Hamilton Waterfront

Welcome to our West Harbour

The Waterfront & Shoreline is one of the City’s strategic priorities and involves improving, maintaining and enhancing our waterfront and shoreline by providing:

  • Clean and sustainable parks, recreational spaces, trails and amenities for all residents
  • Neighbourhood planning
  • Opportunities for investment from the business community

Hamilton’s waterfront redevelopment has a central role in enhancing the economic, social, cultural and recreational opportunities in Hamilton. Waterfront redevelopment positions us well to meet the cultural and recreational needs of a growing city and revitalizes the area by enhancing our economic potential.
