Bayfront Park Trail

Bayfront Park, one of Hamilton's waterfront parks, is located at the foot of Harbourfront Drive east of Bay Street North (by Simcoe Street West). The park boasts a number of features including a multi-use asphalt pathway 1.482 km in length by 6 m wide. The path - popular for in-line skating, cycling, walking, and jogging - connects with the nearby Pier 4 Park by the Macassa Bay walkway, and the new Hamilton Harbour Waterfront Trail.

Users enjoy views of the surrounding harbour area and access to the water's edge, naturalized areas of wildflowers, shrubs and trees, a free public boat launch, numerous benches and picnic tables, a natural grass amphitheatre, a parking lot and public washrooms. An expansive lawn area makes this park ideal for special events. Please use the trail responsibly and with caution.

Cyclists and in-line skaters must yield to pedestrians and give audible warning when passing.
