Mountainside is the most affordable neighbourhood in Burlington. If you want a detached home for the price of a semi or townhome, this is where you are likely to find it.
Splash Pad & Pool
The Mountainside pool and splash pad are beloved by everyone in Burlington. The waterslides make it feel more like a water park than a regular pool and splash pad.
The Mount Royal Diner
There is something about this greasy spoon. It’s always packed at breakfast.

Let’s face it. You need this place. With every fibre of my being I hate going to Costco, but I do it every week.
