McMaster University recognizes that the University and surrounding Hamilton area, including their nature spaces, are situated on traditional territories shared between the Haudenosaunee confederacy and Anishnaabe nations. These lands are protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum belt. The wampum uses the symbolism of a dish to represent the territory, and one spoon to represent that the people are to share the resources of the land and only take what they need.

Princess Point

Royal Botanical Gardens

Princess Point is located on the South-East corner of Cootes Paradise and is a hub of recreational activities in the area. Not only is it a great place to explore the natural landscape, it also provides a spectacular view of the Cootes Paradise Marsh and an entry point for canoeing and kayaking. The area is also a hub connecting many trail systems including the Desjardins portion of the Waterfront Trail to Bayfront Park together with the Royal Botanical Garden’s Trails through Cootes Paradise.
