Queen Elizabeth Park


Hamilton's most popular and beautiful public park was once the private garden of William Perot, a wealthy merchant. Today its tree-shaded benches, rock gardens, creeper-covered trellises and mosaic pathways are the favorite refuge of office workers at lunchtime. Enter through the moon gate on Queen St.
