Enjoy the peaceful surroundings and wonderful views at this passive park!

Kerncliff Park is a unique and beautiful park site located on the Niagara Escarpment with magnificent views of the City and Lake Ontario. This environmentally based park has been developed to emphasize its natural beauty for the people of Burlington to enjoy.

This property was originally the site of the Nelson Quarry which ceased operations approximately 30 years ago. Since that time the site has been used by local residents for informal recreation such as hiking, and exploration.

The park has been undergoing a phased restoration and development plan which has included the stabilization of the quarry walls, creation of boardwalks across the wetland environments, walkways through the Carolinian Forest with a connection to the Bruce Trail, a pavilion, washrooms and parking.
