Battlefield Park

Battlefield Park is 32 acres of field and forest, nestled at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment. It sits on the border between the cities of Stoney Creek and Hamilton and provides a welcome greenspace and access to the Bruce Trail.

When the Women's Wentworth Historical Society purchased Battlefield House in 1899, there were only four-and-a-half acres left of the original 600. That year, the ladies opened the grounds as a park. Over the years adjacent land was purchased to bring the park to its present 32 acres (15 ha.).

With its tall trees, winding stream and stretches of open space, Battlefield Park is open for the public to enjoy throughout every season of the year. Winter sees both children and adults enjoying outdoor recreation, summer brings families and friends for a picnic, and every season sees people out for a quiet walk .... all appreciating the natural beauty of the park.

The Park is an important part of Battlefield House Museum's Educational & Environmental Programs, Museum Tours, as well as our Special Events, such as the Re-enactment of the Battle of Stoney Creek.
