. 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. 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, 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. 16
