Lock 8 Gateway Park

The City of Port Colborne is looking for resident input on the redevelopment of Lock 8 Gateway Park as part of the overarching 2020-2030 Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

Lock 8 Gateway Park is located at Main Street West and the Welland Canal.

The Study:

Parks offer many benefits to the City of Port Colborne. Lock 8 Gateway Park is an important green space that offers residents the opportunity to watch ships moving through the canal; have a picnic, enjoy an event, or bring your family to enjoy the playground or the Algoport Skate and BMX Park.

The City of Port Colborne is exploring updates to the park and is looking for feedback on how residents use the park, and how they would like to see the spaced updated in the future. 

Online Public Engagement Survey:

A public engagement survey will be conducted between October 16, 2023, and November 17, 2023 on the city’s website. Hard copies of the survey will be available at Port Colborne City Hall, Vale Health and Wellness Centre and the Port Colborne Library. The responses will impact the development of conceptual plans that aim to enhance this space for residents and park users.

Anyone who completes the survey will be entered into a draw for a chance to win one of five $25 gift cards to a Port Colborne establishment of choice.
