Point Pleasant Park at Albouy's Point
Located next to Hamilton’s ferry terminal, Point Pleasant Park has always been a popular place among locals and tourists who wish to eat their lunch by the picturesque Hamilton Harbour. The waterside steps leading down to the lower dock are a regular ‘passenger collection point’ among the boating community.
Point Pleasant Park is home to The Jervis Bay Memorial which honours the memory of the men of H.M.S. Jervis Bay who gave their lives in action against a German raider in the North Atlantic on November 5th, 1940. It is also home to the Bill Ming sculpture, Against da Tide, which was commissioned by HSBC Bank Bermuda as a public art sculpture. It is of timeless and contemporary design with historical reference to both Bermuda and its people.
The park was recently refurbished with upgrades which included improved seating and shade, up-lighting installation, and the revitalization of the pedestrian areas and waterfront. In 2022, the City of Hamilton officially marked Albuoy’s Point at Point Pleasant Park as the Northern point of the Bermuda Triangle. A bronze plaque has been set into the ground officially marking this location. The park’s walkway was reconfigured into a triangular shape to pay homage to this designation.
