The Waterfront at Downtown Burlington (Spencer Smith Park) is home to Discovery Landing, a 14,200 square foot landmark building that faces out to the lake designed by Baird Sampson Neuert, it features Spencer’s on the Waterfront Restaurant, and 3 Bills (snack bar).  Discovery Landing overlooks the Burlington Rotary Centennial Pond, a 10,000 square-foot year-round water feature. In the spring, summer and fall it is a reflective pool ideal for model boating and in winter it offers free recreational skating on an artificial ice surface with skate rentals available on weekends.  The Burlington Waterfront also features the Dofasco Waterjet Plaza, the first of its kind in Burlington. Thirty water jets shoot up intermittently from the ground (in summer season) and along with the playground provide lots of fun for visiting children.  The highlight of Burlington’s Waterfront is the Brant Street Pier which extends 132 metres over Lake Ontario and provides breathtaking views of the lake and Burlington’s shoreline. A concrete walkway connects it to the existing promenade in the east end of the park. With its distinctive S-shape, the pier features a lookout level above the deck.  Nearby attractions include the Joseph Brant Museum (temporarily closed due to restoration), the Art Gallery of Burlington, Burlington Performing Arts Centre and the visitor information centre at 414 Locust St. (first floor of parking garage) steps from Lakeshore Rd,
