Background

Bruce Park contains various amenities including: two baseball diamonds, a washroom/storage building and a large open space in the southern end of the park. The open space is also used for volunteer run skating in the winter. Two basketball half-courts are located in the central portion of the park while a playground with two play structures and swings occupy the north portion of the park.

The park also includes an asphalt walkway to the playground, picnic tables and trash containers. During the summer months, Bruce Park is also home to the City’s Supie Program which offers free morning and afternoon drop-in activities (active games and crafts) for 6-12 year olds. For more information see www.hamilton.ca/parks-recreation/recreation/supie.
