Belwood Lake is a 12-kilometre-long reservoir created by the construction of Shand Dam in 1942. It offers excellent boating, fishing and water-skiing. A spring-fed quarry with a sandy beach is a favorite location swimming. Visitors can walk across the dam and view the reservoir waters as well as enjoy a spectacular vista of the Grand River far below.
