Nestled in between Dundas and Central Hamilton, the West End is home to Hamilton's prestegious McMaster University, McMaster Children's Hospital and Medical Centre, Westdale Village, Churchill Park, and Princess Point, the South West, best known for Locke Street and the Durand and Kirkendall Neighbourhoods, and the North West home to Hess Village and Dundurn Castle.

old westdaleCinemas, automobiles, radios and airplanes! Bootleggers, booze, flappers and jazz! The twenties seemed to usher in a new modern age. Along with it came the Westdale community. Westdale was intended to function as Canada's first planned community. In 1923, politicians and realtors gathered for the annual "Name the Neighbourhood" contest at the Royal Connaught Hotel in Downtown Hamilton. Rev. Canon Percival Lawson Spencer entered "Westdale" into the competition and won the contest along with $200, which today ads up to $2,800 after inflation. Founded during the Roaring Twenties, Westdale contained all the attributes of an ideal neighbourhood in which to raise a family. There was a shopping district, schools (George R Allan School built in 1927, Westdale Collegiate in 1930 & the originalMcMaster University Campus in 1930), green space & parks (Sunken Gardens, 1930) and a very distinctive oval pattern for the tree lined streets in the neighborhood. The original design came about as the automobile revolution was just starting, so great care was taken to make sure it met the needs of residents to be able to walk or take transit easily.
