Prince Arthur's Landing at Marina Park

Viewing Circle at Marina Park

Prince Arthur's Landing at Marina Park is Thunder Bay's signature recreation destination. This community gathering place has transformed the City of Thunder Bay’s waterfront into a mixed-use village and animated waterfront park reconnecting the downtown to the shores of Lake Superior. Since opening in December 2011, Prince Arthur’s Landing has seen record attendance, the opening of several new businesses and 15 awards of excellence and counting! Waterfront development is ongoing - learn more about Phase 2.

Enjoy the public paths and spaces that are enlivened by Public Art celebrating our rich culture and history. Get active and enjoy some family time. Take in Canada Day CelebrationsLive on the Waterfront concerts (formerly Summer in the Parks) and Movie Nights during the long summer days. For winter activities, participate in Winter Fundays or SnowDay (Family Day). See the Community Events Calendar for other events and activities.

Marina Park is proud to have won first place in the categories "Best Place to Impress a Visitor," Best Park," Best Playground" and "Best Outdoor Rink" in the January 2015 Walleye magazine Readers' Survey.
