The Burford Lions Club has donated $4000 to the County of Brant to purchase new streets lights along the Lions Way Walking Trail on Maple Ave. N. in Burford.
The Lions Way Walking Trail extends from Broadview Dr. on Maple Ave. N to the Lions Art Cadman Park Lions Park where the beautiful Whiteman’s Creek winds through the park and an abundance of trails can be enjoyed.
“The trail is used for walking and biking by hundreds of people each year,” said Willie Maertens,President of the Burford Lions Club. “Residents enjoy this trail and safe access to the park year round. The new streetlights help to illuminate the trail in the evening and early morning hours. The Burford Lions are committed to the health and wellbeing of people in our community.”
The County of Brant has installed the new street lights.
“We are so grateful for the Burford Lions Club and their generosity to the people who live in and visit the County,” said Mayor David Bailey. “The Burford Lions Club have been incredible community leaders for many decades and are continuously working to advance the quality of life within our community.”
