Even though the Conservation Area has closed for the season, you can still take advantage of a nature walk by using the entrance off of Tynside Road which is at the west end of the Lake.

Please remember to be safe and maintain a 2m distance from others and also wear your mask when required.

Facts about Binbrook Conservation Area:

The Binbrook Conservation Area is a 396-hectare (978 acre) tract of land owned and operated by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority. Of this area, 174 hectares (430 acres) is covered by picturesque Lake Niapenco. The area was purchased by the NPCA in 1968. The lake was formed after completion of the dam that was built in 1971.

Once a narrow waterway, Lake Niapenco was created in 1971 with the damming of the Welland River, and Binbrook Conservation Area preserved the land around it. Augmenting water flow in the Welland River, the reservoir also sports fish and many waterfowl not seen in urban areas including Osprey, Bald Eagles and ducks. A day at Binbrook is like a day at the cottage, but close to home. For the family, the swimming beach, spray pad, play area and picnic facilities make for a full day of fun. Explore nature on the trails and from observation platforms and see if you can spot some of the local wildlife. Bring or rent a rowboat, paddle boat, canoe or kayak and experience Binbrook from the water. A paddle along the tranquil shores of one of the few inland lakes in the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority’s watershed is a rare pleasure. Binbrook Conservation Area is known throughout the area as the hot spot for fishing.

Open from Jan-Mar for ice fishing, ice conditions permitting. Please contact the park or visit npca.ca for updates on ice conditions
