Biking & Walking

Biking & Walking in Downtown Burlington

You can easily explore the entire Downtown core on foot or by bike!  Downtown Burlington has achieved our Ontario By Bike™ business area certification! The goal of this initiative is to create a positive experience and fuel your desire to get back on the saddle to explore more of Ontario By Bike.
