Hillcrest Park

A small park with a good view of the city. Take the time to visit and look out at the sleeping giant.

There is a reason you will find people here not matter what season (or weather). The view is amazing. A great spot for morning yoga, a destination to walk the dogs to or a perfect background for a picture.

A nice park with a great view of the City and harbour below. Probably a very nice place to come at dusk or dawn. A fun playground for kids too.

This park is easy to find,easy to park at, and very little walking involved. There is a low rock wall you can sit on to enjoy the view. The former city of Port Arthur (now part of Thunder Bay) lays below you as well as a great view of Lake Superior and the ships coming to the grain elevators in... More

The view from Hillcrest Park puts Thunder Bay into perspective. There is a spectacular view across the bay to the Sleeping Giant and then to the passage at the foot as well as a great view of Mount MacKay to the south. Sunrise and sun set is great for watching the light change colours across the scenery.

The view from Hillcrest Park is hard to beat. There is also a nice little playground for the kids to play at.
