Central (Downtown Burlington)

For anyone and everyone with a taste and appreciation for living in the heart of it all.

The Vibe

Burlington’s downtown, the Central neighbourhood, offers the vibrancy of urban living in a peaceful small town setting. Walk to shops and boutiques. Experience an evening out at the theatre. Dine in a signature restaurant. Architecturally interesting homes on tree-lined streets radiate out from the Lake and well appointed condominiums showcase stunning vistas.

Central is for anyone and everyone with a taste and appreciation for living in the heart of it all.

What's Central Downtown All About

Central is an eclectic mix of home styles and vintages: character homes from the early 1900’s, mid-century standards of split levels and bungalows, and later, two storey detached, attached, and high rise condominium properties. Lots on which to build architecturally modern detached homes are highly prized. Burlington’s Central neighbourhood is a combination of old and new, quaint and convenient, and yet, relatively affordable for a downtown core. If you are drawn to homes of a bygone era, given thought to renovate a traditional dwelling, or if your castle is high in the sky with fabulous lake views, then this may be the community best able to fulfill your dreams.

The waterfront is a year round premiere attraction. The Brant Street Pier with magnificent shoreline views captivates visitors. Wonder at the beauty of Lake Ontario from the promenade or break wall of Spencer Smith Park, a favoured location for many of Burlington’s annual festivals and events. The neighbourhood even has its very own Central Park. The Recreation, Seniors and Youth Centres, the Burlington Lawn Bowling and Tennis Clubs, the Central Library, a bandshell, community garden, labyrinth and playgrounds are all within the park’s boundaries.

Lakeshore and Brant, and their connecting side streets, form downtown’s commercial area for upscale boutiques, cafes and restaurants, spas and luxury home decor. No big box stores here. Daily shopping, professional services and chain retail can be located in various plazas along Brant or Fairview Streets, Guelph Line, and in the Burlington or Mapleview Centre Malls.

Patronize your favourite cafe in the morning for coffee and pastry, take an afternoon walk through Spencer Smith Park, share a family meal in a nearby pub, and perhaps take in a show at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre in the evening. A picture perfect day in Burlington?
