Binbrook Conservation

Hamilton, Ontario

Binbrook is home to the Lake Niapenco reservoir, the largest inland lake in the Niagara Watershed.

Well known as a “hot spot” for fishing, Binbrook Conservation Area also plays host to annual fishing derbies. Other facilities that can be found at Binbrook include a swimming beach, children’s splash pad, picnic facilities, nature trails, observation platforms and a play area. It resembles cottage country, and the impressive part is, it’s close to home!

Bring or rent a rowboat, paddle boat or canoe, and experience scenic Binbrook from the water. Canoe along the tranquil shores of one of the few inland lakes located within the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority’s watershed.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is essential right now. Follow the advice of the health experts. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Heading to the beach should only be considered an option if social distancing practices can be followed. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter the efforts to curb the virus’ spread.

For more information, please visit the World Health Organization public resource on COVID-19.
