About

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.

Two principal buildings on site at Prince Arthur’s Landing are LEED certified. Learn about ongoing biodiversity monitoring using iNaturalist to collect information on the biodiversity in and adjacent to the Thunder Bay Marina (Pool 6) habitat pond at the project link here.

In August 2020, Prince Arthur's Landing joined the Great Lakes Plastic Cleanup, with cleanup and capture devices installed thanks to the support of Environment and Climate Change Canada. Watch this space for more updates, including the first official trash report from the bin, coming soon!
