Recreation

Burlington Waterfront Trail

A short   drive from the venue will take you straight to a serene trail by the waterfront. Along the trail are many scenic spots, perfect for pictures. Although there will be other pedestrians, you will not find the destination overwhelmingly crowded. When it’s warm, you’ll often find people jogging, walking their dogs, rollerblading, biking, and more. The trail will give you a beautiful view across Lake Ontario. 

Art Gallery of Burlington - 1333 Lakeshore Rd, Burlington, ON L7S 1A9

13 minutes away from the venue gives you an opportunity to check out Burlington’s art gallery. It will serve your craving for some artistic works, especially with its numerous exhibitions. You can view their website to find upcoming and past exhibitions. Aside from the array of art, there is also a gift shop and a cafe. On top of this, it is located by Lake Ontario, which can be closely viewed by the waterfront trail. The gallery is also conveniently by Spencer’s at the Waterfront, in the case that you choose to dine there (you can find more information about this restaurant in the chart above). 

Brant Street Pier - 1400 Lakeshore Rd, Burlington, ON L7S 1Y2

This pier is 137 meters over Lake Ontario, making it worthwhile to visit. This pier is relatively new and is a part of the revival of Downtown Burlington. During the year, there are various events that take place. If you are already taking a stroll along the Burlington Waterfront Trail, you might come across the pier, as it is accessible by the trail. Visitors often come by for beautiful scenic pictures and surroundings. This spot is approximately 12 minutes away from the BAASS Connect Burlington venue. At night, there is a colourfully lit beacon. 

Mount Nemo Conservation Area - 5317 Guelph Line, Burlington, ON L7P 0A5

A drive of 16 minutes away will take you to Mount Nemo Conservation Area. Regardless of the season, visits are often for the great hiking trails and views. Note that there are hikes for everyone- reviews mention that even the short hikes are well received for its beautiful view from the top. This spot is also popular in the winter when the forest is lined with snow. There is a fee to enter the park, but this small fee provides you with access to all Halton Parks during the day.
