Bayfront | Great Lakes Guide
Destination Icon



Bayfront Park is one of Lake Ontario's youngest waterfront spaces. The park itself was opened in 1993. It was a $9-million transformation of once industrial land into greenspace. The beach looks out over Hamilton Harbour. This giant bay was once an incredibly lush ecosystem but heavy use and fill by industry over the last century has left it one of the most environmentally challenged parts of Lake Ontario. As local government and residents work to restore the bay, places like Bayfront Park appear.

Oh, and you *may* want to know that there have been (very) occasional sightings of a crpytid - so keep your eyes peeled for Lake Ontario's own lake monster.
