Beach Boulevard


This beach is part of a strip of sand separating Hamilton Harbour from Lake Ontario. This natural strip is known as a barrier beach, or a "Daonasedao" by the area's original inhabitants ("where the sand forms a bar"). In the early 20th- Century, this popular destination featured live jazz, a carousel, pony rides, and even a roller coaster. Beach Boulevard in Hamilton is the southern sister to Beachway Park in Burlington. It stretches south from the canal entrance to Hamilton Harbour.
