Lock 8 Gateway Park

Overlooking the Welland Canal, and one of the world's longest locks, this beautiful viewing area and park was established November 5, 1979 to commemorate the visit by then Governor General Ed Schreyer and to mark then 150th anniversary of the opening of the 1st Welland Canal. As a regulating, or guard gate, Lock 8 raises or lowers ships 1 to 4 feet, depending on Lake Erie water levels. At 1,380 feet, it is one of the longest canal locks in the world. The "Jackknife" bridges at either end are raised and lowered as ships pass in, or out of the lock. Lock 8 Gateway Park contains an elevated viewing platform, flower gardens, fountains, picnic pavilion, and washrooms. Materials explaining the operation of the Canal, and information on ship schedules and destinations can be obtained at the Visitor Information Centre located across Mellanby Avenue from the park.
Located at Main Street West and the Welland Canal.
