Down by the boat launch at Fisherman’s Pier you will find the ‘Big Blue Chair’ that has been installed by the Hamilton Port Authority (HPA).

The chair is one of the first steps in HPA’s goal to make Fisherman’s Pier a more welcoming gateway to the city. This new addition to the area is a great spot to sit and watch the ships or take a photo by the water.

“The idea started as a fun, interactive initiative to build awareness and pride in our port city,” said Sharon Clark, Community Relations Manager at HPA. “We are so pleased with how it turned out and hope the community enjoys this new space.”

The idea for a bright blue, extra-large Muskoka chair was brought to life by HPA’s carpenter Ray.

HPA is planning more changes to make Fisherman’s Pier a more welcoming place to enjoy Hamilton Harbour, so look for more aesthetic improvements coming soon!
