Devil’s Punchbowl conservation area in Hamilton reopens after two weeks of closure
Published on September 3, 2022 at 10:30 a.m.
Starting today (September 3), residents are being asked to visit Devil’s Punchbowl Conservation Area in Hamilton again after a car left the platform two weeks ago and caused a closure.
The Hamilton Conservation Authority has announced that the area will reopen to the public, with only the viewing platform remaining closed.
Parking fees in the conservation area have been reduced to $5 per day to compensate for the continued closure of the viewing platform.
The car accident that caused the closure was first reported by Hamilton Fire Department August 19 around 5:30 p.m.
Reports indicate that a car overran the edge of the viewing platform and fell several hundred meters into the ravine below.
There was only one person inside the vehicle, an adult male who was pronounced dead at the scene.
