Beachway Park


Beachway Park is a 2-kilometre stretch of waterfront that juts out into Lake Ontario. The beach runs north and south and creates a natural barrier to Hamilton Harbour, the westernmost tip of Lake Ontario. The area is a unique natural sand-dune formation that was breathtaking in its natural state. The Beachway became a popular cottage area in the 1800s, then industrialized in the 1900s. Today, Burlington is buying back the few remaining parcels of privately held land to create more public space.

Beaches in Halton Region are monitored twice per week or more if conditions change.
