Living in one of the greatest cities in Canada, Burlington offers a wealth of outdoor activities to feed your soul and body. From physical exertion to pure natural pursuits, Appleby Gardens Luxury Residences by LJM Developments provide a great home base for enjoying some amazing outdoor activities. Let’s explore the City of Burlington and area activities together.
Living in a northern climate tend to provoke a shedding of clothing earlier than probably is wise compared to the temperatures. Many Canadians in the spring will opt for a T-shirt in 10-15°C weather, whereas in the fall this would require a sweater. Being cooped up all winter long enables us to appreciate these temperatures.
In Burlington when spring and summer roll around, there is no shortage of outdoor activities to enjoy and close to your new Condo home as well. With 10 city parks within just 30 minutes walking distance and two literally right around the corner, enjoying a brisk walk or light jog to these parks is easy. If you prefer cycling, the waterfront trail in Burlington is an easy 30 minute ride, while the Bronte Creek Provincial Park is less than 20 minutes away. For cycling enthusiasts, the Rattlesnake Point Conservation and the Royal Botanical Gardens are both within an hour’s ride. Of course the Botanical Gardens with outdoor gardens is a great day event for the entire family.
With 8 Golf courses within the city limits, hitting the links is never far away. For those with more adventuresome tastes, Mount Nemo Conservation area, part of the Bruce Trail and Niagara Escarpment is only 15 minutes away by car. With plenty of hiking trails, family picnic spots and rock climbing cliff faces, it can keep those ultimately interested in the outdoors occupied for days.
Of course if you like the more relaxed side of life, the waterfront trail, Pier and beaches along Burlington’s Lake Ontario shoreline provides plenty of fun in the sun in the summer.
Winter Wonderland Activities
Winter provides just as many fun filled and snowy adventures. From your new Home at Appleby you could be hitting the slopes at Glen Eden in under 30 minutes from door to slope. A conservation area for summer, it transforms into a skiing area in the winter with full programs for skiing novices and experts. Simply ski the slopes, take a few classes or even take the kids out for a toboggan ride.
Looking to take part in a Canadian classic outdoor winter activity? At Crawford Lake and Mountsberg Conservation area in the winter offers snowshoe rentals and plenty of trails to hike along. Enjoy the scenery, learn a piece of Canadian heritage and work out all at the same time.
Just around the corner of course is the Bronte Creek Provincial Park complete with an old fashion toboggan hill. Whether you want to bobsled down on your favourite racer or wind down on an old wooden sleigh, hours of fun in the snow await. The Provincial Park also has an Olympic size outdoor skating rink. Alternately you could skate at the Rotary Centennial Pond in downtown Burlington. With plenty of open spaces across the county, cross-country skiing is also an option.
