The water has been surprisingly kept clean since I was young. It used to be dirty 50 years ago. The Steel Plant is a large part of the vie in the west end but the rest of the views are great, the locks, the ships,...More

Went for a pre-supper jog along the boardwalk. Takes you to the Sault St Marie locks and canal as well as though downtown area. Several bistros and areas for a meal and/or drinks with a view of the water.

The boardwalk is well maintained and a great addition to the waterfront. I especially enjoy the end of the boardwalk and the Parks Canada site it leads to. Great breeze off the lake and view of boats out enjoying the day.
