On the waterfront

Waterfront Trail sign

Burlington is very fortunate to enjoy a beautiful, accessible and long waterfront.

The entire Waterfront Trail system spans 740 kilometres in length, from Niagara-on-the-Lake in the west to Brockville in the east. Our part comprises 23 kilometres.

Did you know there are 8 public parks along Burlington’s Waterfront Trail?

That impressive number includes Ward 4’s Port Nelson Park, Sioux Lookout Park (where this photo was taken) and Paletta Lakefront Park.

Ria and I were married in Paletta, so it’s my personal favorite. However, I increasingly find myself drawn to Sioux Lookout. It’s usually quiet and always calming to sit on a bench there – with Lake Ontario stretching out in front of you, as far as the eye can see.

A momentary oasis to relax by, and reflect on life and living. I might even come up with the subject for my next blog.
