Burlington StoryWalk

We would like to acknowledge that our StoryWalk® projects are located on the ancestral and treaty lands of the Mississauga’s of the Credit First Nation of the Anishinaabek Peoples. And we would like to express our gratitude for sharing these lands for our mutual benefit.

What is a StoryWalk®?

A StoryWalk® is a fun and engaging opportunity for you to read a story and enjoy the outdoors at the same time! Pages of a book are posted along a trail, path, or in a park. Travel from sign to sign to read the story. Optional physical literacy and early literacy activities are included on each sign.

StoryWalks are available to enjoy anytime; you do not need to register in advance or arrive at a specific time.

Selected StoryWalk® stories are geared towards children ages 3+ but we encourage all ages to explore and enjoy. 

Presented in partnership with the City of Burlington's Recreation, Community and Culture department.
