"This park is probably where i’ve spent the most time shooting, so many sunsets and sunrises, it’s a great place during the summer to take a stroll and catch some views. If you happen to find yourself in the area on a Wednesday , Hamilton’s very own Jonny Blonde sets up the food truck and has amazing food with an amazing view. But don’t take my word for it here’s a video i created for “Dinner with a view"
used under PUBLIC DOMAIN. The Sam Lawrence Park sits on the high ground overlooking Hamilton and the coast. The attractive park is easily accessible as it’s only a short drive from downtown."

"Buttermilk Falls could be considered a hidden gem but it’s far from hidden as it sits under a bridge on Mountain Brow Blvd near Limeridge Rd on the East mountain. It is more correct to say it is just overshadowed by the more popular Albion Falls which is less than 1 minute up the road by car. Buttermilk Falls is approximately 75 feet high (23 metres) and runs almost year round."
"Continuing to head west, we had to make a stop for one of the most popular waterfalls in the whole area: Albion Falls. Honestly, it did not disappoint. This massive waterfall (seen from a distance if you park where we did) is made up of many little “steps” and layers so the water cascades down and down into the pool below."
"This park has a little bit of everything, making it the perfect location for a quick outing for the kids to burn some energy or a longer outing with picnic lunch. Being close to the beach means being able to build a sand castle or throw some rocks in the lake. Access to a wading pool means the kids can still go swimming without having to go in the lake."

"Crumbuns is best in class across pretty much every category: inventiveness, variety, quality, service, and value. You can’t go wrong with one of their namesake crumbuns (like coffee cake, but good), empire cookies, or pizza rolls, but their home run is the mini cheesecakes. A rotating mix, they all have an incredible crust, sweet cheesecake base, and unique flavours."
