Elizabeth Gardens is close to the city of Toronto, yet surrounded by the stunning parks, gardens and the very popular downtown Burlington waterfront, making this the ideal neighbourhood for everybody.
Every June, Burlington is transformed with Canada's largest free music festival. Thousands come to the festival every year to celebrate music by discovering new and emerging artists at over one hundred free performances.
The Sound of Music Festival has something for the whole family. A carnival, downtown street fest, parade, family zone and a free music education program for the kids are just some of the fabulous activities of that you can enjoy at the festival.
The festival has been one of the highlights of summer in Burlington for over thirty five years, and is truly an occasion not to be missed.
The Art Gallery of Burlington opened in 1978 as a venue to develop dedicated studios for photography, hand weaving and spinning, sculpture and woodcarving, ceramics, fine arts, and hooking craft for regional artists. The scope of the gallery quickly expanded, and has now become an award winning gallery that sets the stage for as many as 12 exhibitions a year as well as providing art education programs and public tours for people of all ages.
The Art Gallery of Burlington has eight studios, three galleries, a gift shop, an exhibition courtyard and year round conservatory.
The Burloak Waterfront Park has over eight hundred meters of shoreline with stunning scenic views and a cliff formation that is home to a large amount of swallows. From the bluffs, you can see the shell working pier where the ships refuel as well as a breathtaking view of the Toronto Skyline.
The park has a picnic area, playground and plenty of parking.
