Glanbrook is a blend of small town character with a diversified economy and proximity to all the amenities of the big city. Including the towns of Binbrook and Mt. Hope, Glanbrook now encompasses 75 acres and houses the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport. It boasts employers in industrial, retail and service companies, as well as in the traditional agricultural sector. This community of 11,000 is growing by leaps and bounds as city-weary home buyers are drawn to the area. Major new housing developments, such as the Binbrook Fairgrounds project, are attracting young families. However, the small town character remains in gracious old homes and acres of farmland, as well as nearby conservation areas and nature parks right in residents own backyard. The Binbrook Conservation Area, for example, is a 978 acre tract of land. Owned by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority, it includes the large Lake Niapenco, which is surrounded by open meadows and hardwood forests with many walking trails. Amalgamated into the new City of Hamilton in 2001, Glanbrook itself was brought into existence through a 1974 merger of the townships of Binbrook and Glanford. Dating back to the mid-1800s both townships derived their character from their major industry Ð agriculture. They even held separate agricultural fairs to showcase their produce. The successor is the famous Binbrook Fall Fair this year celebrating its 153rd anniversary. The airport has also done its part to shape the character of the area. From its beginnings as a wartime training centre, Mount Hope Airport was gradually changed to a public facility, the culmination being its renaming after a local politician who had been instrumental establishing it as an international airport.
