    A Regular
    I go to Binbrook Conservation area on a regular basis. It is a beautiful park with lots of space for everyone. The beach area could use more attention, as it gets dirty with bird droppings . The fishing is not good since the water has been polluted. The swim area seems fine since it is a continually flowing stream cleansing the water. The floatable area looks like fun and is a good distance from the swim area not to collide. The splash pad is excellent for children as well as adults. Picnic areas are clean, lots of parking, grounds are well maintained, but grass cutting should be done before and after the crowds come. A Sunday spent listening to the sound of tractors mowing was not money well spent. Parks should be relaxing , not like tanning in the middle of a construction zone. That is my only complaint.

    Another excuse to relax, or do nothing is acceptable..
    Even if you do not need to swim, just the mere view of the lake gives you serenity that you cannot resist to enjoy it. Picnic areas are versatile and selective by the purpose you may need, shady, sunny, crowd exposed or calm and quiet. If you visit with kids they will be grateful you took them there (my grand kids were for sure talking foe days afterward)

The fish in the lake are highly contaminated with the "forever chemicals" PFAS (because the lake is downstream of the Hamilton International Airport). The levels are so high that children and women of childbearing age should not eat any of most of the fish you would catch in the lake. If you ask for information about the contamination, there is no information available. There are no signs about the contamination, and the website also says nothing about the contamination.

Took our kids to the beach. We were the first ones there and the hadn’t been cleaned overnight. It was disgusting. Garbage everywhere. Goose crap everywhere and I mean everywhere. As people came they walked up and down the beach looking for a spot to sit. 24 bucks to go sit in filth. Clearly no one that works there cares about the shape of the beach. Embarrassing, I won’t be back and will tell others to steer clear.

Nice place for family picnic. Nice and clean beach and nice splash pad. Little bit expensive. no showers and only one change room so you have to wait.

Took a drive out to Binbrook as we wanted to go out on the water. Rented a Canoe , Kayak and Paddleboat and set out on our Canadian Odyssey😂. The Staff were very thorough in going through all things safety and we had a great time. Will have to go back again to do the Treetops and Zipwire adventures.

We had a great time at the conservation area today. The inflatables were a great value and the kids had a fantastic time. Lots of things to do in the area - including zip lining and a splash of. We packed a lunch which was fantastic and hung out at the beach while the kids played!

Lots to do - renting paddle boards was a great way to explore the water - well worth the money! Many things to keep people entertained and nice places to picnic. Will go back for sure.

I started coming here in summer 2018 for paddleboarding and was not disappointed. The lake is easily 12km around!
