Finding a quiet area to sit and relax for a while, that too in Bermuda's busy city of Hamilton would perhaps never come to someone's mind thus far. No longer so. Hamilton city now does have a nice wonderful space right on Front Street and overlooking the harbor where a tired visitor or a local can relax. The corner of the parking lot (the number one shed on Front Street), has been reopened as an open space for pedestrians.
The Waterfront Square is clearly identifiable by the giant compass which was hand painted on the ground and now remains there as a colorful piece of art on the Hamilton waterfront. It's an ideal place to relax, have a snack and refreshing beverages while enjoying the harbor view. You will also see many tourists and locals carrying their lunch packs and enjoying their meals here.
This is also a good place to take a break before you take your ferry for the dockyard or while coming to Hamilton from the dockyard by ferry.
Waterfront Square Bermuda
The Mayor of the Hamilton City, Charles Gosling had formally opened the square on June 16th 2010. He called the area, a "wonderful, open, recreational space.... All of this is in keeping with our vision to continue to find ways to beautify the city and effectively use space to enhance the lives of those who live, work and visit Hamilton" .
