Haldimand County is where the waters of the Southern Grand River meet Lake Erie – offering visitors the experience of both “Grand River Country” and “Ontario’s South Coast.”
For nearly 300 years, the Grand River has been used for commerce, power and recreation. Enjoy its charm and unique local flora and fauna that stem from being part of the only Carolinian Forest pocket left in Canada. The Grand’s varied resources, its historic echoes, cultural value and uniqueness as a river system are recognized nationally and internationally with its designation as a Canadian Heritage River. -Be sure to enjoy the picturesque “Grand River Scenic Parkway” Tour Route as you make your way south along the Grand River.
