Upper Wellington Street is an Upper City (mountain) arterial road in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. It starts at the Jolley Cut, a mountain-access road to the north, beside Sam Lawrence Park and extends southward past Rymal Road where it ends at the Mount Hamilton Cemetery. It is a two-way street throughout. As with most of the "Upper" streets, their addresses start at roughly the point where their lower counterpart finishes just below the Escarpment and were originally labelled without the "Upper" prefix.

History[edit]

Named Upper Wellington Street because it is in alignment with Wellington Street in the Lower City Hamilton. Originally Wellington Street was called Lovers' Lane.[1]
