Halton is your destination for active, summer fun

Throughout the year, and especially during the summer months, I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to visit Halton’s many vibrant communities. Whether I’m in Acton, Burlington, Georgetown, Milton or Oakville, a common trend emerges in my conversations with Halton residents – how happy you are to live in a region that offers so many options for a healthy, active lifestyle.HaltonSummerFun

Like many of you, I recognize how vital healthy, active communities are contributing to a high quality of life. As a former professional athlete and active living enthusiast, easy and sustainable alternative transportation options for residents are always top of mind.

A great example of the work Halton is doing to keep our community healthy, active and safe is the ongoing implementation of the Active Transportation Master Plan. So far, we have built approximately 190 kilometres of on-road exclusive bikes lanes and paved shoulders along Regional roads for you to safely bike, roll or stroll to enjoy summer activities across Halton.
