Tourism Thunder Bay operates two Information Centres for the convenience of the travelling public: The Terry Fox Tourist Information Centre as you enter Thunder Bay from the east on Highway 11/17, and the Pagoda by the Thunder Bay's waterfront at Red River Road and Water Street.
Winner of 'Best Information Centre 2013'
A 9 foot high bronze statue, set on a 45 ton granite base with a foundation of local amethyst, commands a breath-taking view of Lake Superior. The statue was erected in memory of Terry Fox, the courageous one-legged runner who embarked on a cross-country run for cancer research - the Marathon of Hope. The site is not far from the place where he ended his 5,342 km (3,339mi) run stricken with the disease that ended his life on June 28, 1981.
Amenities include wheelchair accessible, washrooms, vending machines, picnic area and payphone.
Located on Highway 11/17, 1 km (.6mi) east of Hodder Avenue. Open year-round.
