    A great place to see fireworks and go for a walk or bike ride. Food options at either end of park. Public washrooms in 3 locations. Skate rink open year round as well.

    Often there is a festival of some kind in the summer. Other times of the year it is good to visit for a walk or quiet afternoon.

    Not your most beautiful looking beach, but my finance and I always enjoy walking/roller-blading in this area, especially with the dog. Lots of affordable things to do such as mini-putting, beach volleyball, an average water park etc. The bugs (flies, mosquitoes) can get brutal at times, so bring bug spray!

    This skating loop is a fun little family destination. There is an indoor area to tie skates and warm up and the ice rink seemed well cared for. If you are a visitor, Tim Horton’s is across the way for warm drinks.

    Anytime I am in this part of town on business and need a few minutes to park than this is the place to relax. Big enough to ewalk your dog but not really suitable for a picnic with family along with good close friends. Small parking lot in this well maintained and looked after park. It has a great view of downtown Hamilton along with Lake Ontario. Close to highways that will get you quickly arounf town. Bruce Trail is nearby which I hiked with an old OPP friend numerous years ago.

    It is pleasant in the course of downtown hustle and bustle to have a spot you can appreciate some greenery. Stretching for a couple of city blocks, the black fountain is its central feature, bookended by a statue of Queen Victoria to the west and the Gore Park Veteran's Memorial to the east. Something new to me was Veterans Place. Through various displays it recalls the Canadian contribution to various wars and peacekeeping forces.

    This new park is located just minutes away from one of the busiest streets on Hamilton mountain. The large park was set aside by the city to provide a multi use recreational area in the neighbourhood. It contains two playground areas for kids, a splash pad, tennis courts, football field and soccer pitches. Several walking trails are found in the park, some paved, some not. There is a large pond that is the central feature of the park that has become inhabited by some ducks and geese. There is a change house and washrooms and a fair bit of parking available off West 5th Street.

    The only problem that have surfaced are complaints that some people are using motorized dirt bikes on the walking trails which poses a hazard to people who are just out walking. Other than this, it is a perfect park for all people.

    While the proximity to the road and drain pipe definitely steal a bit of the natural allure theses falls would otherwise have, I can’t really complain too much. Cliffview is surrounded by lots of attractive escarpment bedrock and and great views over the Hamilton cityscape. Water flow was good when I visited, plus lots of interesting icicles ringing the escarpment wall. I like how the falls are essentially two stacked falls, as the bedrock splits them about halfway to the valley floor. A viewing platform has been setup adjacent to the park which affords visitors the best view of the falls.

    This park has a nice circular trail for walking or jogging, that also leads down into Rushdale park that consists of a playground and basketball court. It is like having two parks in one almost. TB McQueston also has a soccer field, playground and parking lot. Overall, I enjoy this park.

    There is a lot of grass here, perfect for sports. It is a huge park.

    A football makes many friends to play.

    However, most people come up the stairs and they have problems with respiration.

    From here it is not far to see the Cliff View Falls.

    Worthwhile to see!

    I live in the area and when my nephew comes over to visit I often take him to this park. It's a nice park with a decent sized playground with slides and swings for the kids and a covered gazebo-like structure with a picnic table. In the summer there is a splash pad and the city of Hamilton has what's called a "Supie" who supervises kids and arranges some activities during the week.

    During a vacation to visit Canadian friends with some friends from home, we all went to Dundurn Castle and then went next door to Harvey Park.

    Admission to the park is free.

    One of our Canadian friends talked to us about the historical figure the park was named for as well as the differences between Canadian government and American government.

    This city park, formerly known as Burlington Heights Park, was renamed Harvey Park to honor Sir John Harvey. There is a historical marker dedicated to him that tells his story. In the War of 1812, then Lt. Colonel John Harvey, a British soldier, was a hero at Lundy's Lane, Fort Erie, and the Battle of Stoney Creek. He left for Stoney Creek from this location with 700 of his men. He later held colonial administrator positions in New Brunswick, Newfoundland, and Nova Scotia.

    On its other side, the park is close to and linked to the Hamilton Harbour Waterfront Trail, overlooking Hamilton Harbour, by stairs near the High Level Bridge. I would have liked some extra time to explore that, but we had a schedule to keep.

    Activities at the park including walking, running, hiking, and picnicking.

    After walking through this park on our way back from visiting Dundurn Castle, we had an outdoor picnic here before heading out for afternoon sightseeing.

    We rate Harvey Park at 4.0.

    They have swings and a huge playground. They are all in blue. The kids that were there were happy.

    There are benches to sit on and a shelter.

    Worthwhile to see!
