The boardwalk connects with the Hub Trail which will give you a walking tour of the complete city. But while on the boardwalk, you can see people fishing ( or join in ), explore the waterfront or simply talk to the friendly people of the Sault

This is something special. It goes for many minutes along the St. Mary's River in Sault Ste. Marie. There are great wood carvings along the boardwalk, as well as features described. REALLY - Don't miss this if you have a half hour to spare. It is totally worth the time.

Nice waterfront boardwalk. Great spot for an evening stroll.. summer or winter, and easily accessible from many waterfront business locations including Station Mall, Delta Inn and City Hall/Bondar Park

Looking south over the river is nice, but ton the other side is a mall parking lot, so not too scenic that way.

This is a beautiful place to go for a walk. This summer there were Aboriginal students available for guided walks, which I thought was a great idea for the tourists, that included crossing the lock and touring Whitefish Island. This has to be better advertised. It is well-maintained by City employees, pet friendly and has sufficient resting places along the... More

The walk is very moderate. Excellent for a nice slow paced walk to stop and enjoy the scenic views. Its a culmination of many different aspects to the boardwalk. From fisherman on the pier to cyclists enjoying a bike ride, joggers and of course babies in strollers. the flowers are bountiful and such an array of colour. Its quite the... More

One can walk along the Canal near the Locks at one end to the boardwalk and then on Roberta Bondar Pavilion passing Clergue Park, the Art Gallery and City Hall along the way. One nice feature is the boardwalk for... More
