You can choose the name for three Burlington trails


The City of Burlington is looking for help from residents in naming three multi-use trails within the City. Residents can see maps and submit names at

"From a transportation perspective, name recognition is important as it helps familiarize users to our trail-system and will ultimately encourage increased use of these great cycling and active transportation assets,” said Vito Tolone, Director of Transportation Services.

Trail users will also find the official names and wayfinding signage very useful in cases where they need assistance." 

Once the submission deadline has closed, a committee made up of City staff and members of the Burlington Cycling Advisory Committee and the Integrated Transportation Advisory Committee will create a short-list of names. Residents will then be able to vote on their top choice from the short-list.

Trail locations

Location 1: Hydro corridor trail, north of the QEW, between the North Service Road at Roly Bird Park and Berwick Drive.         

Location 2: New downtown hydro corridor trail, east of Maple Avenue, between Ontario Street and Graham's Lane                 

Location 3: New trail east of Centennial Drive, between Upper Middle Road and Heathfield Drive (extending in the future to Mainway.)        

"Everyone is welcome to submit names for the trails,” said Chris Glenn, Director of Recreation Services. “They can be something fun, something relevant to that area or something that is historically significant.”
