Nestled in a valley (hence the term Dundas Valley) below the Niagara Escarpment Dundas is a terrific bedroom community. Like Ancaster, Dundas offers a mix of newer housing development and older more mature areas including Downtown Dundas. Downtown Dundas has that "old town feel" and is a very walkable area featuring many quaint shops, restaurants, an Art Gallery and has even been the site for major film production.
My favourite part of Dundas is the Hamilton to Brantford Rail Trail which offers absolutely breathtaking natural scenery it also connects with the Bruce Trail and Dundas Valley Conservation area. Dundas is ideal area for outdoor enthusiasts and those with an active lifestyle that enjoy running, cycling or hiking with its numerous trails. I love running on the Rail Trail it truly is amazing I frequently see deer strolling literally a few feet from me!
This Neighbourhood is surrounded geographically by the Dundas Valley and Spring Creek Conservation Areas. The area features older homes built in approximately the 1960's and 70's many with generously sized treed lots and some backing onto protected conservation lands. You will also find Mid-Century Modern architectural style homes in this neighbourhood featuring large windows and flat or sloped roofs. Take a drive down Little John Rd to see some examples of these. There also older character homes built in approximately the 1920's, 30's and 40's in the neighbourhood some on South St West, Hillside Ave S and Tweedsmuir Avenue.
