Dundas is bordered by Westdale/Ainslie Wood in West Hamilton, Ancaster, and Flamborough, and is at the western edge of Lake Ontario. The nickname “Valley Town” was from the fact that Dundas is located at the base of the Niagara Escarpment. Dundas has a large community of potters and several studio shows/walking tours in the town featuring their work each year.
Dundas offers a pretty historic downtown surrounded by breathtaking nature, the Niagara Escarpment, waterfalls, trails and great restaurants.
Highland Park , (between Governor’s Road and the conservation area) also, offers new and custom builds but is mostly known for its nice sized lots, and the close proximity to the Dundas Valley and Spring Creek Conservation Areas.
Governor’s Estates (between King Street West and Governor’s Rd.) offers most of the newest construction with larger 2 storey detached houses, and townhomes, condo apartments and features Dundas Golf and Curling Club, and J.L. Grightmire Arena.
Pleasant Valley, (between Osler Drive and almost entirely borders the Dundas Conservation Area) At the base of Ancaster, Pleasant Valley has some of the most beautiful views of the escarpment and the conservation lands surrounding it. The Hamilton Brantford Rail trail runs through this neighbourhood and you will also find University Plaza Shopping Centre in this area.
Cootes Paradise (basically everything north of Cootes Drive and King Street) This is the oldest neighborhood with beautiful century homes and cottages, 2 storey, 2.5 storey, 1.5 storey, 1 floor…just about every style you can picture. Downtown Dundas, with its full mix of quaint shops, healthy food options, unique stores, and restaurants, locally infused creative choices…you name it. Truly a great place to visit if you are in the area! Another great feature in this area is the Dundas Driving Park, at the top of Cross Street, nestled under the escarpment and the Sydenham Hill.

Dundas was given its name by the Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, John Graves Simcoe (after his friend Henry Dundas), in 1814 and was previously known as Coote’s Paradise. Some of the well known historical buildings still standing are the old Post Office built in 1913, the Carnegie Gallery built in 1910, The Collins Hotel has been around since 1841 with its exterior changed only slightly over for over 100 years until extensive renovations took place starting in 2015.
The Collins Hotel is now called The Collins Brewhouse. Stan Nowak wrote a great piece about the History of Downtown Dundas and states “Most of the buildings east of the Collins Hotel are built after 1881, due to a fire that destroyed all wooden structures east of the Collins to Cross Street. While most of the ground floors have been altered throughout the decades, the downtown’s building’s facade from the 2nd floor up and skyline remains very well-preserved from Victorian times.”
Places to Visit
A few of the MUST see and do spots include Horn of Plenty Natural Products, Mickey McGuire’s Cheese, Cumbrae’s, University Plaza, The Carnegie Gallery, Dundas Museum, Dundas Driving Park and Webster’s Falls. Dundas has a Real Estate Walk Score of 87, which falls in the “Very Walkable” range.
