Confederation Beach Park is a 93-hectare park owned by the City of Hamilton and managed by the Hamilton Conservation Authority. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, the park features some of the best summertime activities in Hamilton. Visitors are welcome to swim in the lake, play beach volleyball, enjoy a picnic and use the trails for biking, running and leisurely strolls. Confederation Park also features various other attractions including go-karts, batting cages, mini golf, the Wild Waterworks Water Park, and great restaurants right on the beach!

Fun fact! Before Confederation Park was established in 1967 this vibrant strip was a thriving beach community filled with cottages and farms that dotted the shore line. Today, remnants of time past can still be seen along the beach! One must-see gem is ‘Baranga’s on the Beach Restaurant’ which is the old public school that once educated the children of the rural community.
