As you decide to give your kids the time to explore the place, it does not mean that you need to travel far. In fact, there are numerous locations, events, and activities in Hamilton that’s suitable for kids to experience within short distances. Here are a few suggestions that you may want to consider while you decide to go out on a Hamilton summer adventure with your kids.  

Rough Waterworks 

Enjoy the largest outdoor wave pools in Canada as you jump on its waves. What makes this a famous attraction is its gradual and sloped entry, which can be enjoyed by everyone regardless of abilities and ages. Experience the drops and twists of amazing tube slides and dive down waterslides that stand similar to a six-storey building. If you want to chill, you can go to one of the park’s attractions named Eazy River while you easily float down a curving stream.  


Treetop Trailing 

A summer trip in the zip line adventure park could definitely be one of those activities that your family won’t ever forget. Above a forest canopy in Binbrook Conservation Area, you can ride an exhilarating zip line or you can soar above while you trek from tree to tree. There are also “Discovery Kid Courses” that are mainly intended for mini-sized adventures with lower zip lines, balance logs, and wood bridges. The kids would like to discover the obstacle courses, tunnels, and slides at Treewalk Village. 


Westfield Heritage Village 

Discover 35 cautiously renovated buildings in this living history museum together with interpreters who lead the exhibitions on everything from blacksmithing to butter churning. Your family can take a few classic vacation pictures and climb over a vintage train.  


African Lion Safari 

Explore one of a kind experience that the whole family will love. Think about observing more than 1,000 various types of animals and birds from the entire world. Playful monkeys, herds of giraffes, and pride of lions roam free in this Safari. You can visit Pet’s Corner for your kids to see deer, goats, alpacas, and other animals up close. They can also relax at the Misumu Bay Wet Play Area that has jets, slides, and sprinklers. There are daily presentations as well that your kids will truly enjoy, such as Elephant swims and Birds of Prey Flying Demo.  


 Royal Botanical Gardens 

Commemorate that beautiful summer weather together with your family at the largest botanical gardens in Canada. Consume some energy as you explore majestic nature sanctuaries, gardens, and hikes and enjoy smelling the flowers. One of the best botanical gardens in Canada is the Rock Garden. This garden is shaped similarly to a “bowl” that has snake-like pathways. This is naturally an ideal playground for children—with plenty of plants, trees, and rocks to navigate. If your kids are searching a magical world of pixies, gnomes, and fairies, then the Enchanted Garden Weekend is a must-see which happens every year.
