Dundas

Dundas is an historic town on the west side of Hamilton. It is actually older than Hamilton, but has merged with Hamilton and is now considered a suburb. Dundas has a vibrant downtown with specialty shops and upscale shopping as well as many beautiful homes and gardens. I currently live in Dundas, these are from last spring, in anticipation of this spring

Great pictures once again. The area looks great with the lush green lawns and bright tulips.

So Dundas used to be a separate town, then was annexed by Hamilton. It is now a neighborhood of Hamilton. Is this correct?

In 2006, the CMA of Hamilton (692.911) was slightly smaller than the CMA of Winnipeg (694,668). As of 2008, the CMA of Hamilton should now be larger since it was growing more rapidly than Winnipeg.

Hamilton's population up tick has been gaining momentum for years. If the city moves beyond the 5% in 5 years growth over the last census and moves closer to the 10% in 5 year growth of Toronto or Kitchener, it would only take 4 census periods, 2026, for Hamilton to reach the 1,000,000 mark.

This seems likely to happen as Toronto becomes more and more expensive. People are looking for quality urban alternatives. Hamilton is uniquely positioned to benefit.

xzmattzx: Dundas, along with the rest of the former Region of Wentworth, was amalgamated with Hamilton in 2001. Dundas is more like a community within Hamilton, it has a small town feel and its own identity.

canucker16: Dundas real estate is more expensive than Hamilton's. Dundas isn't necessarily expensive, but it is one of the more desirable places in the Hamilton area.

isaidso: The population figure I've quoted is the 2007 population estimate based on the 2001 census, the figure you've quoted is the raw 2006 census number, which only counts those who filled out a census form. Later this year Statistics Canada will release population estimates from the 2006 census that adjust for nonresponse (the "undercount"). It will be interesting to see how close the population estimates based on the 2006 census are to those based on the 2001 census. In reality both Hamilton's and Winnipeg's CMAs passed the 700,000 mark some time ago.

Winter is long gone, but as a final farewell, here are a couple frozen waterfalls in the Dundas area:


Some ice climbers:


In all, there are around 80 waterfalls in Hamilton.

Westdale is coming, there are already too many pictures on this page though...

it only happens when we have a prolonged cold snap, most of the winter they still flow.

When the weather warms up these waterfalls really go into overdrive with the amount of water pouring out. It's really nice.

The waterfalls were really gushing a few weeks ago when all that snow was still melting, I wish I had had time to get some pictures.
