by Pam Belgrade

As reopening Ontario continues we are pleased to share with you the activities in the Burlington area that are now open (while still maintaining physical distancing).  Remember you should be enjoying these activities with members of your own circle and keeping group sizes to 10 people.  Please check with the facility/organization before you visit so you get the most up-to-date information on amenities, hours of operation and permitted uses.  We will be updating this listing regularly as we become aware of more areas reopening. 

To take advantage of these reopenings Tourism Burlington is pleased to announce a new #BurlON Fun Pass, which offers deals and discounts from over 40 amazing businesses across Burlington. There has never been a better time to be a tourist in your own backyard, so support local and discover all that beautiful Burlington has to offer! This is a FREE pass for Burlington residents and their visiting friends and family. All you need to do is sign up and present your offer via your smart device at any of the participating businesses to redeem and save.

Our visitor information centre is now open daily from 9-4pm with physical distancing measures in place. Drop in our call us at 905 634.5594.

Due to COVID-19, face coverings are mandatory inside buildings and enclosed public spaces open to the public.
