Ok ... we've talked about Dundurn Castle, Bayfront Park and this is yet another part of that day-trip experience! The tugboat you see is real and the kids will love it. It forms the centrepiece of a play area and is a regular destination our grandson asks to visit.

Pier 4 is great, lots to do for families with small children,couples looking for a romantic stroll, or friends looking for somewhere to go on a warm day. Certain parts don't feel as landscaped as in Bayfront Park but that's part of the charm.

I find the park is a great place for kids and adults alike and down by the water I find it to be relaxing.

Walking the paths along the water is very relaxing. Posting some pictures. Saw what we thought might be a mink. Lots of waterfowl to be seen.

Endless walking paths and green spaces. Accessible and free. Any amount of time could be spent enjoying the waterfront, art installations, meals etc.

Wonderful place to take family for picnics. Waterpark, lots of kids activities, huge boat for kids to climb around inside. Love that you can catch the bus downtown and it takes you straight there.

We had a Hamilton Civic Hospitals Luncheon today at this Yacht Club. The Club is right on the water and is beautifully appointed. There is a large pool here as well as several indoor eating areas and outdoor area. They made a special menu for our group and the consensus from everyone was very favorable.

Nice little park with a big ship play structure and a splash pad during summer. There is a skate link beside William coffee in winter and they have rental skates! Just bring another layer because it's always windy and can be chilly even a middle of summer!
