Locke Street is nestled amidst the beautiful Kirkendall neighbourhood just beneath the Niagara escarpment in Hamilton Ontario Canada.

Locke Street is a thriving and diverse shopping district that offers the connectedness of a tight community in the heart of a large and vibrant city.

The Locke Street Business Improvement Area encompasses all businesses on Locke Street South between Main Street West and Homewood Avenue consisting of more than 90 retail stores, professional services, cafés, and restaurants frequented by residents and visitors alike.

Come and enjoy a walk on Locke for the relaxed atmosphere as you explore an exciting mix of shopping and restaurants.
