Prince Arthur’s Landing at 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, boats fill the harbour, ocean-bound ships come and go, and the smells and sounds of many festivals and events fill the air. Families can enjoy the splash pad, and diners enjoy the restaurants and outdoor patios.

Live on the Waterfront is a free concert series that is over 100 years old, where award-winning touring acts take the stage, entertaining the Thunder Bay crowds.

Experience the Big Lake and see the city from a whole new perspective on a Lake Superior Sailboat Tour with Sail Superior.

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, 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 takes over. Try snowshoeing, dog sledding, fat biking and more – all for free! Also check out the annual snow sculpture competition as part of Snow Day, which takes place on Family Day in February.
