About the Windemere Basin (www.hamiltonwaterfront.com/2011/11/01/windemere-basin):
The Hamilton Waterfront Trust with assistance from the City of Hamilton and other provincial and federal agencies facilitated the restoration and development of the lands surrounding Windermere Basin. The purpose of the development project was to conduct restoration of the local ecosystem and provide natural wildlife areas and parklands for passive recreational use. The project site consisted of approximately 25 hectares of reclaimed lands surrounding the Basin that were created as a result of extensive infilling that occurred from the 1950′s to the 1990′s.
In 2007 Windermere Basin was restored as an estuarine ecosystem, providing a sanctuary for wildlife and passive recreational use. With improved water quality and habitat regeneration, Windermere Basin is a ‘healed’ area; a source of community pride; a place where citizens and visitors can witness the ongoing regeneration of the area to a healthier environment.
Windermere Basin is now a green area in an industrial waterfront. As a unique feature of the eastern gateway to the City of Hamilton, the Basin is an area where people can learn and understand about the area’s natural and cultural history. Trails will connect the Basin with other natural and cultural attractions in the surrounding area, thus facilitating public access and linkages across the entire Hamilton Waterfront. 

This cache is hidden within the Windemere Basin "park". There is a trail here that provides view of the Windemere Basin and also travels a loop around the park. Parking is available in a small lot off Eastport drive, but the gate may be closed through the winter months.

This cache was originally placed 19 June 2013 and listed on the Garmin site; I checked the cache today, replaced the logsheet, and it will now be listed exclusively on OCNA.

I checked on this cache today since there has been some recent landcaping changes - and sure enought the cache and the tree in which it was placed were both missing. Replaced the cache a few tree's over. updated the coordinates. Otherwise, it;s the same hide. Nice time of year to visit the area - lot of active tree swallows at the many bird houses. go swallows go, eat all those flying insects!
