Burlington, Ont.—June 4, 2021— Burlington’s Beachway is open for use and ready for beach-goers. Residents are reminded that the water is unsupervised (no lifeguards) and are asked to continue to follow all Provincial restrictions and public health guidance, so we can all enjoy the summer safely.

About the Beachway

It’s the place where Burlington comes to enjoy sun, sand and scenery. With 6.8 acres of park space and two kilometres of lakeside trails, an outdoor pavilion and playground, there is plenty to do and see at The Beachway. For the weekend warrior or adventure seeker there are many active options – cycling, running, rollerblading and lake swimming. The Beachway is the perfect spot for a quiet stroll along a picturesque shore; build sandcastles, bird watch or simply take in the views and bask in an inspirational sunrise or golden sunsets.

Parking at the Beachway

Visitors to the beach must now pay for parking on weekends until Sept. 25, 2021. It is an hourly rate of $2.50 or a daily flat rate of $20. Users can scan the QR Code or download the HonkMobile app. There is a transaction fee of $0.35 for each payment. Dashboard tickets are not needed as every payment is linked to a license plate number. For more information, visit our Paid Parking and Reservations page.

Free parking passes are available to Halton residents.

The City is working with the Trans-Northern Pipeline to allow for some urgent work that needs to be carried out along Lakeshore Road. The work is near the drop-off area in the parking lot but visitors are still able to access this area. Please follow @CityBurlington on Facebook or Twitter in the event that the drop-off area needs to be relocated to accommodate this work.

Fires Are Not Permitted

It is important to note that fires, no matter how small, are not allowed on the beach or anywhere within the City’s urban boundary. For more information, visit burlington.ca/openairburning.

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
