Ward 5

Located just east of the Redhill area, Ward 5 is an urban ward situated in the lower city below the Niagara Escarpment (often referred to as the Mountain). Bordered by the Escarpment to the south, the Red Hill Valley/Expressway to the west and the waters of Lake Ontario and Hamilton Harbour to the north.

The eastern ward boundary follows along Gray Road from the escarpment to Lake Ontario. Ward 5 also includes the beach strip up to the Canal Bridge and the ship canal which separates the cities of Hamilton and Burlington. It is also home to St. Joseph’s Community Health Centre, Eastgate Square, Battlefield Park, Confederation Park and King’s Forest.  

Ward 5 is located within the Hamilton Conservation Authority watershed.
