Sun Is Out, Menu’s Are Open. It’s Patio Season Burlington!
There is nothing quite like summer in Burlington Downtown. The streets come alive with a flurry of activity. Enjoy shopping and dining, entertainment and attractions. Uncover new favourites and staples. There is truly something for everyone around every corner.
When exploring our downtown, we want the beauty of community to be present in every possible way. From the hanging baskets lining Brant Street, to our gardens blooming with seasonal treasures, we want to make the quality of life for our Downtown businesses, visitors and residents better.
This year the BDBA will be installing 5 pedestrian walkaways across the downtown to support on-street patios. Each walkway system will feature a pair of stand-alone planter boxes, with seasonal plantings, to beautify the experience. There are ten planter boxes in total,
stationed at the entrance and exit points to the wooden walkways. They’ll be spread across five streets in the Downtown from May 11th through October 2023, attracting thousands of diners, visitors, and residents.
Each on-street patio experience will feature a planter box duo, at the two entrances / exits, and will be featured at the following locations:
- Elgin Street & Brant Street
- Pine Street & Elizabeth Street
- Lakeshore Road West of Brant Street
- Lakeshore Road East of Brant Street
- John Street & Brant Street
Our goal is to keep Burlington Downtown as the foremost in the public’s mind as an attractive, pleasant place to shop, to be entertained, to work, and to live. Through the introduction off the on-street patios, we hope to keep bolstering our hometown economy and see it thrive.
When spending time in our downtown this patio season, make sure to stop and enjoy these patio experiences. Supporting your favourite local businesses has never been so easy (and so stylish).
