Gage Park Fountain Terrace Redevelopment

Hamilton, Ontario

Gage Park has been a jewel in Hamilton since 1919. Originally designed in a Beaux Arts style by Dunington-Grubb Landscape Architects, the Park has become a social hub within the City. Festivals, lawn bowling, baseball, tennis, and horticultural marvels all have a home in Gage Park.

In 2011 the City of Hamilton retained Seferian Design Group for the Gage Park fountain terraces redevelopment project. The intent was to restore the grand entrance from Main Street into the park to its former glory. The Seferian Design Group team worked closely with historic groups, City staff, and horticultural staff to prepare a design that reflected the vision of the 1919 plan which retained the historic features and design of the park for future generations to enjoy.

Seferian Design Group successfully improved the overall safety and accessibility with new ramps connecting upper and lower terraces, enhance the lighting, and lower planting to ensure visibility into the space. Monolithic paving was also implemented to reduce instances of vandalism
