Welcome to the Town of Flamborough

It is a former town near and current community in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
For most of its existence before amalgamation with Hamilton in 2001, it was in fact a trio of sparsely settled townships. The largest suburban community is the former Town of Waterdown containing perhaps one third of its thirty thousand or so inhabitants.
Other Flamborough communities, in approximate order of population, include: Greensville, Carlisle, Freelton, Rockton, Lynden, Clappison's Corners, Millgrove, Christie's Corners, Sheffield, Copetown, Kirkwall, Valens, Mountsberg and Westover.
Much of Flamborough is located on top of the Niagara Escarpment; thus the Bruce Trail passes through the area. Although relatively flat in the south, a slow but steady incline is observable until reaching the Wellington County line which is the approximate height of land dividing two watersheds. The Beverly Swamp, located in the western part of the former Beverly Township, is another important physiographic area.
Notable natural attractions operated by the Hamilton Region Conservation Authority include:
Westfield Heritage Centre, a living history museum containing pioneer era buildings moved from other locations in Wentworth County.
Valens Conservation Area
You can also strap on your skates and take a few spins around the cleared skating rink on Valens' reservoir.
Explore Valens' 10-kilometers of trails, groomed for cross-country skiing (when conditions permit) or by foot. Track Valens' animal residents in the snow or just enjoy the beauty of the area in winter.
Christie Lake, swimming during sommer months and stocked fishing at its reservoir.
Spencer Gorge and Webster's Falls Conservation Area, spectacular view of the falls and city below while hiking on the Bruce Trail.
