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

  • Gateway to Hamilton's Waterfront

    Hamilton Waterfront’s Pier 8 is a wonderful place to spend the afternoon. Take a relaxing cruise on the harbour, or try a spin on the outdoor roller-skating rink. There are also great options for a meal or snack.

  • Water-filled Fun

    Hamilton’s Confederation Beach Park is a 93-hectare package of fun and adventure located on the shores of Lake Ontario offering family fun like batting cages, go-karts and the Wild Waterworks water park.

  • Catch the Big One

    Fifty Point Conservation Area boasts one of the warmest and cleanest beaches on western Lake Ontario. Catch a big one at the site’s fishing pond, which is stocked with rainbow trout and largemouth bass – no fishing license required!

  • Lakeside Lounging

    Pinehurst Lake is a nine-hectare (23-acre) kettle lake formed by a single piece of ice. The lake has a sandy beach and is surrounded by mature Carolinian forest.
