Port Colborne is a quaint and friendly little city with a lot of friendly citizens. It has a lot of character and spice and variety in restaurants. Watching the ship go through the canal is always amazing.

A short little walk right by the canal, that gives you a great view of the passing ships and the drawbridge, with plenty of restaurants and shops along the way. If you want to see and buy candies from your childhood, make sure to pop in to the Candy Safari shop...very cool.

Being from the Prairies, it was a treat to be able to watch the bridge go up and stand along the railing while watching the ships pass through.

Port Promenade is a lovely walkway along Historic West Street that parallels the Welland Canal. It could use more garbage containers, but overall a great place for a walk on a warm sunny day. IT's also the place to be during Canal Days on the first weekend of August each year. Many tall ships are berthed next to the Promenade... More

Great place to wander around on the Canal Days Weekend, and at any other time. Busy place with lots of vendors, food. Three tall ships were in along with a Coast Guard patrol boat. And, when an ocean going ship passed through the canal, watch and wait for the lift bridge to go up and down. All great for kids... More

The Promenade was rebuilt a few years ago and is a wonderful place to walk, roller blade or ride a bike. Located next to the Welland Canal and starting at the Clarence Street Bridge, there are lots of park benches to enjoy an afternoon or evening watching the ships pass by. I love to pop into Minor's Fisheries for English... More

My wife walks while I wheel myself around in my wheelchair. We live in Port Colborne and use the trail weekly. We take our cameras and take tons of wonderful and beautiful photos of everything we see. The views are spectacular. I recommend using this trail whenever you can.

A very relaxing walk in good weather with ships of the world passing through. Sometimes Coast Guard, fishing boats, cabin cruisers, sailboats, and others are tied up along the wall waiting for passage through. Although we live here it's still very interesting watching the activity on a "working waterway".
