The Shipyards - Shipbuilders' Square


Shipbuilders' Square

Shipbuilders' Square commemorates the thousands of men and women who worked in the shipyard from 1906 -1992. Over 450 ships were launched from this site during the many years of the historic shipyard operation including merchant marine vessels and Victory ships.

Shipbuilders' Square houses a community stage for concerts, plays, farmers markets, buskers and general festivals which take place regularly throughout the summer season. Parking is available on Wallace Mews, at Shipyard Commons and in the Pinnacle Hotel.
