In Port Colborne you’ll find restaurants and shops to explore, a lovely shoreline promenade and the HH Knoll Lakeview Park, the city’s signature waterfront park.
With two beaches, the fascinating Welland Canal and Lift Bridge, and 24 km of wonderful Friendship Rail Trail, this is a wonderful destination for families and cyclists who prefer dedicated trails.
Port Colborne Historical & Marine Museum and Heritage Village runs historical walking tours that capture the excitement of Port Colborne’s and the Welland Canal’s early years.
There is a significant trail junction where you can head north along the western edge of the Greater Niagara Circle Route along the Welland Canal Trail, an off-road path that follows the Welland Canal. This path links up with the Lake Ontario section of Great Lakes Waterfront Trail in Port Dalhousie, St. Catharines. It is part of the popular regional cycling experience—the Greater Niagara Circle Route. Running 170 km, the Greater Niagara Circle Route follows Lake Ontario, the Niagara River Recreation Trail, Lake Erie and the Welland Canal. A great weekend getaway.
