“Beautiful place to hike!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

I'm fortunate enough to work nearby and in the warmer weather I have my lunch in this park most weekdays. The grounds are well kept and renovations are wrapping up in the park.

Staff members dress in period costume, everything from housemaids to militia men, depending on the day.

The trail leads up the escarpment to Devil's Punchbowl. The hike up isn't easy, but you're rewarded with a great view at the top.

Lots of open land and a pavillion to picnic at. It's so peaceful and green that you'll forget that you're in the city!

“Another hidden gem in the Hamilton area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Canada owes a lot to this patch of ground, where the invading US forces were soundly trounced and sent packing back across the Niagara River. There is a respectful gravesite for the fallen of both sides across the street that should be seen as part of the visit. If you catch the right weekend, there are reenactors and encampments on the grounds. Go!

“Our history visited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The history of the war of 1812 is outlined here. This touches my heart as Canada is what it is because of a battle that occurred here in Stoney Creek. We have a place that explains and shows us part of the war. Please take the time to witness why we are Canadian and proud.
