LaSalle Park

50 North Shore Boulevard, Burlington, ON 
Size: 23.07 acres

In 1915 this 57 acre parcel of land was purchased by the Hamilton Parks Board and called Wabasso Park. In 1926, to commemorate Sieur de La Salle's landing in the area the name was changed to La Salle Park. Today, the park is still owned by Hamilton with a lease agreement to Burlington, in which Burlington assumes all maintenance, operational, programming and management responsibilities for the park.

La Salle Park Pavilion was built by the City of Hamilton in the spring of 1917. The pavilion was designed in an age when community entertainment was at its height. Unfortunately, a fire completely destroyed the wood framed second floor of the building. The pavilion was rebuilt to its original architectural form in 1997 and once again stands proudly as a community landmark.

With two luxurious banquet rooms overlooking Burlington Bay, LaSalle Park is a perfect setting for business meetings or social functions, complete with in-house catering, bar service, air conditioning and wheelchair access.

The park also includes: a marina, walking trails, sports fields, playground, wading pool, splash pad and extensive picnic area.

The park's shoreline is dedicated to fish and wildlife habitat restoration.  Please Explore!
