“Cool old village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We go several times a year tovisit -usually for Maple syrup festival, ice cream festival, christmas visit and another somewhere in between. There is always something new to see and do. The people that are at each of the stores or houses are always friendly and knowledgeable. They really do a great job here, have lots of tidbits to share with visitors.

“Going back to the past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Very nice village, and a must-see in the Maple Festival.
Have been there twice, and spent hours and I still haven't seen all the shops.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

It had been a long time since I have been to Westfield but the memories linger. There is a lot to see and do here, who I think the entire family will live. My favorite time to visit is in Christmas, where there are many activities for everyone to get involved in.

“Great family Halloween”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The volunteers at Westfield are top notch! Kids will enjoy the old stories told in heritage houses that are brought in from around Ontario. There is a huge steam locomotive that is a highlight of any Halloween visit. It's a nice stroll on beautiful grounds and the food is good at the little restaurant. Buying a pass for Hamilton Conservation areas gets you great discounts for this attraction, especially if you have a family because Halloween is free with the pass as well as some other times. The blacksmith's shop is great, it's all great and the drive is nice to get there. You could take a picnic if you wanted. There's an old fashioned candy store which is nice but they also sell junk that you could get cheaper from the buck store and has nothing to do with heritage. Beware of this and avoid that if you can as it's an unnecessary part of a day like that. The prices for food aren't bad in the little restaurant. Again, the enthusiasm of the story tellers and volunteers are what make this place tick. If the little tea shop is open further into the grounds, I recommend it, they use real china cups and the kids would get a kick out of it.

“Great Historic Village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

This is a recreated historic village but the buildings and furnishings are authentic (buildings were moved here from various locations) . It is not large but makes for a nice afternoon . If you like early Canadian history ,you will appreciate this heritage village .
