The city is looking to construct a brand new viewing platform at one of Hamilton’s most iconic waterfall destinations; and they’re asking locals to weigh in on the proposal.
A survey published on the city website is inviting Hamilton residents to provide community feedback on the design and construction of a new south viewing platform overlooking the 19-metre Albion Falls.
Beginning today, you're invited to participate in our Albion Falls survey aimed at understanding visitor experience and to gauge resident support for a new south viewing platform.

This new south platform would be in addition to the existing north viewing platform that was originally erected by the city back in 2005, providing an easily accessible means of viewing one of Hamilton’s most striking scenic destinations.
The city is prioritizing the construction of a new south platform that provides additional safe access to viewing Albion Falls, while also preserving and maintaining the site’s natural and cultural heritage.
The proposed construction platform, worth about $1.9 million, would also include stairs and elevated boardwalks, bench seating, new signage, restoration planting and seeding, and a new East-West pedestrian pathway on Mountain Brow Boulevard.
The survey for the new Albion Falls South Viewing Platform project is available until February 22nd, 2021. Take the survey on the city website.
