Beasley is bounded by James Street North to the west, the CN Rail line to the north, Wellington Street to the east and Main Street to the South.

This neighbourhood was named after Richard Beasley, one of the original settlers at the Head-of-the-Lake. It is one of Hamilton's four downtown neighbourhoods.

The most notable feature of Beasley is Gore Park and the Gore commercial area. The Gore was once the hub of commercial activity in Hamilton but has been in decline since the rise of the mall and the suburbs in the 1960s.

Beasley was also home to many of Hamiltons first industries.
