Central Park will be the home of new Seniors Exercise Stations and Social Space. The exercise stations will have workout equipment that are built for seniors. In between gentle workouts, the seniors can rest and socialize at the seating benches under the shade of trees.

This project is from a donation from the Burlington Seniors Community Programs and Services Inc. (BSCI). The BSCI donated the first Seniors Exercise Stations and Social Space in the beautiful Burloak Waterfront Park in 2020. The success of this project prompted the decision by BSCI to build a second one in Central Park. Central Park was chosen as the site is frequented by seniors who may be visiting the Seniors Centre and the library.

The City of Burlington has closed the Headon Forest Pedestrian Bridge to ensure public safety. During recent maintenance and repair work, it was determined the main structure of the bridge is in very poor condition. The steel structural supports under the wood decking have significant corrosion and can no longer support the bridge. The deterioration has occurred rapidly since the last inspection of the bridge. An inspection by a Structural Engineer confirmed the bridge must be closed for safety purposes.
The bridge will remain closed until it can be replaced. It is anticipated the new bridge will be installed and open for use in spring 2023. All efforts are being made to advance this timeline, if possible.
During the bridge closure, do not place wooden pallets or other structures in the creek, as this can create a blockage which can result in significant flooding.
Please detour along Headon Forest Drive, Northampton Boulevard and Dundas Street or along Headon Forest Drive,...

The City of Burlington completed the Grindstone Creek Erosion Control Study Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study between Waterdown Road and Hidden Valley Park. Based on field investigation, six areas of concern were identified, however only two areas of concern (3 and 4) were carried forward for the detailed design. A preferred alternative was selected for each area of concern; this includes local restorative works with natural channel design and/or erosion control. Implementing the preferred alternatives will achieve the study goal to reduce erosion, enhance/preserve terrestrial and aquatic habitat and reduce the risk to public safety and municipal infrastructure.
The City of Burlington will be starting restoration works during the summer of 2023. The restoration work will include bank protection, minor channel realignment and fish habitat improvements.Public Engagement

Appleby Creek Erosion Control Environmental Assessment (EA) Study completed in 2020 identified channel erosion and slope destabilization within the Appleby Creek area from South Service Road to Lake Ontario. The EA recommended erosion reduction strategies to be completed in phases.
