10 Ways to Spend A Spring Day in Burlington
Explore a Waterfall
Any guesses on how many gorgeous waterfalls are in and around Burlington?
Spend Time with Some Animals
Visit the animals at Bronte Creek Provincial Park. Did you know they have roosters, goats, peacocks, cows and more? You can also bird watch and fish during the season.
It’s Always The Right Weather for Skating and Swimming
It’s always a treat to do something “not in season” like ice-skating in May or swimming in March! The City of Burlington has swimming and skating on almost every day at one of their arenas and community centres.
Take Them Out to The Ball Game
Take me out to the ball game…kids are free to attend Burlington Herd baseball games all season long!
Spend an afternoon at LaSalle Park and Marina
LaSalle Park is a beautiful walk for all ages. You can watch the boats as they dock and set off from the marina, wander the water’s edge, and snap pictures of the Trumpeter Swans. Did you know they stick around all winter long?!
Take a hike! Fresh air, wildlife and more are waiting for you at Cherry Hill Gate at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Mount Nemo Conservation Area and beyond!

Skip rocks and hunt for driftwood at Burlington Beach
Wander down to the beachfront and gather up some of the perfectly smooth and flat rocks that are just begging to be skipped along Lake Ontario. Bring a few rocks home with you and decorate them for your front garden, too!
Cook a healthy, family meal together
Check out some new books from the library
With new books arriving almost daily, plus the numerous free or inexpensive workshops and drop in programs they host, the Burlington Public Library should always be a go-to for everyone in Burlington!
Visit a retirement residence and bring them some magazines or crafts
