Flamborough, Ontario

Flamborough was first inhabited by the Neutral and First Nations Indians. A First Nations gravesite is found on the border of the former Beverly and West Flamborough Townships. After the American Revolution in 1783 and the creation of Upper Canada, land at the western end of Lake Ontario was surveyed and organized into townships, which included East Flamborough, West Flamborough and Beverly.

Much of Flamborough is located atop the Niagara Escarpment with the Bruce Trail passing through it. The Beverly Swamp, located in the western part of the former Beverly Township, is another important physiographic area.

Flamboro Downs Raceway is set on 220 acres on Highway #5 west, between highways 6 and 8, Flamboro Downs has grown substantially since its April 1975 opening. Races are held five evenings a week every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting at 4 P.M. A typical Flamboro Downs live race card will include at least 10 or 11 races, often more.
