Halton Region, in partnership with the City of Burlington, is in the process of implementing the Burlington Beach Regional Waterfront Park Master Plan.
 

Implementing the Waterfront Park Master Plan

Halton Regional Council approved a Burlington Beach Regional Waterfront Park Master Plan on May 20, 2015. Halton Region, in partnership with the City of Burlington, is now implementing the approved Master Plan. This plan outlines enhancements and improvements that aim to:

  • maximize public accessibility to the Halton Region waterfront by increasing the amount of well distributed public space
  • provide a variety of recreational, cultural and tourism opportunities along the Halton Region waterfront

  • Renewal of the short concrete wall between upper and lower promenade
