A tourist information building is here as well as an excellent monument for a genuine Canadian hero. Not anything in the way of activities here. A few short walking trails. If not interested in the history of Terry Fox, or gathering visitor info, the excellent...More
Aside from a statue honouring a Canadian hero and a tourist information location, the view of ships on Lake Superior and of the Sleeping Giant is probably the best anywhere around Thunder Bay. The most beautiful views can be at sunrise, particularly after a frosty...More
just outside of Thunder Bay, this monument to Terry Fox also gives a great vantage point of the Bay. there are viewers available. A natural place to have your picnic with lots of tables. There is also a Visitor's Centre.
I stopped as a bathroom break and loved the view. The people working inside the information centre were very friendly and the entire base of this monument is Amethyst which was really cool. Lots of parking spaces and picnic tables to sit and enjoy the...More
I can now say I’ve seen all three monuments to Terry Fox. Victoria, where he dipped his leg before he drove to St. John’s. That’s where the second one is, where he dipped his artificial leg into the Atlantic before he started. Seeing this one...More
I have lived in Thunder Bay for almost 50 years. I was 1 of many waiting for for Terry Fox to arrive in Thunder Bay. I was 11 years old... I remember the ambulance passing us to go get Terry Fox from the Highway and...More

Hi there, it was moved in 1993. In 1993, the MTO relocated the monument to a new rest area directly across the road. An old concrete base marks the original monument's location, and it is still visible in the tall grass from the new Terry Fox scenic lookout. The new Terry Fox Memorial Park has considerably more visitor parking than its predecessor, and it has much better facilities for tourists

Hi there Fanookin, My name is Chelsea and I work with the Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism Department. If I could add one thing, I would suggest to take a walk in the downtown area and visit local shops and the Jelly Bean Row houses on Gower Street (colourful houses). We also have a Railway Coastal Museum that may be of interest. If you are going to do the Ferryland Lighthouse Picnic, make sure you book it as soon as they start taking reservations! They do book up very quickly! You...More
Mid July - need suggestions for must dos and eateries (7 Replies)
We have used TA for several trips. I have a long itinerary will questions throughout. I really need suggestions for inexpensive restaurants due to budget and packing casual layers. We need lots of suggestions for Do Not Miss as this will probably be our only trip from Ontario to "The Rock". We are seniors who love nature and seafood but cannot do long difficult hikes. I was researching places to stay in St. John’s and noticed that places were filling up so we booked our flight with WestJet...More

May 29 (Sunday), Arrive at St. John’s Airport at midnight; Stay at a hotel at the airport May 30 (Monday), pick up rental car and drive to Trinity (Skerwink Trail, Puffin watching, boat tour), and overnight at Bonavista. May 31...More

Unfortunately, your need to be in St. John's July 1-4 means a lot of backtracking. There is only one highway across the island, so Route 1 that you take to get to Clarenville (where you turn off for Trinity) and Route 320 for Twillingate will have to be used again to get to Gros Morne. You are also not leaving much time to see the Trinity/Bonavista area which IMHO needs more than one night. The other thing is, I wouldn't overnight in Deer Lake. It's only another hour to Woody Point. My...More
