Name This Trail

Naming of multi-use trails is important for some of the same reasons that streets are named. It helps users to:

  • locate a trail on a map for planning a route
  • navigate while using the trail
  • identify a location, if emergency services are required
  • promote the trail to residents and visitors

There are three distinct trails that the City is looking to the residents of Burlington to name. We'd like you to share your ideas for potential names for one, two or all of the three trails. All suggestions will be carefully considered and a shortlist of finalists will be selected for each trail. Once the finalists are selected, we'd like you to come back to this webpage in March and vote for your favourite trail names. The top names will be given to City Council for final approval.
