Waterdown “on the Hill” really has it all!

Welcome to the Waterdown BIA website. Waterdown is a quaint and quiet village with all the amenities of a modern city within easy reach. We are a rapidly growing community nestled at heart of the Golden Horseshoe between Hamilton to the west and Burlington and the GTA to the east, above the QEW.   Perched atop the Niagara Escarpment, Waterdown residents live an idyllic lifestyle of small town warmth mixed with modern conveniences.   Shopping, dining, theatre and cultural events are available year round.   We are just a short drive away from Oakville and Burlington, Milton, Guelph and the rest of Hamilton.   Come and be charmed by the friendly ambiance of our local shops, spas and eateries, and take part in the many family-oriented events Waterdown has to offer.
