Have a swim, go for a hike, enjoy our museums or conservation areas – from Dundas to Stoney Creek, Flamborough, on the mountain or downtown, there is an activity for your family to enjoy. Presented with support from Pioneer Energy, there’s no better way to celebrate our history and our future together than here in Hamilton, the city we love.
