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

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
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!
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
Thanks again, and great job
