Flamborough is comprised of several smaller communities including, but not limited to Rockton, Waterdown, Freelton and Greensville. The communities are primarily rural, small town communities. Majority of the area sits atop the Niagara Escarpment, with the Spencer’s Gorge and Webster’s Falls Conservation Area looking down over the Dundas Valley.
Christie Lake is a popular area that offers hiking, fishing and boating. It is also the host of many events over the year including the Punisher Adventure Race, and the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic.
Flamboro Downs is an outdoor horse track as well as an OLG Slots Casino and has been the source of plenty of debate and was a key player in the discussions of 2014 about whether or not to build a downtown Casino.
African Lion Safari has been a family favourite since I was a kid – so that’s saying a lot. Located North West of Rockton, you can drive through it, take a boat cruise and take part in the splash park.
Every Thanksgiving weekend is the annual Rockton Worlds Fair featuring a traditional carnival midway, lots of rides and exhibits and of course the Giant Pumpkin competition
Waterdown has a new festival that began in 2014 in mid May the Main Street and Dundas Street in the downtown core with music, food trucks and vendors – the Waterdown Arts & Music Streetsfest.
Waterdown is one of the more “urban” communities with many new developments underway, and access to a lot of the major chain restaurants and power centres along Highway 8.
Westfield Heritage Village – offers up interactive learning about pioneer living throughout the year, with Maple Syrup festival in Winter, and Ice Cream Festival in the summer!
