The City of Burlington, consistently ranked as one of Canada’s most liveable cities, is home to more than 207,000 residents. The south-end of Burlington is situated on the picturesque shores of Lake Ontario overlooking Burlington Bay, while the majestic Niagara Escarpment provides the backdrop for the mostly rural north part of Burlington. Burlington is strategically located right in the middle of the “Golden Horseshoe”, which encompasses the prosperous, urbanized area, between Oshawa and St. Catharines.
Burlington has all the amenities you would expect from a large city. It has a lively waterfront with a pier, promenade and parks. Downtown Burlington has a bustling shopping district and is home to the Burlington Performing Arts Centre and the Art Gallery of Burlington. Burlington’s Central Park provides a variety of recreational opportunities for all ages. The Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital is also located in the downtown core. At the north end of Burlington there are numerous opportunities to get outside and explore nature, such as cycling and hiking trails, rock climbing and several golf courses in the area.
The housing mix is varied and includes everything from waterfront condominiums to expansive country estates. Burlington is an excellent choice for commuters with easy access to 400 series highways, as well as a handful of GO Transit train and bus stations.
