Beautiful Bell's Lake...

The word verdant comes to mind when seeing this scene on the east side of Highway 27, halfway between Nobleton and Schomberg.

  1. My Dad called this the "Bottomless Lake" when my brothers and I were growing up. Not sure why. Anyone have any ideas?

  2. Hi David. I started swimming in Bell's Lake, with friends, over 60 years ago as a young teenager. I never heard the "bottomless" story, but I remember touching bottom ... close to the shore. I never did swim out to the centre of the lake. It was a really popular spot in the 1950s.

    1. OK, thanks. He grew up in Vaughan but we had family all through that region. I wondered if it was a local folklore thing or simply a story a Dad would tell three wide eyed boys.
