Geography of Burlington
Burlington, Ontario is located within the Halton region, on the western shores of Lake Ontario. While Burlington is an entirely self-sufficient city, it is loosely considered part of the Greater Toronto Area, and is a part of the Hamilton Census. Neighbouring communities include Oakville, Hamilton, Milton, Dundas, Ancaster, Stoney Creek, and of course Toronto, Mississauga, and Etobicoke. There is a huge amount of green space both in and around the City of Burlington. Its close proximity to Lake Ontario moderates harsh winter temperatures. As a result, Burlington enjoys milder winters and a plethora of flora and fauna unique to the immediate area!

Nature lovers spend their weekends strolling the 20 kilometres of waterfront trails, or stopping to smell the roses at the world famous Royal Botanical Gardens. Other nature destinations include Bronte Creek Provincial Park and the enormous Spencer Smith Park. The Bruce Trail, which follows the Niagara Escarpment (a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve), also traces through the area.
Those who are looking to soak up a little bit of nostalgic culture can look forward to the Sound of Music Festival that takes place every June. Other annual cultural events include the Art in the Park festival, Lakeside Festival of Lights, and of course, the finger licking good Ribfest (the largest in Canada)!
