Home to miles and miles of Lake Ontario shorelines and historic harbours, as well as the Grand River watershed, celebrate Canada’s most valuable resource in Hamilton Halton Brant.

  • A Rare Meromictic Lake

    Experience Crawford Lake, a rare meromictic lake, which means its layers of water do not intermix, creating a unique environment that has allowed archaeologists to drill core samples of pollen from hundreds of years ago.

  • This Trail's a Shore Thing

    The HamBur Loop, the section of the Waterfront Trail which runs between Hamilton and Burlington, is a beautiful stretch of shoreline that offers amazing options for recreational pursuits, including beaches, bike trails, wading pools and great restaurants and cafés that offer perfect patios for dining with a view.
