What a beautiful place for anyone
Jul 2020
The Welland Canal is a great place to have fun!

Kids have fun at the canal swimming paddle boards.

There were people fishing.

Someone had made a place to enjoy the Welland Canal.

We can even walk near the Welland Canal.

Sometimes the canal is completely pure blue. Wow!

Great viewing location
Oct 2020
We stopped at a small park beside the canal in Port Colborne.
Within 5 min of arriving the first ship passed through and immediately after that a second ship.
They are so close you really get to experience their size.
A very enjoyable stop along the way.

Friendship Trail Biking on the Canal

We bike from our home in Welland down the Canal to Port Colborne and often across to Crystal Beach. The Canal ride is always great.

great palce to bike, walk and swim

No matter which way you go on the trails you will find it calm and relaxing. If your looking for a place to swim the docks just off Lincoln St are great. Parking close to the water, and it is clean. I do recomend that small kids or weak swimmers wear a lifejacket as it does get deep fast. There is often events being held there as well. We go there often to swim with our dogs during the summer.

Fun time with my two older grandchildren

The museum was fabulous and the tour guides were great. The day was lovely. It was fun to see how all of the area had been built up and is still in use today.

Something unexpected
Aug 2019
Of you go don't act like a first timer don't just look then leave read everything you can at the information center of you go up to the observation deck be warned that by looking down as ships raise and lower you will get dizzy. Also travel down to visit other locks some of them you had to go up a hill but we'll worth it
Also set some time aside return to Niagara and watch a ship crossing over the road your on a great story to tell

Interesting to see ocean ships traveling through the middle of the city of Port Colborne. Ships travel through the locks to navigate from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario
