As we approach Fall and the popular season of colours, I want to remind folks that the Devil’s Punch bowl Conservation Area is within a Special Enforcement Parking Area wherein there is no parking along 1st Rd East and along Ridge Road.
This special parking enforcement area was implemented after months of illegal parking that was putting pedestrians at risk as they were walking along Ridge Rd. Most of these roads only have a gravel shoulder with little room for pedestrians to walk safely if people park illegally. In addition, we were witnessing frequent stunt driving by motorcycles as well as aggressive driving by cars.
As you can see from the pictures above, the area is well signed to ensure that drivers are well aware of the special parking enforcement area.
If you are visiting Devil’s Punch Bowl, please park in the Conservation Area parking lot. I hope you enjoy the fall colours in Hamilton.
