Lock 8 park is on the "island" and gets its name from being next to and facing Welland Canal's Lock # 8. The Friendship Trail goes through the park so there are always walkers, joggers, cyclists and inline skaters on the winding trail. A beautiful walk up with flower planters and fountain leads to a viewing platform so that visitors can stand just above the height of a ship in the lock. There are public washrooms, a small pavillioin with firepit for summer barbecues and picnics, lots of space for kids to play
NEW in 2013 - the Algoport Skateboard and BMX park! It's finally finished with the offical opening on May 8, 2013. Port Colborne finally has a place for youth to hang out in the summer!
