Binbrook is a small community in the southeast side of the city of Hamilton. Prior to joining the Hamilton amalgamation, Binbrook lent its name to the second half of the Glanbrook township made up of Mt. Hope, Binbrook, and Glanford. The township ultimately dissolved when the City of Hamilton was created, but it remains a distinct community for most municipal statistics. The area is known for the Binbrook Conservation Area that serves as a park and water destination on Lake Niapenco.
