Must see · Water Body · Nature / Park
The Welland Canal, a ship canal connecting Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, allows ships to bypass Niagara Falls and played a major role in the development of Toronto through international shipping. Choose from a number of ways to experience the canal, starting with a relaxing jog or stroll on the pathway along the water and green lawns. Watch people kayak, or get on the water yourself and take a boat tour through the canal and docks. If you need to escape the heat and take a refreshing dip, you can do so by swimming near the boat launch.
