Claudelands is one of Hamilton’s oldest suburbs; reminiscent of the early settler days with many bay villas and bungalows in the area that date back to the late 1800s/early 1900s.
Because of their historic value, the Hamilton City Council has set strict rules on housing alterations, demolitions and new developments. Claudelands is home to the Claudelands Showgrounds; a site for agricultural shows and events in Hamilton. It also has a dog racing track. Recently the government has converted some of the land into a local park, providing ample opportunity for leisurely walks or sporting activities. Being close to central Hamilton means that Claudelands residents have easy access to its great range of amenities.
