I found this online today:
I've long said that a few simple steps could bring a lot more activity and life to our waterfront.
1. A carousel. Kids love it and what better way to revitalize an area than to get kids loving it.
2. Bike rentals. Add boat/peddleboat rentals as well at our waterfront.
3. Interactive water fountains. Awesome in heat like this.
4. Cafes/eateries. More options. Hutch's and Williams are good, but it's time for more.
Also, all of these things could be done downtown too. My kids LOVE the small merry-go round in Gore Park each Christmas.
Hamilton needs to plan some small, but important steps like this instead of always focusing on massive projects.
