    Our Family visited here on a beautiful Summer's Day. We were fortunate to see a Young Lion Couple mating. We also saw 3 Tigers at the fence imagining eating the Gazelles on the other side.
    You definetly want to take the tour bus. We saw the Monkeys damage a few cars ahead of our Bus.

    Paul, Brayden, and all the staff were superb. Paul's genuine love, enthusiasm and knowledge made it a perfect day. Our private 'sloth encounter' was wonderful, but those two sloth fellas are pretty reluctant hosts and mostly just hung out in their corners and took a few small nibbles of snacks from our grandson as we gave them a few gentle pets. I thought the staff might hold them a bit closer to us, but they were sleepy (sloths, not Brayden!) so we let them be. Brayden was amazing and let us stay on premises a bit longer and do a little 'meet and greet' with a few tortoises, and didn't rush us out at all. It is clear the animals are loved, protected, and well cared for. Any reptile enthusiast needs to see these stunning animals; the snakes and lizards are breathtaking. The adorable jogging and nibbling of Paul's shoe by the armadillo, during Paul's mini-show was an awesome plus. Paul and everyone made us feel so welcome. Paul makes sure you will get some killer photos with some gorgeous creature.
    Tip- make sure you wear layers; it as hot and muggy as south Texas day in June, so have a tee-shirt on. For those on a budget, you can skip the sloth and still have an amazing time.

    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.

    Lovely day to walk this area. It was like a symphony hearing nature sing. Good long walk, level clear path. Great exercise

    a great visit. friendly staff, and even better conditions. challenging but fun!
    All in all. this was a good day of golfing, (not for me mind you!). The club house staff was great the the greeting, told of us the 90 degree rule right away. the starter was friendly and engaging and was goofing a bit but it was nice to start the day. The course was clean of debris, freshly cut and greens were rolling great! good job guys!

    Our grandsons, 3 and 15 month thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the petting area. They were captivated with their interactions with all the animals and were totally entertained for a good hour; not a small feat with little ones. We were fortunate to have warm but not hot weather during our morning visit. The atmosphere was welcoming and relaxed. The animals were gentle and comfortable being touched. As staff wandered around doing chores, it was clear that these rescued animals were well loved and cared for.
    Check in was efficient and quick and the young man assisting us gave us an overview of amenities.
    This visit was reasonably priced and worth every penny. We plan to return.

    quietly nestled into a small part of Churchill Park lies the Friends of the Aviary in Hamilton. although not a huge facility the first thing I noticed is how dedicated the staff is to their birds. It doesn't take long to cover the whole place so we took our time and tried to have a chat with many of the lovely birds with some responding. you see pictures of these animals but rarely come this close so the colours were very impressive. I will be back but next time in the summer so we can get a better look at the surrounding grounds. highly recommended.

    Its funny how even after living in the same city for over 40 years you can still find new places to explore. I have hiked in that area many many times but never wandered over to the Escarpment Rail Trail. I always knew it was there I just didnt know where it went or how long it would take to walk it.But after some Google Mapping I knew exactly where it went. My wife and I parked off Mohawk Rd there is a free parking lot with plenty of parking. The trail runs right by it. To hike the trail from the parking lot to the Claremount Access takes approximately one hour and 15 minutes by foot. So if your looking for a good 2.5 hrs hike this is the place. There is plenty of shade with lots of tree coverage and if your into running up and down stairs you will walk by two different sets of metal stairs to get your cardio up and running. Plenty of people either walk, run, or ride their bikes up and down this trail. Its a nice gentle slope so you dont feel exhausted walking back up towards your car. Your feet might hurt but your legs should be fine! My wife calculates her steps on her fitbit so for those looking for a huge return on getting your steps that day this walk usually gives her around 18,000 steps. It truly is a beautiful place to go for a walk. One of those hidden gems in the city of Hamilton to explore.

    This new park is located just minutes away from one of the busiest streets on Hamilton mountain. The large park was set aside by the city to provide a multi use recreational area in the neighbourhood. It contains two playground areas for kids, a splash pad, tennis courts, football field and soccer pitches. Several walking trails are found in the park, some paved, some not. There is a large pond that is the central feature of the park that has become inhabited by some ducks and geese. There is a change house and washrooms and a fair bit of parking available off West 5th Street.

    The only problem that have surfaced are complaints that some people are using motorized dirt bikes on the walking trails which poses a hazard to people who are just out walking. Other than this, it is a perfect park for all people.

    I recently golfed here for a work tournament and everyone had a good time. The course is really good but I don't really have much to compare it to. The service was excellent and so was the food especially the Bulgogi cheesesteak sandwich and fries. I would go back just to have the sandwich. Hopefully we'll be back next year

    It's one of the best farms around this area. The entrance prices are fairly decent in compare to other places, apples prices are a bit on expensive side in compare to supermarkets - but quality is good. And there is some stuff to do with kids like a tractor ride, a trail or a sandbox filled with corn.

    This place is great if you're able to go. Update though: During COVID the parking is closed and no place close by to park legally. There were too many people using parking lot as place to park to go to Websters Falls even though it is noted to be closed online. Annoying that people ruin this and got this placed closed because they were sneaking into the nearby falls.

    We recently played the 18 hole mini put and we had a good time. It's more like a golf course putting green because it doesn't have the traditional mini put themes but is great for practicing putting. I also tried the driving range and it was very good too. I would definitely go back.
