We receive a lot of wonderful emails from site visitors. Read below and see what some of them have to say.


My name is Kelly and I just visited your website. I really loved the beautiful pictures and all the information about each of the falls. I have lived in Hamilton for about 8 years now and I had absolutely no idea that this city had so many waterfalls! I only knew of a few (Albion, Webster's, Devil's Punch Bowl, etc.).

I found out about all the waterfalls after reading an article in the November 7th issue of the Mountain News, which wrote about Chris Ecklund's efforts to promote Hamilton as the "City of Waterfalls." It was a great article and I think this is a great way to promote Hamilton. Kudos to Chris!

I have travelled to different places throughout Ontario and the eastern provinces and have seen such beautiful landscapes, waterways, etc. Up until this past summer, I had never really thought of Hamilton as a place of natural beauty. However, as I have started to really explore this city, I have come to discover the natural beauty that exists around this area, especially around the escarpment. I am so glad to know that there are so many beautiful waterfalls. I hope to see as many of them as I can some time in the future. Thanks again for promoting the positive aspects of Hamilton and for sharing these hidden jewels with the public.

Kinda funny – I grew up near Mohawk and Mountain Brow Blvd – and as kids in the 70’s we hiked and played at Albion and Buttermilk. Now living in Barrie – it is great to see these and all the others I hiked when a kid on this site.

Thank you,
Greg Forrester

Today as I had my coffee and doing my usual RSS/Facebook/Twitter/Magnolia surf, I clicked on a Facebook ad.  Which I don’t usually do, but this one caught my attention.

It was for a Facebook Group called Hamilton- Waterfall Capital of the W orld.  I live in Hamilton and the waterfalls are one of the best kept secrets of this lovely, quirky, contradictory and paradoxical city.  So I joined.

Then my business brain kicked in and I wondered .. okay, is this a fan page, an official city page, a city page which looks like a fan page? .. so I had to look further.  The link on the Facebook page directed me to a larger site called "Hamilton, the City of Waterfalls".   It didn’t have the look and feel of a fan site .. further down I saw that it was done by a marketing company here in Hamilton.

Kudos to them .. it’s a lovely site .. nicely designed, lovely to look at.  It integrates different kinds of web applications well — blog, Facebook group, even a section called City of Waterfalls radio (the word radio is going to get my attention every time).  And it also uses mashup elements — The Weather Network embed is useful.    This would also be ideal for a Google Earth embed.  And nice use of Facebook too.

Good work, Ecklund Marketing Group.  Now I have to get out there and add some more falls to my list.

I'm so happy that this website is available – I grew up in Hamilton and have a real affection for the place.  My parents are still there and I look forward to checking out some of those waterfalls I haven’t yet visited!

I’ve always described Hamilton as “nestled between the lake and the excarpment, surrounded by wetlands and waterfalls” and people think I’m joking.  This website is pure vindication!

Thanks again, and great job
