Waterfront Trail re-opening today

Hamilton, ON - August 21, 2017 - The City of Hamilton will officially re-open the Waterfront Trail between Bayfront Park and Princess Point this morning, Monday, August 21.

The trail was closed to the public on April 30, 2017. It has sustained serious damage in some areas. As a result, trail users will now see a number of signs marking stretches with a narrowed pathway or potential hazards. All trail users are asked to respect the new warning signs and keep away from the areas currently blocked by the 550 metres of new fencing.

The City is working with shoreline erosion experts to assess the condition of the trail and determine the long-term recommendations and cost of future repairs.
