    I am a frequent visitor the the Warplane museum. Every time I attend, I marvel at all the amazing aircraft displays. The museum does a fantastic job of offering fun and engaging events for all ages. Recently, I was a volunteer parking staff member for the Comic Con event. There were plenty of attendees dressed up in their favourite Cosplay or hero costumes. There was plenty of room to manoeuvre through the museum, tons of vendor booths, interviews and celebrity meetings. I am also delighted that the museum continues to offer ample FREE parking for all events. I wanted to highlight the excellent service of the museum and in particular, The Runway Café, who despite having had a credit/debit terminal issue Saturday morning, were still able to manage a huge line-up of attendees, vendors and guests by providing hot, tasty food that was processed quickly and efficiently. I was impressed! Thank you Warplane Museum for your amazing events and airplane fly-by's! I look forward the the RCAF 100 year celebration in 2024! Well done!

    I never get tired to visit any zoo around the world and this location reminds me of a similar location just outside San Diego:

    - we booked the tickets on the same Friday morning we visited (as we wanted to avoid crowds and with one week before they close on 8th of Oct) thankfully there were not many kids around as I have been told is the case in summer time:
    - entry of 36 CAD plus tax per person (check their site for discounts and infant related advice) if booked online (we printed the pages to show at the entrance in case there will be problems with our phones) with parking included
    - 5.25 CAD/person if you want to access the Safari bus (paid to the same person we showed our tickets) which I highly recommend if you want to see lions, hippos, giraffes, gibbons, zebras etc organised according to the part of the world they come from and whether they are herbivores or not!!!
    - even so, after visiting the park we decided to visit once again this area by going with our car, avoiding the gibbons (check the signs) due to being the most destructives when it suits them while targeting car antennas, mirrors etc!!!
    - free of charge African queen Boat cruise promising to see lots of primates: we saw only 2 types and the duration was around 15min
    - free of charge Scenic railways which took only 10 min and saw mainly ducks we had in our back garden in USA while seeing in the distance the elephant enclosure area which you can access also by walking - check their free maps
    - free of charge Birds of prey flying demonstration, we saw only the end of it as they had only 2 birds
    - free of charge Pets' corner and Parrot paradise are located near each other, however you cannot touch the pets (the way you do at London or San Diego zoos or similar ones around the world) and the big parrots are located in enclosures some 10 metres away from you (Miami zoo has parrots you can touch; so many are trying to escape from their enclosures by digging in the ground - just too hilarious). Lots of owls and other birds of prey also located in their enclosures, some more interested in humans than others: bigger the brain, higher the level of intelligence, right?
    - lots of places for kids to scream as much as they can in topogans etc
    - reduced eating locations except the massive Mombasa market restaurant inside a building where you can have pizza, burgers etc and icecreams, drinks etc) Large toilets located here besides more around the park

    I assume some of these locations might not be functioning the way one would expect due to being late September, hence I would strongly recommend to check their online info (or as you arrive) for demonstrations/train/boat timing etc

    I have honestly never had as good of a tour as the Christmas at Dunduran with Alex. He was phenomenal, great pace, amazing knowledge of the times as well as a real knack for the small details often missed during these tours. The residence is in amazing shape and has a real energy to it. Would highly recomend a visit. Thank you for a great experience.

    a great tour of Canadian history. Informative and friendly staff. Nice to see the inside after seeing the boat from the water and walk ways.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The old Copps Coliseum is in downtown Hamilton between Main Street East and York Street-Catherine. FirstOntario Centre’s not a very walkable area. The best thing is that it’s just 45 minutes from Toronto or Niagara. Seating 219 or 115 is directly under the box. Seating @16(208-09)/17(107-08) and 19(210-11) is probably cheaper—in the middle where the screens are. It’s accessed by stairs descending from FoodWorks poutine ($10-14) past PizzaPizza & the ATM. They directly face midway seats 55(228-29) and 53(121-22) by the Lounge. The nearest parking, by the bottom of the Centre escalators, is adjacent—under Jackson Square next door (flanked by Tim Horton’s coffee shops)—South-East of York’s one-way on Bay St. The other (W) side of the intersection at York-Bay is a grey Canadian Forces /government building without public parking there nor at the old red-brick Macdonald High School. From the sidewalk, it’s a bit confusing finding FirstOntario Centre (not to be confused with ‘Ontario Place’). The “Ontario Insurance” branding or Box Office sign is your best bet to enter the hockey arena/concert venue. Carry your own water bottle, which can be bought at the Nations Fresh Foods store with min. $30 supermarket receipt /parking validation (& washroom), just inside JacksonSquare’s Bay doorway. For wheelchair access there’s mainly one pay lot: on the other side of York Street (with RBC bank machine & BMO ATM beside Jackson Square’s Sheraton Hotel rear Starbucks /Pita Pit), past Anchor Bar fried pizza. For pickup/group order: 905-527 -7383 or ca208 @mypitapit.ca. Except holidays the ground level accessible door is open at the TekKlinic-Dollarama /food court corridor of Jackson Square. The Tim Horton’s (without washroom) is always open at the other end of the Square below Hamilton City Centre & college too. For Atkins dieters, Subway salad bowls (besides Pita Pit halal) is hidden behind Royal Shawarma. York Street is one way though. If you need to stop while driving East toward Toronto, in reverse, turn left off Bay onto Cannon Street and veer right along the water past Dundurn Castle; it’ll turn into the York Street ramp to access highway 403 that changes names (by highway 407 toll North or 403-Niagara S) to Queen Elizabeth Way E-Gardiner Expressway, toward downtown Toronto. Without the perks, FirstOntario is more conveniently located than one would think in SW Ontario!

    We went on a Thursday that’s was cloudy, but warm day, it was not busy so no lines! All kids under 10 years old have to wear a life jacket in the wave pool and easy river. There are six water slides, and you can rent for $5 your own tube. It has lots of seating area, but the picnic tables in the middle have no shading. There is a big pool area for smaller kids with three little slides. I definitely recommend it.

    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.

    To learn how not to give up your country to Americans. Learn how the loyalists fought the good fight and won. Beautiful and picturesque area that was once a battle ground area.

    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.

    We had a great afternoon at firepit, eating the snacks with a wine, in the cold, they're mulled wine is really good. Nice, quite surroundings. Service was great and never felt rushed. Blankets available, if needed. The wine and snacks are so good, Try it out, you won't be disappointed. We had a family (adults) meet.
