A Bit about…. Burlington

A Bit about…. Burlington

If you are considering a move to Burlington, Ontario, you should know it’s a great place to raise kids. According to Money Sense magazine, Burlington ranks #2 in its Best Place to Raise Kids list for 2012.

Burlington is located in the Halton Region on western edge of Lake Ontario. The city is considered part of the Greater Toronto Area, and is also included in the Hamilton Metropolitan area. Burlington is clearly part of the Niagara Escarpment as it is located near the geographic centre of the Golden Horseshoe. The Golden Horseshoe is home to nearly 8 million people collectively.

Burlington is the place you can find such attractions as Spencer Smith Park, the Sound of Music Festival, Canada’s Largest Ribfest and the Burlington Art Centre. No matter your interest, Burlington offers something for you.

Burlington is a favorite of nature lovers and bird watchers thanks to the Royal Botanical Gardens near the Hamilton border. Many area hikers enjoy the Iroquoian section of the Bruce Trail located in the Burlington area.

The central urban area of Burlington is found south of the Parkway Belt and Highway 407. Turning north, the Aldershot area is a primarily agriculture area with rural residential and conservation land. Lake Ontario, the Niagara Escarpment, and the sloping plain between the lake and the Escarpment compose the Burlington land area. Although the port activity is an important part of Burlington’s history, the city is no longer an active port; area sailing vessels moor at a more than 200 slip marina in LaSalle Park are used for recreational purposes.
