Hamilton Waterfront Trail Extension
The Hamilton Waterfront Trail Extension is a ‘continuation’ of the existing Hamilton Waterfront Trail built by the City of Hamilton between Princess Point and Pier 4 Park in 2000. The 1.9km trail extension starts at Pier 4 Park and proceeds eastward, just past Pier 8, to Eastwood Park. The trail runs at or near the water’s edge, parallel to Guise Street and Dock Service Road.
The trail portion of the north and east sides of Pier 8 was funded as a joint project between the City of Hamilton, the Hamilton Port Authority and the Hamilton Waterfront Trust.
Features include: interpretative signage; connections to the Canada Marine Discovery Centre, H.M.C.S. Haida, Williams Fresh Cafe, Scoops Ice Cream Parlour, and Hamilton Harbour Tours.
The Hamilton Waterfront Trust and the City of Hamilton jointly funded the sculpture located at the corner of Pier 8: Rafaga-Unleashed by artists Edwin and Veronica Dam De Nogales, which was unveiled in 2005.
