Mohawk Lake District Plan

The City of Brantford's Mohawk Lake District is located in the southeast part of Brantford and includes Mohawk Park, Mohawk Canal, and the 50-acre property that was home to the former Massey Ferguson and Cockshutt Plow farm equipment factories. There is a lot of unique history here! Our goal is to bring new activities and land uses to this area to create an exciting destination for people to visit, explore and celebrate festivals and events. 

Along with revitalizing the land uses in this area, the City has also studied options to improve the environmental quality of Mohawk Lake and Mohawk Canal. Improving the Lake and Canal is a separate project led by the City’s Engineering Services. Learn more about the Mohawk Lake and Mohawk Canal Cleanup and Rehabilitation project by visiting the project page.

The Mohawk Lake District Plan Vision is:

Mohawk Lake District will be…
A welcoming place for residents, families and visitors of all ages to explore, shop, eat, learn, and gather. Parks and trails along Mohawk Lake and Canal and throughout the District will provide a beautiful and healthy way to connect with nature. Mohawk Lake District will be where we honour the past, but also a place to be inspired for the future. As a popular destination where history, culture, recreation, and tourism meet, Mohawk Lake District will be a place of pride in the community.
