Visitors of Hamilton’s waterfront can walk along the water’s edge.
The boardwalks officially opened at the end of 2022 as part of the $140 million redevelopment project to transform West Harbour into a vibrant, mixed-use, transit-supportive, and pedestrian-friendly attraction.
The city has referred to West Harbour as “the jewel on Hamilton’s waterfront.”
The boardwalk was the next step toward reconstructing Piers 5, 6, and 7. The project includes a village and public piazza at the foot of James St. North “for public, commercial and cultural uses.”
Ongoing work at the West Harbour includes projects at Macassa Bay, Central Park, Barton-Tiffany, Bayfront Park Beach, and the Marina.
A trail for recreational uses right at the edge of the Macassa Bay shoreline is planned, with a private entrance for Yacht Club members. The city says it will also create a wetland area or natural aquatic habitats.
Central Park redevelopment will include an accessible play structure, ball diamond, tennis courts, multi-purpose courts, a splash pad, asphalt pathways, sheltered areas, and a SoBi Hamilton Hub at the park entrance on Bay Street North.
The Barton-Tiffany area is earmarked for mixed-use, commercial and residential land projects.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
