Enjoy the beautiful views of the Waterfront in Downtown Burlington!
Residents at our 1275 Elgin Street building love the park and lakeside views! If you are new to the area, Park Property Management Inc. would like to introduce you to a beautiful destination in Downtown Burlington.
Spencer Smith Park has a bit of everything on the shores of Lake Ontario! At the southeast side of the park, you'll find shaded benches, concrete steps overlooking the lake, and even coin-operated binoculars to view the water or incoming boats.
The Waterfront Trail runs through the park and leads you from one area to the next. Dine with a view at Spencer's at The Waterfront or take a break by the Rotary Centennial Pond, a reflective pool that changes to an ice rink during the winter months.
Discovery Landing is a beautiful 14,200 square foot building at the centre of the park. Here you can grab a quick a bite to eat, visit the Observatory to appreciate the panoramic view of the Burlington Bay, or weather watch through the floor to ceiling windows.
Next door is Burlington's newest splashpad, the Dofasco Waterjet and playground. Thirty jets spray water intermittently for children of all ages, while parents watch from the shady spots surrounding the park. There is also a full playground with plenty for kids to enjoy.
The Brant Street Pier is a 137 metre pier extending over Lake Ontario with benches and many spots to stop for unobstructed views. There is a small sandy patch next to the pier which is perfect for dipping your toes into the water after a walk, but check the water quality before swimming.
When you want to spend the day at the beach, head to Beachway Park. This long stretch of sand is a great place to relax, build sandcastles, swim, or get on the water with your kayak, canoe, or paddle board. Additionally, The Snack Shack, open May through September, is the perfect place to stop in for lunch or a cool treat on the way home.
The Waterfront in Downtown Burlington is a great place to explore. If you are looking to live minutes from this unique destination, view our 1275 Elgin St property today!
