Waterdown is a community in Canada which since 2001 has been a community of Hamilton, Ontario.

On January 1, 2001 the new city of Hamilton was formed from the amalgamation of the Regional Municipality of Hamilton-Wentworth and its six municipalities: Hamilton, AncasterDundasFlamboroughGlanbrook, and Stoney Creek.

Waterdown was created from that part of East Flamborough Township on the edge of the Niagara Escarpment, just east of the junction of King’s Highways Nos. 5 and 6. That intersection is known as Clappison’s Corners, but continuous residential and commercial buildings between the two communities make it difficult to see any difference.

Community institutions include:

  • Waterdown District High School
  • Allan A. Greenleaf Public School
  • Flamborough Review (merged with the Flamborough Post)
  • Flamborough Family YMCA
  • 3rd Waterdown Scouting
  • Village Theatre Waterdown
  • The Waterdown East Flamborough Heritage Society
Waterdown is expanding greatly, with the recent addition of a YMCA and several commercial establishments. Because of the approval of new homes in Waterdown – at least 6,500 more houses in the near future – there are ongoing discussions regarding the planned $50 million ‘Waterdown By-Pass’, which would allow for easier access across the city. Waterdown population growth was approximately 28.9% over the years 1996 and 2001.
