View Larger Map

The community of St. John's was one of the earliest inland communities in the Niagara Region. With power to run the mills from the Twelve Mile Creek the community flourished.

St. John's had one of the first schools in Upper Canada, with an attendance in 1804 of over 20 students.

Today visitors can view the magnificent St. John's Valley and pond from St. John's Conservation Area, one of the first in the area to provide wheelchair accessible boardwalks around the entire pond. The pond is also stocked in the spring with trout and fishing is a common pastime here.

Young children will especially find St. John's appealing. The pond is teaming with frogs and turtles. The wheelchair accessible boardwalk makes even strollers a possibility.
