Model Of Planned Albuoy’s Point Enhancements

July 4, 2019 | 22 Comments

The City plans to improve the City park at Albuoy’s Point with seating areas, shade elements, public artwork and a new layout, and said a model of the redesign has been installed in the reception area of the Corporation offices at City Hall, and the City welcomes comments from the public.

A spokesperson said, “Since 2017, the City has had a vision for improvements to the City park at Albuoy’s Point – to make it more dynamic, more user-friendly and ultimately a unique destination.

“When artist Bill Ming’s sculpture, Against da Tide, which adorned the sidewalk in front of HSBC in that location, was donated to the City, plans for a revitalized park, to include the artwork, were envisioned.

“Improving upon elements already in the park, the City will look to install improved seating areas, shade elements, public artwork as well as a new layout.

“The redevelopment will lend itself to public events and provide entertainment opportunities. It will also encapsulate aspects of the Bermuda triangle, a story that reverberates around the world, one of myths and legends, that has put Bermuda in the global spotlight. The reinvigorated space will be known as Point Pleasant Park.

“A model of the redesign has been installed in the reception area of the Corporation offices at City Hall. The City welcomes comments from the public as it strives to bring a refreshing look to a well-worn public park and provide an enhanced, energized space for all to enjoy.”

    I wish we would stop this tacky and ridiculous pandering to the ‘Bermuda Triangle’ notion.

    • Unbelievable says:

      I 100% agree. It’s so tacky. Pandering to a non-issue that no one in Bermuda ever mentions.

    • Seascape says:

      I agree. Some people will not come to Bermuda because they are afraid of the “Bermuda Triangle”. Give it up already.

  3. John Lee says:

    I’m all for “improvements” but Please don’t take away the parking spots. Feel like the COH should gather feedback from the public before taking away parking which directly impacts the average person.

    • Um Um Like says:

      We could just turn the entire place into a waterfront parking lot. It seems to be the theme of town.

    • Seascape says:

      What were they thinking…No parking and the design is blah…

    • sandgrownan says:

      Park at Bulls Head?

    • Zoe Mulholland says:

      The parking will be reinstated when the Point House redevelopment is complete.

  4. wahoo says:

    Well did anyone seek input from the bums?

  5. Jason S says:

    Great a big patch of grass in the middle with no trees. Taking away existing trees. There will be less shade which will make it worse than it is now. We need more shade in our public spaces… not less

    • Zoe Mulholland says:

      More shade elements are being added, not taken away. The existing trees will be incorporated into the new design.

    • Kathy says:

      Agree 100%. No water fountain and only 1 bench. What is going to happen to all the existing benches? Where should people sit down, on the lawn? Not very well thought out at all. No consideration for use of space for the people… Shade and places to sit!

  6. Hair says:

    Where is the old bank of Bermuda? lol

    • Hello says:

      Same place it’s been since the early 60’s—-now being renovated.

    • PBanks says:

      Behind the proposed park. Looks like the road will be modified. But as previous persons have said, car parking will be gone and there appears to be fewer shade-giving trees.

  7. Unbelievable says:

    Oh and that top drawing looks like it was done with a box of crayons.

  8. Giddy up says:

    They are going to do whatever they want. You can voice your opinion all you like. They are not going to listen. I’ve tried talking to them & the person laughed & said there’s more to come.

  9. Question says:

    I hope there’s a bit more space for bums to hang out, get drunk, swear loudly, and urinate. I believe that’s the main function of Hamilton’s prime waterfront these days.

  10. Robin says:

    What about making the triangle suitable as an amphitheater with a stage at the northern point of the triangle?
