Its tranquil, small-town charm and variety of amenities — most of which are just a five-minute drive from home — have caught the attention of couples and families in all stages of life. And those who move there soon discover that they don’t want to leave, choosing instead to put down permanent roots and grow their families, interests, and businesses within the town.Â

You Want a Balance Between Urban & Suburban Living
Set in one of the most highly preserved areas of the Niagara Escarpment, Binbrook enjoys a unique geographic advantage that keeps its residents close and connected to nature. The network of flowing rivers and lush parks and trails that fill the Escarpment are always within reach, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t without convenience. Binbrook’s quaint downtown is lined with locally-owned shops and restaurants, and even more urban amenities — including live theatres, concert halls and art galleries — are located 15 minutes away in Hamilton’s core.
You Enjoy Eating at Great Local Restaurants
No matter what food you’re craving, a myriad of authentic cuisines and restaurants line Binbrook’s main street. Binbrook Pizza, The Brook Family Restaurant and Kohinur Indian Cuisine are among local favourites, as is the aptly named Binbrook Grill, which is loved for its delicious pub-style fare and charming ambience.
You Want to Make the Most of Time Spent Outdoors
Binbrook enjoys an unbeatable proximity to nature that makes it a great choice for those who love spending time outside. Spend leisure time exploring the breathtaking scenery of local trails and waterfalls, or else unwind on the water, with Lake Niapenco — the largest inland lake in the region — under 10 minutes from Binbrook’s downtown. The lake is a popular spot for fishermen, wakeboarders, canoers, kayakers, and swimmers.
And for kids who love adventure, be sure to take them to FunSplash Sports Park, which is known for its obstacle course on the water. Also nearby, Treetop Trekking offers fun forest adventures for all ages and abilities.
You Enjoy a Mix of Local & Big Box Shopping
Binbrook’s commitment to local living has seen the continued success of resident-owned shops and restaurants, as well as artisan markets. The Binbrook Farmers’ Market, open every Saturday from June through October, features fresh produce, meats, breads, cheeses and more from a variety of local vendors. Likewise, the family-owned-and-operated Punch Bowl Market is a favourite spot for residents to pick up fresh flowers and baked goods.
And for when a more urban adventure calls, the town’s nearness to Hamilton means that big-box shopping opportunities at CF Lime Ridge, Eastgate Square, Heritage Hill Shopping Centre, and South Hamilton Square are never far from home.
