Message from the Tourism Coordinator, Terry Dow

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our lovely facility. Our friendly staff is awaiting your arrival at the top of the mountain, Lock 7. Feel free to ask questions about the canal, our charming town, and what to do and where to go in Niagara. We are always in the know about what ships are passing through each day. Our board is regularly updated for your best time for boat watching on the Welland Canal. All visitors to the Lock 7 Complex receive a free copy of the Tommy Trent book, “The ABC’s of the Seaway”. This little blue book will tell you the most important information you need to know about the Welland Canal. We also like to welcome our guests with a free Maple Syrup Cookie, made with Canadas best maple syrup. This creamy little treat will tide you over until you get the chance to visit one of our restaurants. I encourage you to stay a while and sip a cup of flavourful tea in the Kissing Rock Cafe. Enjoy specialty teas and coffee while enjoying homemade treats and watching the ships pass by. Sincerely, Terry Dow
