Burlington Parks

From the shoreline of Lake Ontario to the escarpment north of the city, there are so many beautiful destinations in Burlington that are perfect for enjoying the spring season! 

Burlington residents will want to visit Kerncliff Park's Ian Reid Side Trail. Named in honour of Mr. Reid's and his 50+ year contribution to the Iroquoia Bruce Trail Club, the park is located at the site of the old Nelson Quarry and ascends into the Bruce Trail. It's a truly beautiful spot for novice to intermediate hikers to explore and discover. 

Early spring is a great time to head to the Waterfront Trail all along the waterfront in Burlington. Stroll towards the Skyway Bridge and take in the gorgeous views! Take your shoes off and curl your toes in the sand after a taxing afternoon as you walk the shoreline back towards downtown Burlington.

Hidden Valley Park is another great spot for families as the temperature rises, with its splash pad and playground. It is also home to the Burlington Model Railway Club. Hidden Valley Park offers dense nature trails and wetlands abundant with wildlife so don't forget your camera! Twist and wind your way around Hidden Valley before ascending into Hendrie Valley and The Royal Botanical Gardens.

Lowville Park at 6207 Lowville Park Road north on Guelph Line is a scenic green space for Burlington residents who are craving an outdoor adventure. This park features a beautiful suspension iron bridge, stone room schoolhouse and playground.

Sioux Lookout Park is a compact park off Lakeshore Road that offers a small circuit and shoreline viewing. The pea gravel beach, benches and one-of-a-kind views provide a relaxing setting for enjoying the spring weather.
