About the Neighbourhood

01

At the edge of the Niagara Escarpment, tucked away in a quiet escape from the hustle and bustle of Toronto, the Victorian village of Waterdown in Hamilton is an ideal community that hits the mark on overall livability and affordability.

The Niagara Escarpment is a true gem in Southern Ontario. As a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve with the oldest forest ecosystem and trees in eastern North America, the Niagara Escarpment is full of beautiful natural landscapes and scenic views. Hamilton is the Waterfall Capital of the World with over 100 waterfalls throughout the city, many of which are in or near Waterdown itself. It provides the perfect place for families to enjoy the outdoors and get some fresh air while they hike, cycle, or stroll along the many trails and pathways.

The downtown core is quaint, home to local business and offices. While it still boasts lovely stonework buildings and heritage sites befitting of a town founded in 1830, Waterdown is also home to a number of modern amenities that offer convenience and accessibility.

Waterdown is home to a number of well-known outlets, department stores, fashion retailers, and restaurants, alongside shops, boutiques, cafés, fitness studios and more. The local small businesses are a great place to start when first becoming a part of the lovely community. For history buffs, the town is host to a number of historical sites and events to explore.

Waterdown is a prime choice for families who require easy access to the rest of the GTA. Commuting throughout Hamilton is a breeze, and Mississauga, Burlington, Brantford, Cambridge, Milton and Oakville are all less than 40 minutes away. GO Bus stations can be found throughout the town, and GO Train connecting to Union Station can be found in the nearby community of Aldershot, only 15 minutes away.

For a balance of natural beauty, modern convenience and small-town charm, Waterdown is the perfect place to start.
