Mohawk Lake District Plan

Our goal is to create an area that is an exciting place for people to visit, explore and celebrate festivals and events. 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.

The Mohawk Lake District is a unique area with a lot of history. We want to bring new activities and land uses to this area. We are developing a plan that will help guide future decisions about the types of uses you want to see in the District.

Study Process and Timeline

Study Process and Timeline

 Two public meetings and two online surveys have taken place to discuss the overall vision and redevelopment plan for the District. In June 2019, the project team will unveil the latest Draft Preferred Mohawk Lake District Plan for City Council’s consideration. The Staff Report provides a description of the community engagement results, project update and next steps. The next stage in the work program will be the completion of technical studies to confirm that there are no major issues (like traffic, noise or compatibility, etc.) that may impact the implementation of this plan.


Here’s a preview of the Draft Preferred Mohawk Lake District Plan (as of June 2019):

Mohawk Lake District Celebration

Mohawk Lake District Celebration

Our thanks to the hundreds who joined us Sunday, September 29th, 2019 at Mohawk Park to celebrate the completion of the Greenwich Mohawk Brownfield remediation project and future development of the Mohawk Lake District. In partnership with Brantford Food Bank, and part of the City’s Culture Days, the Mohawk Lake District Celebration was a journey through time as we commemorated the history of the Greenwich Mohawk Brownfield site with live music performed by Brantford's own "Brownfield."
