Exciting News! Parks Canada’s Lake Superior NMCA team will be opening a small visitor centre in the newly-constructed Terrace Bay Beach Pavilion! This new waterfront facility is located on Lake Superior at the mouth of the Aguasabon River. The pavilion will welcome visitors looking to explore the northern coast of the lake. Upon opening, the centre will offer merchandise sales, community programs, interpretive programming, and celebratory events such as Canada Day and Lake Superior Day. A 300m boardwalk extends from the pavilion along a nature trail leading to Parks Canada red chairs, located at the eastern edge of the beach. Expect to see smiling Parks Canada staff on site at the Terrace Bay beach starting in Summer 2021. For more details check out the online article.
