Over $75,000 spent on fencing at Albion Falls and people are still ignoring safety warning and trespassing signs …

Even with the beautifully built viewing platforms, people still try to get a closer look at one of Hamiltons most beautiful waterfalls by climbing fences and ignoring warning trespassing signs.

After 25 rope rescues in 2016, some with serious injuries and a number in 2017 the City of Hamilton spent over $75,000 fencing the area around Albion Falls while enforcing increased ticketing of trespassers. To date, there has been over 50 tickets issued at $135 each so before crossing that fence use common sense and make sure no one is looking … That was me being funny … Common sense would be … “There is a reason the fence was put there and most importantly for your safety!!!!”
