Discover a port city in the centre of the continent. The Thunder Bay Waterfront is an area filled with year-round excitement and fun. Steps away from the shore you will find the Waterfront District which is home to dozens of shops, restaurants, bars and more.

Summer fun

In the summer months, sailboats fill the harbour, ocean-bound ships come and go and the smells and sounds of festivals fill the air. Families enjoy the splash pad and diners enjoy the restaurant and outdoor patio. Visit the Alexander Henry Museum Ship and view the public art that is found throughout the park. Take a selfie in front of the Sleeping Giant.

Wednesday nights come alive with the sounds of music at Live on the Waterfront. A free concert series that is over 100 years old, local artists and touring acts take the stage to entertain the crowd.

Boat tours

Explore the city on the water. Get up close to ships and industry and experience the magic of Lake Superior on a boat tour departing from the waterfront. At Pier 3, you will find sailboat tours, high-speed zodiac tours and fishing charter boats ready for you enjoy.

Alexander Henry Museum Ship

The Alexander Henry was built in 1958 at the Port Arthur Shipbuilding Company. It was named after British-Canadian Alexander Henry, an explorer and pioneer and partner in the fur-trade's North West Company. The ship contains nearly a dozen museum rooms where visitors can rediscover the area's transportation history aboard an integral part of it. The Alexander Henry Museum Ship is located at the Pool 6 dock.

Winter excitement

In the winter, the splash pad becomes an ice rink with a fireplace in the centre and Winter Fundays take over. Try snowshoeing, dog sledding, fat biking and more - all for free!

Public Art Walking Tour

Grab a map and wander the path admiring the many pieces of public art on display at Prince Arthur's Landing. Maps can be picked up at the Baggage Building Arts Centre.
