Toronto Summer 2012
Today in my yard.
Thunder Bay’s Marina Park is home to many events and festivals including Canada Day Celebrations and the Thunder Bay Blues Festival. This scenic park on Lake Superior has a spectacular view of the harbour with the Sleeping Giant on the horizon. The modern, full-service boating facility offers over 250 slips for residents and visitors.
Prince Arthur’s Landing, the area of Marina Park from Red River Road to Pearl Street, is a year-round destination. Its network of public paths and spaces are enlivened by Public Art installations that celebrate the rich culture and history of Thunder Bay and its region.
The Prince Arthur’s Landing project expands public park areas and recreation activities while reconnecting the downtown to its waterfront through the creation of a spectacular mixed-use village. The $130-million transformation of Thunder Bay’s waterfront has involved the complete transformation of three piers and the construction of a Spirit Garden, an Arts Centre, Mariner’s Hall, Water Garden Pavilion, Skating Rink, Splash Pad, Skate Board Park, Restaurants and Cafes combined with a new Hotel, Residences and Marina.

A beautiful, mostly forested park with a 1910 Logging Camp and Museum, playground area and a children’s small animal farm. The park also has a chalet with a concession and indoor picnic area, a series of recreation trails used for hiking and cross-country skiing that follow the Current River through Centennial and Trowbridge Falls Parks to join the Cascades Conservation Area.
Waverley Park is a public park located in the north end of Thunder Bay. It is the second oldest municipal park in Ontario that forms the centre of the Waverley Park Heritage Conservation District, a collection of historical homes, churches, schools, and other buildings at the centre of Port Arthur. I have the pleasure of living in one of those homes that faces into this beautiful park and all of it’s activity.
McGillicuddy is my 4 year old Chug (Chihuahua/Pug) that I call ‘Monkey’ most of the time because of the monkey sounds he constantly makes. This little goofball is a light in my life.
