Fergus and Elora

Belwood Lake Conservation Area

Belwood Lake was created in 1942 with the construction of the Shand Dam, the first dam in Canada built solely for water control purposes. Conservation area visitors can stand on the top deck of the dam and see the vista of the Grand River valley below. A stairway along the face of the dam allows visitors to walk down to its base. The flow from the dam is used to generate hydroelectricity.

8282 Wellington County Rd. 18, RR #4
Fergus, ON   N1M 2W5

It cost us $6 each to get in

We walked along The Elora Cataract Trailway
but we walked on it for 2 kilometres
and than 2 kilometres back

The 47 kilometre (29 mile) trail links the Grand and Credit watersheds and follows the old Canadian Pacific railroad bed.

  1. Elora and Fergus look like little gems. My kids would love the dam. Will have to see how close they are to us. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you for checking out my blog and it is a very nice place to walk around and check out. It matters where you are from in Ontario for the distance to get here. As we are from Hamilton and it took about an hour and half to get here.
