Port Promenade during Canal Days.

This Promenade is the place to be during the August long weekend! Lots of stuff to see and lots of people around. We really liked Port Colborne and recommend a visit.

Cute little promenade to stroll along. The street highlights the canal and the bridge that moves upward. Good location to watch the ships enter the canal.

This is a nice paved path along the Welland Canal and West Street in Port Colburne, the Lake Erie entrance to the canal. If you are lucky enough you may get to see an ocean-going ship enter or leave the canal on its way through the Great Lakes. Across the street from the path are found some very nice stores... More

It is at least 10 degrees cooler at the lake and this is a nice, safe, clean beach to spend the day at.

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
