With the increased number of visitors, many vehicles are parking adjacent to waterfalls and in surrounding neighbourhoods, leading to increased traffic congestion and safety issues. Illegally parked cars can prevent emergency vehicles and crews from accessing waterfall areas for a rescue.
Residents should be aware that vehicles not parked in designated areas will be ticketed as part of an ongoing proactive parking enforcement program by the City of Hamilton.
