- A great place to see fireworks and go for a walk or bike ride. Food options at either end of park. Public washrooms in 3 locations. Skate rink open year round as well.Written October 15, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Visited on a coolish June Monday afternoon. We enjoyed walking through time with the buildings that come from different eras, but sadly no buildings were open to visitors. But we still spent more than two hours there, including some walking on trails outside the village center.Written June 20, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Bruce Trail is great to the Falls (70 ft/21x6 m) in the waterfall capital of the world, not far from Niagara Falls. Saved $11 by asking on a weekday at McMaster Mills Library about the free 1-day Hamilton Conservation Area pass (parking $8 maybe less at Sherman Falls lot). Exit off Rousseaux/Mohawk Rd., like ‘Mohawk Falls’, named after Six Nations-Brantford—unlike ‘Montgomery Drive’ like the Scots-Irish who settled here. The hike is short, unless taking Brantford Rail Trail.

- Beautiful area with great view. Dry weather seems to have reduced the flow to a trickle. I would reccomend a couple of rainy days before I would head out next time. The observation platform has a great view. The parking was a bit expensive at $7.50 for the short time that we stayed. I bet it is beautiful with more water.Written July 29, 2022
- Often there is a festival of some kind in the summer. Other times of the year it is good to visit for a walk or quiet afternoon.Written October 25, 2023
- The Rocking The Waterfront classic car show is no longer running. Has been cancelled until further notice.Written July 20, 2023
- I went for a walk and saw Tews falls and the gorge. There were stairs the view the falls on a lower level and a higher level.Written April 24, 2022
- in 1966 my 2 brothers and I discovered the grinding stone that is mounted at top of falls. is was burried under the path to the left of falls. It was tradition on good Friday to walk the Bruce trail and have a hot dog lunch at the bottom of the FallsWritten February 18, 2022
- This is a must visit place for everyone in the Hamilton and Dundas area. Every season is good. You can fill up with water at the tap.Written January 12, 2023
- Clean park, close to Toronto. Sites seem a bit small and with average privacy (we could see and hear 2 out of 3 neighbours). Online it said our site had "good" privacy but it didn't seem very private at all. Stayed in the dogwood & pines section which seems to have more trees and more of a forest feel than some of the other areas of the park. However, this section is NOT radio free and we had families with LOTS of children singing and playing music until midnight. If you are looking for a quieter camping experience perhaps look at the radio free sections. The lake seemed clean and the trails around the park are easy to walk. The bathrooms were clean and close to our site. Overall I would recommend this park for families with children as there are lots of activities for them to do. We will try to camp here again perhaps in the fall when it isn't in the peak of summer.Written July 12, 2018
- Great place to visit. Keep in mind you have to make a reservation in advance to enter the sites. There is some parking available in the town itself but it’s quite a walk to the fallsWritten November 7, 2022
- A great trail for biking or walking. It takes a few hours end to end and at some points you can turn off and find a place to eat or dirnk.Written October 25, 2023
- We enjoy going to Fifty Point and camping there for a few days.
The sites are open, no trees and no fire pits which is a real let down.
Sites are level gravel and grass.Written September 20, 2020
- This is a hidden gem in Hamilton, Ontario. It is a relatively small operation but a private tour takes about 2 hours. Erica, our guide, was exceptionally knowledgeable about generous with the information she provided. She did not rush us and opened as many of the exhibits as was possible allowing us to handle the reptiles, tortoises, etc. The opportunity to experience these animals was a real treat ... some of us having to challenge our fears to handle and touch things like snakes. They really aren't slimy at all!! We had the opportunity to pet and play with a hedge hog but the piece de resistance was Iris, the 6 month old, two toed sloth. They brought her out with her blanket and each of us (we were a group of 4 adults) had the opportunity to hold, feed and pet her. She was adorable as you can see from the photos.
All of the staff are knowledgeable and engage authentically with visitors. We learned a great deal about the creatures that some of us didn't know .
We highly recommend this little gem. It would be fun for child and, it is possible to book a birthday party there. They also cater to schools and will bring some of the animals to visit the classroom.
One suggestion, take a bottle of water with you. It is quite hot and humid. It feels hotter and more humid the longer you're there. We were all perspiring and in need of water which isn't available there. Do yourself a favour and take a bottle each with you.
They have a second location in Ottawa which we've not seen but if it's half as good as Hamilton, it will be more than worth it.Written October 17, 2022
- A beautiful waterfall so close to home. Quiet, peaceful and visually stunning. A hidden gem. Recommend a visit!Written May 12, 2023
