History[edit]

Named Upper Paradise Road because it is in alignment with Paradise Road in Lower City Hamilton. Present-day Paradise Road got its name because it led into Cootes Paradise. Paradise Road spent many years known as West Street, because it was the western boundary of the city fron 1846 until approximately 1920.[1]
