Sam Lawrence Park

Oh Sam Lawrence Park! It holds such a special place in my heart. As you drive past it, you may not think it seems particularly interesting. Yet, it really is. Sam Lawrence Park is on Concession Street, on top of the mountain in Hamilton. It is a beautiful park, filled with couples hand in hand and young families walking along the pathways. The garden beds are just so pretty, always lush with flowers. We enjoy going up there for picnics. It is a great place to waste a few hours. Sometimes, when I meditate, I am asked to think of a peaceful place and this is my peaceful place. This is my haven. The view over the city is stunning from Sam Lawrence Park. From the wall, you can see everything, every apartment building, every street, every boat on the lake. Even the steel factories look picturesque from Sam Lawrence Park. It is an excellent place to fully comprehend the magnitute of Hamilton. On a clear day it is possible to see Toronto; if you zoom in on the picture below, you can even see the CN Tower! As the sun begins to set the most spectacular views can be seen over the city. It is honestly beautiful. After the sun has set, the city lights come on and twinkle for as far as the eye can see. I loved living in the country, but sometimes the city can be just as beautiful!
