Description

A Public Park Like No Other: A story of the people who lived in and around the present Burloak Waterfront Park. This park is a treasure of nature accessible now to the public along the eastern entrance to the City of Burlington, Ontario. It is a part of the Waterfront Trail founded under the leadership of David Crombie. This trail wanders also along the shore of Lake Ontario in parts of the Golden Horseshoe from Niagara-on-the-Lake to almost the Quebec border. The author lived on this Burlington park section with his grandparents from the forties until it was sold to the Regional Municipality of Halton, in 1989. When Mary Munro was elected Councillor in 1973, she promoted a policy of acquiring land along Burlington's beautiful shore wherever it could be obtained and as it became available. It was a forward-thinking move by this future mayor. The book makes fascinating reading as it describes the characters and their life and times. Though he wishes he could be living in this location today, the author is grateful that the park is there for all people to enjoy forever. Its heritage is described through reminiscences of David's neighbours and those living nearby on Lakeshore Road....
