Hamilton has one shot at connecting the downtown with the harbour front.

This group is to be commended for their efforts in producing this alternative west harbour development concept.

If, however, this proposal cannot be implemented due to cost, time and/or the unwillingness of CN to sell the land to the City of Hamilton in 2018, Hamilton should still strive to create a welcoming green space by expanding Central Park from its southern boundary at Cannon and Caroline Streets to Stuart Street and begin negotiating with CN and Southern Ontario Railway for the right to build a signature pedestrian bridge (along the lines of the Helix bridge in Seattle) over the railway lands to connect the expanded Central Park with Bayfront Park.
